O. Chidambaranar Port (earlier Tuticorin Port), Tamil Nadu
  • The government plans to establish green hydrogen bunkering and refueling facilities at all major ports by 2035
  • The role of ports would be to provide land or make land available to foster hydrogen activities across the value chain production facilities, import terminals, pipelines, bunkering facilities, fuel stations etc. Further, they would partner with companies willing to place their facilities/assets/infrastructure regarding hydrogen value chain, on the available lands on PPP model.
