Messer and HyGear have entered into a long-term partnership, through which they will jointly supply high purity hydrogen to two end-users in the Czech Republic.

Global Tungsten & Powders and OSRAM Česká republika were today (19th Nov) named as the two customers that will benefit from the partnership.

The contract is based on HyGear’s Gas-as-a-Service model, in which the company retains ownership of the systems and remains responsible for the operation and maintenance of the technology at the customer’s site.

Commenting on the partnership, Niels Lanser, HyGear’s Chief Commercial Officer, said, “We are glad to become a long-term partner with Messer as one of the leading industrial gas suppliers.”

“This contract demonstrates the attractiveness of our Gas-as-a-Service model and the additional benefits that can be achieved by teaming up with a world class industrial gas company like Messer. This is in line with our mission to decentralise hydrogen production globally.”

Jaromir Köppl, Commercial Director of Messer Technogas, Czech Republic, added, “We are proud that together with HyGear we are able to offer to our longstanding customers GTP and OSRAM solution, which combines delivery of hydrogen produced on-site and from tube trailers. Such solution brings highest level of flexibility and reliability of hydrogen delivery to our customers.”
