Mindtree's IoT solution to manage Larsen & Toubro’s Green Hydrogen plant

Larsen & Toubro

Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has now partnered with Mindtree to manage its green hydrogen plant in Gujarat Hazira, commissioned last month.

For this, the technology firms have designed and implemented digital command and control solutions.

Executive Opinion

Derek M. Shah, Senior Vice President and Head of Green Manufacturing and Development at L&T, said, "We are committed to providing innovative and sustainable solutions to meet the energy needs of tomorrow while reducing our environmental impact. At our heavy engineering unit in Hazira, we use natural gas for welding and heat treatment operations. The solution developed by Mindtree will help us effectively reduce the plant’s carbon footprint by mixing green hydrogen with natural gas, facilitating the swifter adoption of cleaner fuel and alternative energy sources. This will boost our ability to better fulfill our sustainability goals while significantly enhancing our operational efficiency."

Venu Lambu, Executive Director and President of Global Markets at Mindtree, said, "The solution brings together Mindtree’s extensive digital engineering and transformation expertise with L&T’s deep domain knowledge to advance the vision for a healthier environment. Armed with sophisticated edge-to-experience and IoT capabilities, the solution will provide further impetus to clean energy through enhanced, real-time data from electrolyzer instrumentation, control system, and related ecosystem with advanced AI/ML algorithms. It sets a new benchmark in intelligent systems that can turn data into sound sustainability decisions, responsible actions, and profitable outcomes."

Larsen & Toubro’s Green Hydrogen plant

Green hydrogen is the hydrogen generated via a chemical process known as electrolysis. This method employs an electrical current to split the hydrogen from the oxygen in the water. With the help of such a method, carbon dioxide emissions reduce to zero in the atmosphere.

The digital solution is built using Insights NxT, the IoT, and the data analytics platform. The solution enables remote monitoring and control of all services at the plant to help optimize operational and energy costs and drive effective utilization of resources such as battery energy and solar energy storage systems.

The solution will help reduce the plant's carbon footprint and improve operational agility by increasing electrolyzer efficiency and reducing downtime. Electrolyzers are used in the production of green hydrogen.
