Indian steel pipe maker Welspun Corp and Tata Steel have signed a MoU to jointly work towards developing the framework for and subsequently manufacturing green pipes for the transportation of pure hydrogen and hydrogen blended with natural gas. The green energy strategic partnership with Tata Steel is to assess the suitability of a variety of pipes manufactured by Welspun Corp Ltd for the transportation of the fuel of the future, which will aid in mitigating climate change-led issues and build a secure future for posterity. This MoU will enhance the general understanding and knowledge of the transportation of hydrogen globally.In October 2021, Welspun Corp had joined the H2Pipe Joint Industry Project on Hydrogen Pipelines launched by leading industrial certification body DNV AS Energy Systems Pipeline Technology. It was a global industry project to develop the world's first guideline for transportation of hydrogen gas in existing and new offshore pipelines. DNV Maritime Advisory is leading the project on behalf of the consortium composed by Equinor, Gassco, TotalEnergies, and Shell. The study is co-sponsored by Gassnova through the CLIMIT program. Some of the activities have been subcontracted to Moss Maritime, Wärtsilä, Worley, Industeel and Heriot-Watt University.
