Indonesia’s PLN opens first-ever green hydrogen plant

The plant is capable of producing 51 million tonnes of hydrogen per year.

State-owned energy company PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) launched the first green hydrogen plant (GHP) of Indonesia.

Located in Pluit, Jakarta, over the Muara Karang Steam Gas Power Plant (PLTGU) area, the hydrogen plant is 100% sourced from new and renewable energy (EBT) and could produce 51 million tonnes of hydrogen per year.

Green hydrogen is seen as one of Indonesia’s major initiatives for energy transition to adapt as a major source of energy for transportation and achieve net-zero emissions by 2060.
