The companies revealed today (July 21) that the electrolyser will be used to produce part of the hydrogen volumes required by Symbio to test and activate its fuel cell systems at the end of the manufacturing process.

Set to be delivered to the Saint-Fons site during the fourth quarter of 2023, the Elogen electrolyser is set to be modular in design, allowing Symbio to produce up to one tonne of low carbon hydrogen each day, according to the companies.

Symbio’s flagship SymphonHy plant is anticipated to one of the largest hydrogen fuel cell manufacturing sites in Europe, with an eventual production capacity of 50,000 systems annually.

Phillippe Rosier, CEO of Symbio, commented, “With this electrolyser in situ at our Saint-Fons gigafactory, Symbio will be able to recycle the water and electricity resulting from its own production by producing part of its green hydrogen needs.”

Jean-Baptiste Choimet, Managing Director of Elogen, added, “We are delighted with the signing of this contract with Symbio. Symbio’s choice of the Elogen solution for its future high-tech plant in Saint-Fons confirms the relevance and attractiveness of the PEM technology developed by Elogen to produce green hydrogen in a modular and flexible way.

“This new contract also represents an important step for Elogen since it highlights our ability to deploy our technology on several megawatts in the service of major industrial projects.”
