For the second consecutive year, HYVIA, the JV between Renault Group and Plug Power for  hydrogen mobility, will be at the  HyVolution tradeshow, a growing event for hydrogen professionals in France and Europe.

At the Paris Event Center  11-12 May HYVIA will show  a large light commercial hydrogen vehicle: Master Chassis Cab H2-TECH, created for custom van conversions with a 20-cubic-meter large volume. (AutoInformed on: France – HYVIA JV Unveils First Hydrogen Prototype)

HYVIA is preparing a portfolio of three hydrogen powered light commercial vehicles: a van, a chassis cab and a city bus, with a range of up to 500 km, as well as a complete ecosystem of H2 stations, H2 production and associated services.

The first vehicles are expected to be on the road from mid-2022. With a payload of up to 1000 kg, Master Chassis Cab H2-TECH is equipped with a 30-kW fuel cell, a 33-kWh battery and tanks containing 3 kg of hydrogen (2 tanks of 1.5 kg) at 700 bars.

The HYVIA plant in Flins launched on March 15, 2022, assembles and tests these 30 kW fuel cells. Based on advanced Plug Power technology, the power of the fuel cells offered by HYVIA will be adjustable according to usages. At the end of 2022, the plant will also start the assembly of H2 refueling stations and the production of hydrogen with a first 1 MW electrolyzer.

In addition to hydrogen vehicles, HYVIA plans to offer extensive services: H2 refueling stations, production of de-carbonated hydrogen, maintenance, and so-called fleet management solutions. Plug Power has installed several PEM technology electrolyzers in Germany, France, The Netherlands, and Portugal. The company has deployed more fuel cell systems for electro-mobility than anyone else in the world.
