At the recent “Green Hydrogen: Mobility & Industry” breakfast meeting, Stéphane Arnoux, of Engie Cofely and Clément Delisle of AREC announced that the first hydrogen production and distribution plant would be opened in the Toulouse region for 2020 on-site at the Blagnac Airport.
This hydrogen production plant will come under the guidance of the HyPort project, a company created by Engie Cofely which owns 51% and the AREC (regional climate energy agency, Occitanie region) which is a 49% owner. The company was created to develop “green” hydrogen from renewable sources.
Beside the infrastructure equipments for producing and distributing hydrogen and the related mobility usages, HyPort will also serve the hydrogen needs required by Safran and its partners (Dassault Aviation notably) for an ambitious innovation project called PIPAA.
