GAIL (India) Ltd. is making a big splash in clean energy with the commissioning of its first green hydrogen plant in Vijaipur, Madhya Pradesh!

This marks a significant step towards a more sustainable future.

Green Giant Takes Center Stage

  • First Mover Advantage: GAIL is leading the charge in green hydrogen production in India with this pioneering plant.

  • 4.3 Tons of Clean Power Daily: The plant boasts a capacity of 4.3 tons of green hydrogen production per day, using eco-friendly methods.
