Embedded in standard-sized containers, these high-capacity hydrogen storage systems will be supplied to Air Flow. They will equip the various hydrogen stations deployed by Hympulsion, armed arm of the Zero Emission Valley (ZEV) project.
A structure bringing together the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, ENGIE, Michelin, Crédit Agricole and the Banque des Territoires, Hympulsion wants to make the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region a pioneer in hydrogen mobility in France. The impressive deployment plan includes 20 hydrogen stations by 2024, some of which will be able to produce their hydrogen autonomously using electrolysers installed on site.
First deliveries mid-2023
Partner of Hympulsion, Air Flow will invest 9 million euros to ensure the transport and storage of hydrogen at the various refueling points.
“ Faurecia’s high-capacity hydrogen storage systems will be key for the ZEV project. They will allow the storage and transport of hydrogen between parent stations, daughter stations and charging stations to supply vehicle fleets sums up the press release from the equipment manufacturer. Developed jointly at Faurecia’s research and development centers in Bavans (France) and Augsburg (Germany), these systems will be delivered from mid-2023.
