Areva H2 Gen

AREVA H2Gen proposes a wide range of hydrogen generators that integrate all the auxiliaries required to run its electrolysers on a single platform.

All its equipment meets the highest European and International safety standards. We are also an approved supplier of leading industrial gas distribution companies.

Dedicated to providing the market with cutting-edge industrial applications, AREVA H2Gen is also a credible partner for customers in their multi MW Projects to meet hydrogen-for-mobility and renewable energy storage challenges.

Operating at the core of energy transition, AREVA H2Gen has designed an innovative technology for storing electric easily by transforming it into hydrogen. This system is now available to the clean transport and energy hydrogen storage markets.

Founded in May 2014, AREVA H2Gen is a joint venture derived from an alliance of 3 partners –

ADEME, AREVA, and SMART ENERGIES – formed to create a leading French producer of carbon-free hydrogen.

ADEME, the administrator of the French Future Investments Programme (PIA) and responsible for accelerating energy and ecological transition, As part of the future Investments Programme, supervised by the General investments commission (CGI-Commissariat Général à l’Investissement), ADEME is providing strategic funding assistance.

SMART ENERGIES included its subsidiary CETH2 (Compagnie Européenne des Techniques de l’Hydrogène), which adds 25 years of R&D experience in Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolysis.

AREVA also contributed  its electrolysis operations, along with its specialised knowledge in the field of high-pressure PEM technology.

With its construction of the production facility at Les Ulis, AREVA H2Gen is now the only manufacturer of electrolysers in France. These products  are high-tech, high value-added industrial machines that are the ideal for producing hydrogen from intermittent renewable power sources.
