INOXCVA flags off India’s largest indigenously developed liquid H2 tank
INOXCVA has announced that it has flagged off the largest bulk Liquid Hydrogen Storage Tank ever made in India. Built with a massive storage capacity of 238 m3, the Tank embarked on its journey from INOXCVA's Kandla facility to its destination for a clean energy demonstration project in South Korea. This bulk cryogenic storage tank is built to European Standards and to meet the Korean Gas Safety (KGS) requirements.
In 2020, Doosan Corporation announced the construction of South Korea's very first hydrogen liquefaction plant of 5 Tons Per Day capacity for the Changwon Hydrogen Liquefaction Project with Gyeongnam Province, Changwon City, at Doosan's site at the Changwon Port. The plant is slated to commence commercial operations in 2023, offering supplies to hydrogen charging stations nationwide for buses, trucks, and trams, that need to be recharged with hydrogen as the ultimate clean fuel.
Doosan Corporation had signed an agreement with Air Liquide Engineering & Construction to support the construction of this liquid hydrogen plant as an enabler of clean transport development in the country. Under this framework, Air Liquide Engineering & Construction, France, placed the order for the design, manufacturing, and supply of a Liquid Hydrogen tank with a capacity of more than 238 m3 to INOXCVA.
Speaking on the historic milestone in India's cryogenic journey, Siddharth Jain, Director, INOXCVA said, "We are honored to have designed, engineered, and manufactured the largest liquid hydrogen tank ever made in India, and become a part of a global clean energy initiative. We have demonstrated our world-class cryogenic capabilities for projects of such magnitude. This tank, which is the first in a series of many such solutions to be manufactured at our Kandla facility, will strengthen India's Hydrogen infrastructure and support the country's vision of becoming a Green Hydrogen Hub and augment the adoption of this clean gas as an energy alternate."
