McPhy Energy has been awarded the call for tender by the Valence Romans Sud Rhône-Alpes intercommunity authority for its first hydrogen refuelling station.

The facility in Valence becomes the fourth hydrogen refuelling station that McPhy Energy has been awarded since August, following previous stations in Lyon, Sarreguemines and Paris.

The station will be equipped with McPhy Energy’s modular solution for the hydrogen mobility market (McFilling®), a solution designed to supply a fleet of light utility vehicles for the intercommunity authorities, as well as for 10 private operators.

It will be installed near the Valence-TGV station in Rovaltain, with two business parks housing regional technical departments and numerous service sector companies. The station is scheduled to be operational by the end of the year (2015).

McPhy Energy Chairman and CEO, Pascal Mauberger, said of the contract award, “As contributors to the energy transition field, McPhy Energy puts its expertise in the service of zero emission mobility by deploying its infrastructure solution for hydrogen refuelling stations: McFilling®. We are very pleased by this new success of our turnkey modular and streamlined solution that is particularly well adapted to the needs of regional authorities.”

“Our teams are very proud in having won this call for tender in our historic region, and we wish to thank the intercommunity authority for their confidence. We are very glad to be able to contribute in this way to strengthening the regional network with a target for installing 100 refuelling stations by 2018 as part of the ‘Industry du Future’ plan.”
