GE Grid Solutions has secured a major contract from Larsen & Toubro to supply 380 kV T155 gas-insulated substations (GIS) for the world’s largest utility-scale green hydrogen plant in Saudi Arabia, according to a press statement. The mega plant will be located in OXAGON, the planned smart city of NEOM in northwestern Saudi Arabia. GE’s GIS design and the 1.5 breaker configuration will help ensure uninterrupted operation at the hydrogen plant and the wind and photovoltaic plants, which will produce captive energy for the plant.
The NEOM Green Hydrogen Company (NGHC) aims to produce carbon-free hydrogen at the plant using solely wind and solar power to produce up to 600 tonnes per day by the end of 2026.
GE is responsible for the design, manufacturing, supply, and supervision of the installation and commissioning of the 92 bays of GIS for the plant.
