Last December, Atawey celebrated the installation of its 15th hydrogen charging station for hydrogen mobility.
The H2Spring-6-350 station was newly installed and inaugurated in December in Audun-le-Roman, in Meurthe and Moselle. Commissioned by the Coeur de Pays Haut community of municipalities on behalf of Engie Cofely, it will produce two kilos of hydrogen per day and recharge three Kangoo H 2s at 350 bar.
With the colors of a spring landscape reminiscent of the neighboring wind field, designed as part of the same project (MHyRABEL), the station represents for Atawey the youngest of a growing family.
In less than 4 years, Atawey has designed, manufactured and installed 15 stations across France in Morbihan, Ile d’Yeu, Auvergne, Savoie, La Manche, Ariège, Indre et Loire, Var, and a first in Switzerland.
Of these 15 stations, 11 are capable of producing their hydrogen on-site by electrolysis of water, and for some of them supply hydrogen at 700 bar.
In 2020, the family should see the arrival of the big sisters: The new models H2Spring-40-700 and H2Flow-40-700 being installed are capable of dispensing 40 kg of hydrogen per day, at 350 and 700 bar. The H2Spring-40-700 produces its hydrogen on-site, always by electrolysis of water.
The first will be delivered at the start of the year in the municipalities of Chambéry (Engie Cofely) and Evreux (EAS-HyMob project).
For 2020, Atawey has no shortage of projects. The Last Mile project is advancing rapidly, the little brothers charging stations for hydrogen bikes should be born very soon in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region thanks to a framework agreement, a desire to expand the family in Europe, a new fundraising for all these mouths to feed, as well as other surprise gifts.
With turnover doubled between 2017 and 2018, going from 700,000 to 1.5 M €, Atawey is experiencing significant growth and should double again in 2019 to reach 3 M €. Jean-Michel Amaré, President and Cofounder, aims for € 7 million in turnover in 2020.
