Hydrogen arrives in Rungis market, France

07/06/2018

Located in the heart of the International Market of Rungis, this station will power a fleet of 50 hydrogen-powered Renault Kangoo Z.E. utility vehicles, recently made available for long-term rental through Alphabet, a leader in mobility solutions for enterprises. These vehicles will be used by ENGIE Cofely technicians to ensure multi-technical operations and maintenance work for commercial buildings in the Ile-de-France.

Equipped with extended autonomous capability by Symbio, the leading European outfitter for hydrogen mobility solutions, these electric vehicles produce neither particles nor gas emissions and are further enhanced with a reduced recharge time and greater autonomy.

This station has a provisional refueling capacity of 20 kg/day in hydrogen but should increase rapidly to 80 kg/day. This scale corresponds to the immediate needs of current vehicles in the south of Paris. The definitive installation will produce hydrogen on site with an electrolyser powered solely by renewable energy. The hydrogen station is designed, manufactured and integrated by McPhy, a leader in production, storage and hydrogen distribution equipment that serves the energy transition.
The entire project has been given financial support from the European Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU).
