Friday Fallback Story: McPhy Signs a Strategic Partnership With Hype to Structure the Hydrogen Mobility SectorFebruary 11, 2022 | 6 min read February 11, 2022 | 6 min read
A strategic agreement with several dimensions:
- The commercial part consists in the securing of firm short-term orders in 2022 and in a privileged access to a potential market of about 50 high-capacity hydrogen stations and 15 to 25 megawatts of electrolysis by 2025;
- The technological part of the agreement will focus on the mutualization of expertise, with a view to standardizing equipment, improving technical performance and increasing their economic competitiveness;
- The financial dimension of the partnership will materialize by an investment of 12 million euros by McPhy in the form of convertible bonds to be issued by Hype.
- The development of hydrogen fuel cell technology is moving fast at Citroën as the first ë-Jumpy* Hydrogen van comes off the assembly line.
- With a range of 248 miles (400km)** and a fuel tank refill time of just three minutes, Citroën’s fuel cell technology meets the needs of operators embarking on longer journeys, as well as users requiring rapid refuelling in order to maximize the use of their vehicles.
- This first ë-Jumpy* Hydrogen is on its way to an important customer – SUEZ Group – that is preparing to carry out full-scale testing at its Carcassonne facility in France. This is a pilot location where SUEZ is investing in green hydrogen production, which is set to become a key focus in the coming years.
- Citroën is expanding its array of electrified utility solutions in order to adapt to the varied requirements of fleet and business operators, and to offer the most comprehensive range of options on the market – from Ami Cargo Electric all the way up the range to ë-Jumper***.
- Citroën and SUEZ Group – two long-standing commercial partners – are committed to common values: innovation in support of their customers, and the desire to build an environmentally-responsible world, based on a clear goal – rethinking fleet management by switching to clean mobility.
- JCB is investing £100 million on a project to produce super-efficient hydrogen engines, the company announced.
A team of 100 engineers is already working on the exciting development with the recruitment of up to 50 more engineers under way as JCB targets the end of 2022 for the first machines to be available for sale to customers.
