BPCL to Establish India's First Green Hydrogen Plant and Fuel Station at Kochi Airport

15 Feb 2024 , 09:48 AM

Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) announced a significant step towards sustainable energy solutions through a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Cochin International Airport Ltd (CIAL). The collaboration aims to establish an integrated green hydrogen plant and a fuelling station within the premises of Kochi Airport, marking India’s first fuel station with green hydrogen in Southern India.

Under the agreement, BPCL will play a pivotal role in overseeing the establishment of the green hydrogen plant and fuelling station, contributing technological expertise and operational management. The primary objective is to harness the initial plant output to power vehicles within Kochi Airport, aligning with the company’s commitment to India’s energy independence and supporting initiatives such as ‘AatmaNirbhar Bharat’ and ‘Vocal for Local.’

The MoU outlines plans for a 1,000 KW project at Kochi Airport, with a targeted completion date set for 2025. This visionary collaboration leverages BPCL’s technological prowess to establish India’s first Integrated Green Hydrogen Plant, ushering in a new era for sustainable energy initiatives.

BPCL, as part of its broader commitment to environmental sustainability, aims to achieve net-zero targets by 2040, focusing on reducing scope 1 and scope 2 emissions. As a government-owned downstream oil producer, BPCL operates refineries in Bina, Kochi, and Mumbai. The company’s global standing is highlighted by its ranking of 309th on the Fortune list of the world’s biggest PSUs in 2020 and 792nd on Forbes’s ‘Global 2000’ list in 2021.

This collaborative effort signifies a strategic move towards green hydrogen adoption, emphasizing the importance of integrated solutions to address energy challenges. The project not only contributes to India’s renewable energy landscape but also positions Kochi Airport as a pioneering hub for sustainable and eco-friendly aviation.
