McPhy is excited to announce the successful delivery of our pioneering Gigafactory located in Belfort, France.

In a significant ceremony, the keys were handed over to Marie Sonntag, Gigafactory Manager, by our esteemed real estate developer GSE. The event was graced by the presence of McPhy’s CEO Jean-Baptiste Lucas, the dedicated McPhy team, and esteemed representatives from Groupe Essor, including Nicolas Bouscaud, Chief Operating Officer, and François Le Douaron, Operational Manager.


This milestone marks a monumental step in McPhy’s journey, symbolizing the fruition of a three-year-long collaboration and the ambitious scaling of our operations. We extend our deepest gratitude to the #McPhyTeam for their relentless dedication, and to our partners GSE and Groupe Essor, whose unwavering support has been instrumental in the realization of this venture, setting a new benchmark for the #hydrogen industry in both France and Europe.

The Belfort Gigafactory stands as a testament to McPhy’s commitment to advancing the French and European strategies for low-carbon hydrogen production, aligning with broader objectives of reindustrialization, decarbonization, and enhancing energy sovereignty.


Antoine Ressicaud, McPhy’s Chief Operating Officer, shared his enthusiasm: “We received the keys to our Gigafactory in Belfort this Tuesday, February 20, 2024. Our first employees will move in early March to commence industrial operations in the second quarter. This is a pivotal moment for McPhy, marking the culmination of three years of hard work. We are set to manufacture large-scale electrolyzers, scaling up to 16 megawatts—quadrupling the capacity of our largest models produced to date.”

The inauguration of this facility heralds the launch of France’s first Gigafactory dedicated to electrolyzers, a cornerstone in the nation’s hydrogen economy.

This project has been realized with the support of the French State under the Recovery Plan and backed by the European Union – Next Generation EU, embodying a collective vision for a sustainable future.
