H2V, HydrogenPro and Mitsubishi partner for hydrogen projects
The energy sector is rapidly changing, driven by policy shifts, technological innovation and renewable energy evolution.
HydrogenPro, H2V Industry and Mitsubishi Power Europe have established a consortium to develop and deliver green industrial hydrogen projects to support the European and French decarbonisation initiatives.
Under the MoU, the three members’ long-term partnership will combine their expertise, where H2V Industry will be responsible for the development phase, while HydrogenPro and Mitsubishi Power Europe will provide design, engineering, procurement and system & components expertise.
The current projects are founded on HydrogenPro´s 100 MW high-pressure modular system and represent the first large industrial-scale projects.
The consortium will also explore the European supply chain to determine European sourcing, manufacturing, and assembly in France.
H2V Industry is a subsidiary of the French-based Samfi Invest group (Samfi) and is involves in several green industrial-scale hydrogen projects, where HydrogenPro has been contracted to supply the electrolyser installations for these sites.
Jean Marc Leonhard, MD of H2V, said, “H2V Industry is pleased to further reinforce its technical and economical offerings through this partnership with our trusted partners Mitsubishi Power Europe and HydrogenPro. He further added, “ The opportunity to manufacture and assemble key components of the hydrogen value chain in France is a major driver to secure our projects, both in terms of capacity and services.”
Marten Lunde, CEO of HydrogenPro, said, “HydrogenPro will leverage its new, improved and cost leading Capex-Opex electrolyser technology for large industrial hydrogen installations, reducing power consumption by 14% giving a significant cost advantage compared to other technologies.”
Markus Bruegmann, Senior VP for Mitsubishi Power Europe, said, “These hydrogen projects, which will use HydrogenPro´s leading technology, are part of our strategy to provide short- and long-term energy storage solutions.”
