Plastic Omnium has signed a technological partnership with McPhy, a specialist in hydrogen production and distribution equipment. One of the central aspects of this partnership is to collaborate on filling protocols and interfaces between hydrogen stations and high-pressure vessels, thereby helping broaden the Group’s expertise across the entire hydrogen value chain.
Convinced of hydrogen’s major role in tomorrow’s sustainable mobility, Plastic Omnium has built up technological and industrial expertise since 2015. Its production capacities – now operational – enable the Group to provide its customers with a complete range of solutions across the entire hydrogen value chain, from high-pressure vessels to fuel cells stacks and the integrated hydrogen systems.
Laurent Favre, Chief Executive Officer of Plastic Omnium, explains: “Sustainable mobility challenges require an agile and open approach. This partnership with McPhy ties in perfectly with Plastic Omnium’s strategy to develop its expertise in this sector, in order to extend its technological and industrial lead in the rapidly growing hydrogen market.”
Laurent Carme, Chief Executive Officer of McPhy, adds: “This partnership with Plastic Omnium, with whom we share the same technological and industrial challenges, is an example of cooperation that McPhy intends to implement in order to cross-fertilize its expertise with other major stakeholders in the hydrogen sector, in a true sector logic. It allows us to accelerate the development of hydrogen stations, to prepare an industrialized, market-scaled and competitive offer”.
