HRS has received a new order from SYDEV, the Vendée regional energy board, to deliver and install a green hydrogen refuelling station in Sables-d’Olonne.
This region located in western France is a pioneer in the area of transport decarbonization. The SYDEV is rolling out a bold green mobility program to develop a local ecosystem for producing and distributing 100% green hydrogen that will ultimately cover the whole region.
The first multi-energies station under this program (green power, green hydrogen and bio-CNG) was successfully commissioned in La Roche-sur-Yon during the second half of 2021. HRS supplied and installed the hydrogen refuelling station as part of a project coordinated by ENGIE Solutions.
The SYDEV has renewed its confidence in the ENGIE Solutions and HRS consortium for developing and technical operations of the new multi-energy station commissioned in early 2023 in Sables-d’Olonne.
HRS will supply a 200 kg/day dual pressure (350-700 bar) station supplying green hydrogen for all types of vehicles, including trucks, light commercial vehicles and cars. The station will be opened initially for company fleets, then later for the public.
The station’s modular design will allow it to meet the growing demand for hydrogen fuel and cover expected future requirements up until 2031.
Other stations as yet unallocated will be installed at a later date under the same regional project coordinated by SYDEV.
Hassen Rachedi, HRS Chairman & CEO, said, “We are also delighted to be working with ENGIE Solutions as joint contractors for this project, an arrangement that bodes well for the future.”
