Onsite gas generation specialist HyGear has secured a contract to supply a hydrogen (H2) generation system for Latvia’s budding H2 mobility sector alongside energy and electromobility industry company Hydrogenis.
Under the deal, of which financial details were not disclosed, HyGear will install its Hy.GEN technology in the capital city Riga as part of a H2 filling facility for fuelling fuel cell buses.
HyGear’s Hy.GEN system converts natural gas into H2 via steam methane reforming, offering a “more reliable and cost-effective alternative to conventional supply methods,” according to the company.
“We look forward to the continuity of promoting hydrogen as a clean energy for the environment”

Niels Lanser, Director of Sales, signified, “We are pleased to be selected by Hydrogenis to be part of this project and we look forward to the continuity of promoting H2 as a clean energy for the environment.”
The H2 economy has steadily been gaining traction in Latvia, with Norway-based Nel Hydrogen Solutions also being awarded a contract to supply its H2Station® refuelling technology for cars and buses in the European country in September this year.
Netherlands-based HyGear has today announced the signing of a long-term contract with Saint-Gobain, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of flat glass, to supply its float line in Arboc, Spain with hydrogen through on-site generation.
