Commissioning of the first hydrogen refueling station in France producing green hydrogen is on!

On 11 April 2017, the hydrogen refueling station of the FaHyence project was officially commissioned in the presence of Mr. Roland Roth, President of the Communauté d’agglomération Sarreguemines Confluences (CASC) and Didier Vaucois, the EDF Grand Est Regional Director, as well as partners of the project and hydrogen vehicle users.

This represents the first hydrogen refueling station in France able to produce hydrogen on-site and on-demand from renewable energies for sustainable mobility!

McPhy designed, manufactured and integrated the first hydrogen system in France, combining an innovative high energy-efficient electrolyzer with a hydrogen station with a capacity of 40 kg per day. Adapted to different vehicle models and with a capacity for 25 recharges per day at 350 bar, this station contributes to cross-border hydrogen mobility with Germany and Benelux with refueling completed in just a few minutes.

Autonomous, the station’s electrolyzer system is configured to trigger the control for the production of hydrogen automatically and ensures the continuous availability of the equipment.

McPhy supports the CASC in operating the equipment throughout the project and also supplied a temporary hydrogen refueling during the design and construction phase.
