A consortium of French hydrogen specialists has been selected to install 14 hydrogen stations for vehicle recharging as part of the Zero Emission Valley (ZEV) clean mobility project in France.
The MAT consortium, formed by McPhy Energy SA (EPA:MCPHY), TSM Industrial Piping & New Energies and Ataway, has been selected by the ZEV project promoter Hympulsion in a dedicated call for tenders, McPhy has announced.
The project was initiated by the Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes Regional Council, which seeks to deploy 20 hydrogen stations and 1,200 hydrogen-powered commercial vehicles in major cities of the French southeast-central region within three years. Several of the stations will be equipped with electrolysers to produce green hydrogen on site.
McPhy said the MAT consortium, which it leads, has secured a framework contract to design, manufacture and integrate 14 stations. As part of its involvement, the company will equip five high-capacity McFilling hydrogen stations and supply several McLyzer electrolysers.
The ZEV project as a whole will bring more than EUR 11 million (USD 12.3m) in sales for the McPhy group, it said.
Hympulsion is a public-private joint venture formed by Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes Regional Council, French utility company Engie SA (EPA:ENGI), tyre manufacturer Compagnie Generale des Etablissements Michelin SCA (EPA:ML) and banks Banque des Territoires and Credit Agricole SA (EPA:ACA).
