McPhy, Plastic Omnium to develop hydrogen mobility ecosystem
Both partners will share their expertise to industrialise and increase the competitiveness of hydrogen mobility.
McPhy (a French company that specialised in zero-carbon hydrogen production and distribution equipment) and Plastic Omnium (a French automotive supplier specialised in the manufacturing and commercialisation of plastics) will collaborate on filling protocols and interfaces between hydrogen stations and high-pressure tanks.
The cooperation will be built upon R&D, training and potential commercial partnerships. Both companies plan to promote hydrogen to customers through consultation, followed by addressing specific needs.
Under the technological agreement, both companies will pool their expertise and cooperate on a sector-wide basis to strengthen station offering and develop the hydrogen mobility ecosystem, mainly working on filling protocols and interfaces between hydrogen stations and high-pressure tanks. The collaboration will help accelerate the promotion of hydrogen in transport and help towards sustainable mobility.
Laurent Carme, CEO of McPhy, said that the partnership would allow us to accelerate the development of hydrogen stations to prepare an industrialised, market-scaled and competitive offer.
Laurent Favre, CEO of Plastic Omnium, said that the partnership aligns with our strategy to develop expertise in this sector to extend technological and industrial lead in the rapidly growing hydrogen market.
