Fives, alongside two research companies, the CEA and the École des Mines de Saint-Etienne, have announced the launch of the HyGen project.

The research and development programme aims to substantially increase the scale of the equipment necessary for the use of liquid hydrogen.

HyGen received funding of €3.4M from the French government as part of the France 2030 programme operated by ADEME and is thus fully part of the French national strategy to boost decarbonised hydrogen.

This project will contribute to the creation of 85 new jobs in the Grand-Est region where the Fives group has been established for over 120 years.

The HyGen project aims to:

  • Remove technological barriers to scale-up liquefaction equipment and multiply existing capacities by ~10.
  • Strengthen the reliability of the equipment and secure their use.
  • Contribute to improving France’s competitiveness in hydrogen and to the creation of a strong sector around liquid hydrogen.
  • Meet the growing demand for hydrogen on the global market in favour of green mobility.
