McPhy is celebrating another success after its expertise in the hydrogen market has led to the company’s production and storage equipment to be used at a proposed filling station in Sarreguemines, France.

The hydrogen refuelling station solution is specifically designed for the hydrogen mobility market, combining McPhy’s McFilling®, McStore® and McLyzer® technologies.

The planned start-up for the station is the second half of 2016 to the inter-community authority (Communauté d’agglomération Sarreguemines Confluences or CASC), which is the operating entity.

“The construction of this new hydrogen refuelling station confirms that the hydrogen mobility solution for electric vehicles becomes a reality in France and Europe. The recent launch of the Hydrogen Mobility Europe (H2ME) project, with €32m in financing destined in particular for the construction of 29 refuelling stations in 10 European countries, and the announcement by the French retail auto industry association (Conseil National des Professions de l’Automobile) that has joined forces with hydrogen industry players, confirms the commencement of the infrastructure deployment phase,” states McPhy Energy CEO Pascal Mauberger.

Concluding, he said, “In this context, the relevance of our modular offering which, by combining our technologies for the vehicle refuelling, storage and production, contributes to the deployment of hydrogen infrastructures by limiting initial costs and optimising investments over time in relation to the specific needs of the auto market, is a source of particular satisfaction.”
