Hydrogène de France (HDF Energy), leading developer of large-scale green hydrogen infrastructure and high-power fuel cell manufacturer , is taking a significant stake alongside CLYD, a naval architect, in the new company HYNAVAL. The two companies are combining their expertise to design hydrogen-powered boats and retrofit existing boats to hydrogen propulsion.
HYNAVAL, located within the Bordeaux port area, will have a dedicated facility for its activities. On this site, HYNAVAL will operate a shipyard specializing in the design, manufacture, and retrofit of hydrogen-powered boats, providing an emissions-free alternative. This collaboration will merge CLYD’s naval architecture expertise with HDF Energy’s mastery in the hydrogen domain.
With ten years of experience across the hydrogen value chain, HDF Energy will leverage its know-how in hydrogen infrastructure development. This strategic alliance solidifies the company’s position as a designer and producer of high-power fuel cells for maritime mobility, in addition to its applications in the railway sector and hydrogen power plants.
Established in Bordeaux since 2010, the CLYD group is a pioneer and expert in naval architecture, engineering and yacht retrofitting.
