France Hydrogen Refueling Solutions (HRS), which offers hydrogen refuelling station solutions, will supply a hydrogen refuelling station and install the piping infrastructure connecting the electrolyser to various industrial and mobility uses to the HYGO Vannes project in Morbihan, Brittany, France.
HyGO is a joint venture of SEM of Morbihan Energies and Engie Solutions, which aims to supply green hydrogen to the Michelin plant and a new public hydrogen refuelling station located in the city of Vannes.
The project will produce green hydrogen up to 300 kg/day through electrolysis and will supply to a public green hydrogen refuelling station which will be built around the Michelin plant at ZI du Prat in Vannes. It will also supply green hydrogen to the plant for its heat treatment processes.
The refuelling station is a dual pressure 350 and 700 bar with a capacity of 200 kg/day and will be commissioned later this year.
HRS will receive €780k of financial support for its solution under the Hydrogen Mobility Ecosystems launched by ADEME (French energy and environmental agency). The agency has also allocated around €992k to support future buyers of fuel cell vehicles who use this refuelling station.
HRS Chairman & CEO Hassen Rachedi said that HRS has been supporting the HYGO project for several months. The project is very ambitious, where green hydrogen produced on-site will be supplied to various uses, both industrial and mobility, which will be a first of its kind in France.
HRS has already supplied 34 refuelling stations of size 100 to 500 kg/day, where 32 are now operating in Europe and 2 in the US.
