ACME selects Aspen Technology for hydrogen and ammonia plant
ACME Group has partnered with AspenTech at its inaugural green hydrogen and green ammonia pilot plant.
Aspen Technology, Inc. announced that ACME Group (a renewable energy company in India) has selected AspenTech’s Performance Engineering solution to optimize assets and achieve operational excellence at its first green hydrogen and green ammonia pilot plant worldwide.
AspenTech will design the hydrolysis process at the green hydrogen and green ammonia pilot plant and subsequently optimize the process configuration for large-scale green ammonia plants.
Based in Bikaner Rajasthan, this solar plant can produce green hydrogen with 5MWp (Megawatt peak), with the ability to scale up to 10MWp, which can reduce CO2 by up to 4,400 tons/annum.
ACME Group is also developing a global-scale green hydrogen and green ammonia plant in Duqm, Oman, as well as having announced plans to invest in a similar plant in Karnataka, India.
Amit Sharma, Vice President Engineering, ACME Group, said, “AspenTech was able to showcase strong modeling capabilities with sample models in green hydrogen leveraging Aspen Plus®.”
Lawrence Ng, Vice President of Sales, Asia Pacific Japan, Aspen Technology, commented, “In response to the need to meet both the increasing demand for resources and critical sustainability goals, this partnership underscores a deep commitment from both companies at the forefront of driving innovation to meet this dual challenge.”
