This is Hexagon Purus’ third opening of a new manufacturing facility this year, following the successful openings of the manufacturing facility for battery systems in Kelowna, Canada in April and the hydrogen cylinder manufacturing facility in Westminster, Maryland, US in January.
The new facility in Kassel can support annual production of more than 40 000 type 4 high-pressure hydrogen cylinders for fuel cell electric mobility and hydrogen infrastructure applications. The new facility will employ up to 300 skilled workers and significantly increase Hexagon Purus’ current hydrogen cylinder manufacturing capacity. The current footprint of the facility also allows for further expansion since the building can accommodate additional production lines as demand for hydrogen storage applications continues to grow.
“We are very excited to announce the opening of our new greenfield site in Kassel. This will play a central role in further developing Hexagon Purus as a manufacturer of safe and reliable hydrogen cylinders. With this facility, we have the necessary capacity to meet the rapidly growing demand for our hydrogen infrastructure and mobility applications”, says Michael Kleschinski, EVP at Hexagon Purus. “We believe the demand for our offerings will continue to increase, and we now have the footprint to support future customer growth”.
With the opening of the new hydrogen cylinder manufacturing hub in Kassel, Hexagon Purus is relocating its current hydrogen cylinder manufacturing from its former site in Kassel that was shared with Hexagon Composites.
