France Normandys Highest Capacity Station Inaugurated
  • One more step towards hydrogen mobility for professionals

The president of Evreux Portes de Normandie, Guy Lefrand and the president of SIEGE27, Xavier Hubert inaugurated the largest hydrogen charging station in Normandy, designed and manufactured by Atawey.

Atawey is proud to be a key player in deploying hydrogen mobility in France. The creation of regional hubs and regional networks such as EAS-HyMob in Normandy is key to developing professional hydrogen mobility. Building a network of hydrogen stations decreases the access time to stations while increasing the number of filling solutions for users during their activities and trips.

The more hydrogen stations for cars the more use and adoption of this green energy mode. The installation of carbon-free hydrogen stations along the trans-European road transport network aims to avoid 1654t of CO2 per year. 9 hydrogen stations in Normandy will be deployed within the scope of this project. Evreux filling station is the most important one and the most versatile. Developed by Atawey, with a capacity of 50kg, it is the only one of the network capable of supplying a fleet of more than 20 cars. Moreover, it is the only dispenser in Normandy with a double pressure terminal: 700 bars and 350 bars.

Because the hydrogen market is constantly changing, it is important to offer solutions that meet today’s challenges while being flexible for tomorrow. This is why ATAWEY green hydrogen station range includes solutions for pilot hydrogen mobility projects as well as evolutive stations for networking regions. Being as close as possible to market needs made it possible for Atawey to be a market leader on small and medium hydrogen stations today. Atawey now meets the needs of hydrogen station with a capacity of up to 200kg/day, i.e. a fleet of 200 cars.

Manufacturer of hydrogen stations made in France
Atawey hydrogen charging stations are entirely designed and manufactured in France. The majority of our subcontractors are located in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and 75% of our purchases and value-added come from this same region. In addition, all jobs (design, manufacture, installation, maintenance) related to Atawey hydrogen stations are created in France.

Detail of H2Flow-50-700 station
The installed station is versatile, designed for intensive use of a fleet of light vehicles. It can supply 50kg of hydrogen per day and delivers a pressure of 350 and 700bar as required by the vehicle manufacturer. For example, the filling of a Toyota Mirai (5kg) is done at 700bar, lasts 3 to 5 minutes, and can cover 600km. For a Renault Kangoo, which has a 1.8kg tank at 350bar, refueling takes less than 3 minutes and will allow 200km to be driven on hydrogen in addition to the 100km range on battery.
