Atawey: new mobile hydrogen station to be launched

Atawey, a French company supported by EIT InnoEnergy since 2012, is launching its new mobile hydrogen station. Able to supply several heavy goods vehicles and ready to operate in only half a day, the fastest on the market, it overcomes the barriers linked to hydrogen refueling and projects set-up.

There is a momentum for hydrogen deployment at European (hydrogen roadmap in France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, United Kingdom, etc.), national and regional levels. Atawey has been designing and manufacturing green hydrogen* stations for nearly 10 years and consolidates its position as a major player in favor of carbon-free mobility.

The Atawey mobile hydrogen station: a response to a booming market

Ready to operate in only half a day, the Atawey mobile hydrogen station is designed to be set up in complete autonomy by the operator. The commissioning is simplified thanks to the process automation and intuitive control screens. The target: anytime, anywhere, hydrogen.

 

The mobile station addresses the following markets: vehicle tests and demonstrations, temporary applications on construction sites and for events, and will also serve as a temporary station (for project holders awaiting a permanent station) or as a back-up for fixed station under maintenance. This solution accelerates hydrogen mobility deployment by improving access to vehicle refueling (buses, coaches, trucks, dumpsters, vans, etc.). The Atawey mobile hydrogen station is available for pre-order today and first deliveries from April 2022.

 

The mobile station is developed and produced in the Atawey plant, based in Savoie Technolac, in Bourget-du-Lac (73), France. The company promotes local sourcing and controls the entire design, production and quality chain of its products.

 

« The development of ecosystems is a major issue for hydrogen mobility today. This development requires rapid adoption and therefore easy access to hydrogen fuel. Thanks to the Atawey mobile station, it is now possible to refuel a hydrogen vehicle anytime, anywhere. On top of facilitating access to hydrogen for vehicle testing, the Atawey mobile station paves the way for new uses such as construction sites and improves the availability of existing stations. » Jean-Michel Amaré, CEO Atawey

Technical specifications & innovation

  • Ready to operate in ½ day: the fastest set up on the market. Made possible thanks to automatic tests and resistance to transport.
  • Flexible hydrogen supply: station on trailer or on the ground, external supply by connection of frames / tube trailers or directly to a fixed hydrogen station, source hydrogen pressure from 200 to 500bar.
  • High performance options: 350 and 700 bar distribution, quick refueling (pre-cooling), battery-powered distribution

« Atawey’s ambition is to support the rise of green hydrogen in Europe. Our goal is to consolidate our positioning in France, where we currently hold 40% of the market, and to establish a strong presence in Europe. To meet our goals, we are preparing to go from 40 to 150 employees by 2025 in order to produce 150 stations in 5 years. » Jean-Michel Amaré

About Atawey

Founded in 2012 by Jean-Michel Amaré and Pierre-Jean Bonnefond, Atawey, 41 people, designs, manufactures and markets green reliable and efficient hydrogen charging stations. Since 2015, Atawey has developed a range of stations which supports the ramp-up of hydrogen projects. To accelerate the adoption of hydrogen mobility, the Atawey range enables to test hydrogen mobility with pilot projects and then to develop uses by deploying a network of stations. Atawey hydrogen refueling stations are environmentally friendly, use French technologies and provide a response for a sustainable energy transition.
