Solar-LIT signs contract with L&T to supply Automatic Robotic Cleaning System (ARCS) for the World’s Largest Green Hydrogen plant at NEOM
Solar-LIT, a leading global supplier of Automatic Robotic Cleaning System–Solar-LIT, is excited to announce the signing of a significant contract with Larsen & Toubro (L&T) for the supply of Robotic Cleaning System for the world's largest utility-scale hydrogen plant powered entirely by renewable energy. The mega plant is located at Oxagon, in Saudi Arabia's NEOM region. The NEOM Green Hydrogen Company (NGHC) will produce carbon-free hydrogen using solely renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power to produce up to 600 tonnes of carbon-free hydrogen daily by the end of 2026. This collaboration marks a significant milestone in advancing the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's 2030 Vision for a clean and sustainable energy future.
Larsen & Toubro was awarded the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract to construct a 2.2 GWac PV Solar Plant, a 1.65 GW Wind Generation Balance Plant, and a 400 MWh Battery Energy Storage System under the Power Elements package. It will also construct 3 Nos of 380 kV Switching Stations and 306 KM of 380 kV Overhead lines required for the Kingdom's Grid network.
Commenting on the development, Mr. Ravindran, the Senior Vice President of Larsen & Toubro, said, "We appreciate the support and actions from the Solar-LIT team in cooperating with us in our previous projects for robot supplies. We look forward to a more fruitful cooperation in the NEOM Green Hydrogen project and a broader and deeper cooperation in the future."
Neom Green Hydrogen Company (NGHC) is an equal joint venture between ACWA Power, NEOM, and Air Products.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's ambitious plan to lead the global transition to clean and sustainable energy aligns perfectly with NEOM's role as the flagship project in this commitment.
