Tata Steel Special Economic Zone Limited (TSSEZL) and HHP Five Private Limited (Hygenco) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to set up green hydrogen and green ammonia projects at TSSEZL’s Gopalpur Industrial Park in Ganjam district of Odisha.


Hygenco, known for its low-cost green hydrogen production, plans to build a new plant in Ganjam area to produce green hydrogen, green ammonia and related products. The plant is expected to have an annual production capacity of 1 million tons, and the first phase of the project is expected to be put into operation in December 2026.


TSSEZL Managing Director Manikanta Naik expressed satisfaction with the collaboration, noting that the industrial park’s current committed total green hydrogen and green ammonia production capacity is approximately 2.6 million tons per year. This reinforces Gopalpur Industrial Park’s position as India’s green hydrogen and ammonia hub.

Amit Bansal, founder and CEO of Hygenco, highlighted their goal of producing cost-effective green ammonia and highlighted their strategic vision to become a dominant global player. The green ammonia produced at the facility is planned to be exported through the existing Gopalpur port facility. Utility corridors currently being developed will enhance the project’s logistics and pipeline connectivity.

Hygenco has secured several long-term offtake agreements for green hydrogen in India, including India’s first megawatt-scale plant in Hisar, Haryana.

Previously, TSSEZL signed an agreement with other manufacturers to build a green hydrogen and ammonia project with a combined annual production capacity of 1.6 million tons in Gopalpur Industrial Park. The new agreement with Hygenco further cements Gopalpur’s position as a key player in India’s green energy sector.
