Having been in development for several months now, the site has been chosen due to its key location in supplying electrolyser systems and also to expand Elogen’s presence in the region.
The project could additionally be selected as part of the IPCEI by the European Commission if proven to be a significant programme for the hydrogen and renewable energies industries.
In being selected as part of the IPCEI, the electrolysis stack capacity could reach more than 1GW by 2030 making it a crucial technology for the European hydrogen economy.
The construction of the new stack assembly line at the Les Ulis site will boost Elogen’s production capacity to 160 stacks per year making it the largest production capacity in France at 160MW, the company has said.
Elogen has stated that its primary objective is to commercialise at least 400MW of electrolysis capacity per year by 2030 which could provide a huge boost to the hydrogen economy in Europe.
