By Jim Gibbins - 27th July 2022

France – Automotive components supplier,  Faurecia SE of Nanterre, France (a Forvia Group company following the acquisition of Hella on January 31, 2022), has announced that in collaboration with global hydrogen storage and transportation logistics specialist, AIR FLOW France SAS of Rousset, France, has been awarded a contract to supply high-capacity hydrogen storage containers for refilling stations in the Zero Emission Valley (ZEV*) project as co-ordinated by the HYmpulsion** consortium. The ZEV project aims to deploy, before the end of 2024, 1,200 fuel cell vehicles and 20 hydrogen stations, several equipped with electrolyzers to produce hydrogen from renewable electricity without emitting CO2.

Faurecia will leverage its advanced gas storage system competencies and its industrialization knowledge to provide tailor-made large, lightweight tanks with increased storage capacity. The lightweight storage systems require less fuel for transportation, thus lowering their CO2 footprint.
