Sembcorp Inks Agreement for Green Ammonia Offtake Deal from India
Sembcorp Green Hydrogen Pte. Ltd., a subsidiary of Singapore-based Sembcorp Industries, has partnered with two Japanese firms for the procurement of green ammonia from India. According to a company statement, Sembcorp has entered into this collaboration with Sojitz Corp. and Kyushu Electric Power Co., Inc. This partnership sets the stage for the consortium to conclude a definitive agreement for the green ammonia offtake.
This collaboration builds on an agreement signed last December aimed at exploring the supply of green ammonia from India to Japan. The deal was unveiled at the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF) Clean Economy Investor Forum and witnessed by key officials: Ken Saito, Japan's Minister of Economy, Trade, and Industry; Tan See Leng, Singapore's Second Minister for Trade and Industry; and Sunil Barthwal, India's Commerce Secretary, according to the statement.
According to Sembcorp, the project unites three IPEF members—Japan, Singapore, and India—in a cross-border collaboration designed to accelerate the development of a low-carbon supply chain and support the region's transition to a clean economy. This initiative demonstrates the group's dedication to advancing the energy transition.
“Land in India has been secured for the development of the facilities after completing feasibility and preliminary design studies. The consortium is now working towards a front-end engineering design award for the project", the statement said.
Sembcorp, as the lead developer and operator of the project, will use renewable energy to produce an initial 200,000 metric tonnes of green ammonia annually in India, the company announced. Sembcorp Industries, a provider of energy and urban solutions, boasts a gross renewable portfolio of 4.7 gigawatts (GW) in India. Its total energy portfolio is 21.2 GW, including 14.4 GW of gross renewable energy capacity spread across 10 countries.
