BROSSARD, Québec — CHARBONE HYDROGEN Corporation (TSXV:CH) (“CHARBONE”) is pleased to announce an important milestone with the signature , of a non-binding Letter of Intent (the “LOI”) with ELOGEN SAS (“ELOGEN”) a GTT Company, pursuant to which CHARBONE will be securing its supply chain of PEM electrolysers (Proton Exchange Membrane) for up to 100 Megawatts over a period of four (4) years from 2023 to 2026 under a definitive multi-year master supply agreement (the “Agreement”) to be negotiated by the parties on/or before November 30, 2022. The PEM electrolysers to be supplied by ELOGEN to CHARBONE will be comprised of a mix of the full range of products offered by ELOGEN, including 0,5 MW, 1,0 MW and the 5,0 MW for all CHARBONE North American green hydrogen projects.
Under the Agreement, the parties will negotiate final delivery dates, models, quantities, and prices of the PEM electrolysers to be delivered. Furthermore, the LOI contains a provision for CHARBONE to consider and exercise an option for locally assembling and/or manufacturing in Canada and USA, the PEM electrolysers and other components under ELOGEN supervision as per terms and conditions to be negotiated and agreed upon by the parties during the validity period. Completion of the transaction is subject to further negotiation and execution of the Agreement and customary conditions for this kind of agreement.
“CHARBONE is truly pleased to announce this non-binding LOI for the negotiation of a multi-year’s master supply agreement with ELOGEN, a strong partner and true leader in the field of engineering and manufacturing of electrolysers,” said Dave Gagnon, CEO and Chairman of Charbone. “The combined strengths of ELOGEN in membrane technologies with multiple patents, and the engineering, manufacturing and servicing expertise make the offered products a reliable choice and a bankable solution for CHARBONE expanding rapidly into the decarbonization of the Canadian and North American economy.”
“This strategic LOI conducting to a formal multi-year’s master supply agreement of Elogen technology with Charbone shows the road path for Elogen entry into the North American market, comments Jean-Baptiste Choimet, Managing Director at Elogen. It is consistent with our strategy of teaming up with strong local partners before entering a new geographic area. We look forward to our collaboration with Charbone, an innovation-driven company, with a strong vision on green hydrogen production and a focus on developing green hydrogen ecosystems, from renewable energy to production, from regional hubs to end-users.”
CHARBONE is a Canadian green hydrogen group established in North America. The company’s strategy is to develop modular and expandable hydrogen facilities and regional hubs.
