McPhy will deliver a second hydrogen station to CNR and ENGIE in Lyon

A second hydrogen station with CNR and ENGIE in Lyon for clean mobility

• A daily potential of 8,000 km of zero-emission hydrogen mobility for the Lyon area

• The station will be powered by an electrolyzer for a true clean mobility chain. CNR will provide renewable electricity and operate the electrolyzer. ENGIE, via its subsidiary GNVERT, in charge of the distribution of alternative fuels, will operate the recharging station and distribute green hydrogen to vehicles

• 10th hydrogen station reference in France, bringing the daily potential of clean mobility up to 29,000 km for McPhy stations

La Motte Fanjas, April 11, 2018 – 5:45pm – McPhy (Euronext Paris Compartiment C : MCPHY, FR0011742329) a specialist in hydrogen production, storage and distribution equipment, announced today the signature of a tripartite contract with CNR (Compagnie Nationale du Rhône) and ENGIE GNVERT for the installation of a second McPhy Hydrogen station at the Edouard Herriot port in Lyon. With a capacity of 80 kg per day, the future station will be connected to an electrolyzer that produces green hydrogen on site and on demand. CNR will provide the renewable electricity and operate the electrolyzer. GNVERT will operate the recharging station and distribute green hydrogen to vehicles.

The installation of this second station in Lyon demonstrates the continued confidence our partners have in McPhy’s clean mobility

Pascal Mauberger, Chief Executive Officer of McPhy 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.”

McPhy, a key partner in the deployment of clean mobility solutions

As part of the European project H2ME, funded by the European Joint Undertaking on Fuel Cell and Hydrogen (FCH JU), this new station project demonstrates the relevance of McPhy’s technologies, able to meet the growing needs of customers for large-scale mobility solutions. This station will have 4 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 hydrogen per day, representing a daily potential of 8 000 km of zero-emission mobility.
Furthermore, this project represents the second McPhy station in France connected to an electrolyzer that can produce hydrogen 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.

The technologies and the infrastructure of McPhy are ready for the “ramp up” that was announced in the Hydrogen Council study “Scaling up” . In this context, McPhy continues to develop its technologies in order to accompany its clients in the deployment of larger-scale alternative energy solutions and to actively contribute to building the network of hydrogen infrastructures in the French territory.

The 10 McFilling stations installed or in the process of being installed in France represent a daily potential of 29,000 km of zero-emission mobility.
