ACME Group has secured land in the Gopalpur Industrial Park for a new hydrogen & ammonia mega-project. Located in Odisha, northeast India, the new facility will be powered by renewable energy, producing up to 1.3 million tonnes of renewable ammonia per year. Japan-based IHI will partner with ACME to develop the project, following on from an ammonia-centric partnership signed this February. From Gopalpur port (directly connected to the industrial park), ammonia will be shipped domestically, and exported to key global markets: the APAC region to the east, and Europe to the west (via the Suez Canal).
This project will help us to offer [“Made-in-India”] Green Hydrogen and Green Ammonia to domestic and international markets at competitive prices.Manoj Upadhyay, ACME Group Founder & Chairman in his organisation’s official press release, 25 Aug 2023
