Essar is massively committed to investing in energy transition and is building a portfolio of companies in this space. Vertex Hydrogen is a central component of that vision, which will be instrumental in helping create a hydrogen future, with an investment of over £1 billion. The project is poised to create jobs and support local communities for decades to come.
Since 1969, and over the last 50 years, Essar has also been dedicated to developing the core sectors of the Indian economy through Greenfield and Brownfield investments. Essar promoters took a conscious decision to invest in these sectors and make India self-sufficient. They pioneered India’s private sector entry into capital intensive businesses, like Steel, Oil & Gas, Ports and Power. Essar is one of the earliest and largest contributors to the Make in India, as well as Skill India, initiatives of the government. Not only has it created world-class assets, but also nurtured a skilled workforce with the ability to operate these assets.
Since 2010, Essar Global Fund undertook a massive investment programme of over USD 20 billion in core economy sectors. It created world-class assets that have attracted the best global companies, like Vodafone, Rosneft, Arcelor Mittal, American Tower Corporation and Teleperformance, etc., to invest in India and infuse FDI of more than USD 40 billion.
The Fund has a global portfolio of fully operational assets with investments in Indonesia, United Kingdom, North America and Africa, apart from India. Essar continues to evaluate business opportunities across geographies with a focus on building long-term partnerships.

In Odisha in India, Essar is building a 14-MTPA Iron Ore Pellet project which will cater to the region’s rising steel demand. With a vision to produce environmentally compliant pellets, Minmet will deliver high quality pellets of DR and BF grade.
Essar is also investing in building a 4-MTPA steel plant in Ras Al-Khair, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).
