Snam on Monday (Feb 21) unveiled the two technology companies as the first to join its Hyaccelerator programme, from about 70 applications from businesses in the hydrogen space, at the Leonardo da Vinci Museum of Science and Technology in Milan.

Believed to be the first corporate start-up accelerate programme focused on hydrogen at a global scale, the Hyaccelerator programme now hopes to support showcase and help develop technologies developed by EH Group and Atawey to push-forward with a decarbonised future.

Established on the shores of Lake Geneva, Switzerland in 2017, EH Group had a vision to challenge the two main commercial hurdles inherent to fuel cell technology: cost and complexity.

The company has developed proprietary technology to help address different constraints, with the aim of creating energy dense fuel cells that can be produced at a scale and cost to competitively meet global demand across mobile and stationary applications and proposes a fuel cell technology that is characterised by high efficiency and a radical reduction in production costs.

Atawey, on the other hand, is focused on the mobility market with its hydrogen station developments. Based in France, the company has been a designer and manufacturer of hydrogen stations for nearly a decade and will this year launch its latest technology.

Having been accepted for the Hyaccelerator programme, the duo will now undertake a six-month acceleration program that will lead to the development, together with Snam, for their first industrial deployments.
