H-Tec Systems and Groupe E on Tuesday (April 12) said they have joined forces to develop the site that will help the decarbonisation of freight transportation.

To produce the green hydrogen, two H-Tec Systems ME450/1400 PEM electrolysers will produce the energy carrier from hydropower at the Schiffenen Dam, located in the canton of Fribourg.

On the plans, Urs Kröpfli, Project Manager of Groupe E, said, “With this project we are entering new territory.

“The constructive, open, and transparent communication with H-Tec Systems as well as their experience with their own efficient PEM electrolysers gives us confidence in the upcoming implementation phase.”

The project is believed to be the first of its type in Western Switzerland.
