H-TEC SYSTEMS and Groupe E will implement the first hydrogen project in Western Switzerland utilising  two H-TEC SYSTEMS ME450/1400 PEM electrolysers to produce green hydrogen from hydropower at the Schiffenen Dam.

Starting in 2023, approximately 300 tons of green hydrogen will be produced by the project annually, which will be used primarily for the decarbonisation of freight transport.

The production plant at the Schiffenen Dam is located in the canton of Fribourg and is the first plant of its kind in western Switzerland. The two PEM electrolysers will be supplied with more than two megawatts of green energy from a rotary turbine at the dam. The location of the production plant near the A12 and A1 freeways is ideal for delivering the hydrogen to nearby refuelling stations. With the help of tanker trucks, the hydrogen will be transported by road to the stations.

Energy supplier Groupe E is launching a pilot project with the PEM electrolysers and has found an experienced partner in H-TEC SYSTEMS.

“With this project we are entering new territory” said Urs Kröpfli, Project Manager of Groupe E. “The constructive, open, and transparent communication with H-TEC SYSTEMS as well as their experience with their own efficient PEM electrolysers gives us confidence in the upcoming implementation phase.”
