Fabrum Solutions merges with AFCryo
Liquid hydrogen is the future - it opens up new possibilities for long-distance transport, marine and aviation.
Fabrum Solutions announced today that it has merged with AFCryo, a world leader in cryocooler and liquefiers, and now operates as Fabrum.
The company has also appointed Dr Ojas Mahapatra as Chief Executive Officer. The new corporate identity and appointment follow a period of accelerated growth for Fabrum, fuelled by demand for its mission-critical technology solutions across a broad range of global industries, including green hydrogen systems.
Fabrum, established in 2004, has earned a global reputation as a leading innovator in the design, development, and manufacture of composite cryostats, superconducting motors and cryogenic systems. Its world-leading cryocooler and liquefier systems, produced by Fabrum joint-venture company AFCryo since 2017, will now be designed and manufactured by Fabrum and marketed under the AFCryocooler brand.
Christopher Boyle, Managing Director and co-founder of Fabrum, says the company’s changes and new identity reflect its future vision and purpose.
Boyle says that with the significant growth in the business, he and co-founder Hugh Reynolds identified the need to build out the leadership team’s capability.
Customers globally use Fabrum’s cryogenic technologies to liquefy and recondense nitrogen, oxygen, methane, argon, neon, biogas and hydrogen for animal science, food and beverage, research, medicine and energy applications.
In conjunction with UK company CPH2, the company unveiled a green hydrogen production system to enable hydrogen production on-site in a decentralised, containerised system for point-of-use refuelling. The revolutionary system splits water into pure hydrogen and medical-grade oxygen without the polymer membrane used in common electrolysers by combining Fabrum’s AFCryocooler with unique and patented Membrane-Free Electrolyser™ technology from CPH2.
