Dedicated hydrogen (H2) solutions provider McPhy has signed a tripartite contract with CNR (Compagnie Nationale du Rhône) and ENGIE subsidiary GNVERT for the installation of a second McPhy H2 station in Lyon, France.
Located in Edouard Herriot port, the future station will be connected to an electrolyser that produces green H2 on site and on demand. It will have four times more capacity than the station already deployed at the Port de Lyon in 2016 and will allow CNR and ENGIE GNVERT to deliver 80 kg of clean H2 per day, representing a daily potential of 8,000 km of zero-emission mobility.
CNR will provide the renewable electricity and operate the electrolyser. GNVERT will operate the recharging station and distribute green H2 to vehicles.
Pascal Mauberger, McPhy CEO stated, “I thank our clients and partners at CNR and GNVERT for their continued confidence by entrusting us with this second installation in Lyon. This new success demonstrates the pertinence of our technologies in meeting both the increasing needs of our clients and the challenges for the transition to low-carbon energy.”
This project represents the second McPhy station in France connected to an electrolyser that can produce H2 on site and on demand from renewable energy. This station will be equipped with two distribution hubs that can power light-duty and heavy-duty vehicles. It is scheduled to start operations in 2019.
Dedicated hydrogen (H2) solutions provider McPhy has participated in the laying of the first stone of the ‘Jupiter 1000’ demonstrator, France’s first Power-to-Gas demonstrator connected to the natural gas transportation network in Fos-sur-Mer.
