GCK chooses HRS to speed up charging solutions for hydrogen mobility
HRS, the European designer and manufacturer of hydrogen refueling stations, announces that it has received a definitive order for an HRS14 hydrogen refueling station, with a capacity of 200 kg/day, from Flex’hy, one of the eight companies forming Green Corp Konnection, an industrial group offering technological solutions to accelerate the decarbonization of transport.

The latest addition to the GCK group, Flex’hy is an agile hydrogen distributor that provides a solution anywhere, anytime. As a player in the structuring of the hydrogen sector, Flex’hy offers a range of mobile refueling stations, with or without on-board hydrogen production, adapted to a wide range of uses to encourage the priming of hydrogen ecosystems.
HRS and GCK share a common vision of the need for a transition of heavy mobility with green hydrogen as a solution to the decarbonization of transport. Indeed, heavy goods vehicles, which represent only 2% of the vehicle fleet, account for more than 22% of CO2 emissions in the French transport sector. The success of this transition will depend on the massification of uses and the structuring of green hydrogen ecosystems associating industry and mobility
To meet these major challenges and prepare for the mass deployment of its solutions, GCK has chosen HRS and its proven range of large capacity hydrogen refueling stations. HRS will design, supply, install and commission the 200 kg/day dual-pressure hydrogen refueling station.
Hassen Rachedi, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of HRS, states : « The energy transition in the transport sector will require hydrogen solutions for heavy vehicles, as the advantages in terms of autonomy and weight are significant. We are therefore very pleased to have been chosen by GCK and Flex’hy to deploy an HRS station dedicated to the “hydrogen” heavy vehicles they have developed. »
For Éric Boudot, Managing director of GCK: « GCK and HRS share the same ambition to decarbonize transport. Knowing the know-how and technical expertise of HRS, we have chosen to order a hydrogen refueling station from HRS through our company Flex’hy, which is intended to be an agile hydrogen distributor enabling the initiation of hydrogen ecosystems. »
