The French-based company revealed it had signed a letter of intent with Charbone to supply its PEM electrolysers up to 100MW, intended for the North American market, with a view to signing contracts no later than November 30, 2022.

H2 View understands, under the proposed contracts, Elogen will supply its electrolysers to Charbone over a four year period between 2023-2026, positioning the company to make its mark in North America.

Elogen has said, the letter of intent also provides that Charbone can ensure the assembly, and/or local manufacturing of the electrolysers and components in Canada and the US, under the supervision of Elogen.

 Jean-Baptiste Choimet, CEO of Elogen, commented, “This strategic letter of intent with Charbone paves the way for Elogen’s entry into the North American market. It is fully in line with our desire to forge partnerships with solid local players.

“We are delighted with this collaboration with Charbone, a company focused on innovation, with which we share an ambitious vision regarding the development of green hydrogen production.”

Dave Gagnon, CEO and Chairman of the Board at Charbone, said, “Charbone is pleased to sign, with Elogen, this non-binding letter of intent for the negotiation of a multi-year supply framework agreement.

“Elogen’s combined strengths in membrane technologies, backed by several patents, and its expertise in engineering, production and maintenance will allow Charbone to have access to reliable and relevant products to support its rapid development in the decarbonisation of the Canadian and North American economy.”

Most recently, Charbone revealed plans to establish a green hydrogen facility in Nova Scotia Canada, on June 21, following an agreement with Port Hawkesbury Paper (PHP).

North American Hydrogen Summit  

H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.

As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.

With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?

If you are a member of the CaFCP, be sure to grab your ticket at a discounted rate with a code that can be provided to you by the events team.
