McPhy, a company specializing in zero-carbon hydrogen production and distribution equipment (electrolyzers and hydrogen stations), announced the establishment of a new industrial site dedicated to the research and mass manufacture of hydrogen stations.
This new facility, scheduled to open in March 2022, will consolidate the research and innovation, engineering, and manufacturing activities currently located in La Motte-Fanjas and Grenoble, as well as support functions. By 2022, the facility will have increased McPhy’s capacity to manufacture hydrogen stations sevenfold, from 20 to 150 units per year, and created over 100 direct jobs in the Grenoble area. Thus, the Group is armed with an extremely effective platform for fluidifying its industrial and logistical processes, thereby optimizing project execution timelines and customer service.
Laurent Carme, CEO of McPhy, states: “This new industrial site marks an important milestone in McPhy’s history and in our transition to industrial scale. McPhy has all the technological and industrial assets to serve a fast-growing hydrogen mobility market. This project will lead, in term, to the creation of over 100 jobs in the Grenoble region. I would like to thank the teams of McPhy for all the commitment they put, on a daily basis, into making this project a great success. I also warmly thank all the services of the French State and local authorities, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region and Grenoble-Alpes Métropole, for their support in this venture for the energy transition and the reindustrialization of the territories”.
Antoine Ressicaud, Chief Manufacturing & Procurement Officer: “From March 2022, we will have a state-of-the-art production tool, to better serve our customers. This industrial set-up will allow us to multiply by 7 our production capacities of hydrogen stations and strengthen our technological leadership in green hydrogen production and distribution equipment. From an economic standpoint, our ramp-up and the volume effect will result in significant gains in competitiveness”.
