Manoj K Upadhyay, Founder & Chairman, ACME Group, said, “The signing of land reservation agreement will allow us to kick start pre-construction activities. We have hired environmental consultants and owner’s engineers Black & Veatch and we plan to start the construction at Oman as soon we commission our first green hydrogen and green ammonia plant at Bikaner in India.”

The Chairman also informed that the plant in Oman would be developed in phases and the first phase is likely to be commissioned by end of 2022.

In March 2021, The Oman Company for the Development of the Special Economic Zone at Duqm (Tatweer) and ACME Group signed a MoU to set up a large scale facility to produce Green Hydrogen and Green Ammonia.

ACME has informed that the plant will be an integrated facility using 3 GWp of solar and 0.5 GWp of wind energy to produce 2,400 TPD of green ammonia with an annual production of approx. 0.9 million tons. This would be the first facility of this scale to be operational by 2022. The facility is being built to export green ammonia to demand centers like Europe and Asia with an investment of $3.5 billion.

ACME Group has also said that it’s in the process of commissioning the world’s first integrated green hydrogen and green ammonia plant in Bikaner, India. Green hydrogen will be produced using 5 MWp, expandable to 10 MWp, from the solar plant, which is an integral part of the project. Besides this, the firm has also signed up for a possible green hydrogen project in Karnataka for which it signed an MoU with the stte government recently. ACME is also a founding member of the IGHPA (Indian Green Hydrogen Producers Association) , a grouping of renewable energy developers banding together to promote green hydrogen production.

ACME Group has built a solar portfolio of 6 GWp. Of this, the Company currently holds a portfolio of 5.25 GWp that includes 2.2 GWp of operational capacity and another 3.05 GWp is under construction. These are spread across 12 States in India.
