Products: bio-methanol, oxygen and green hydrogen.

Founded in 2019 in Aix en Provence is 100% owned by Hy2gen AG. Its business purpose is to develop and produce green hydrogen and green fuels for the European market. Hy2gen France SAS produces green hydrogen by means of alkaline electrolysis, polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) or pyrolysis.

Being located in the south of France means being able to supply the mobility and maritime sector in the Mediterranean area. It is an ideal location for establishing the production of green hydrogen. The central and local governments are strongly committed to the reduction of greenhouse gases by supporting hydrogen business, carbon free mobility and carbon reduction in the industrial sector.









I’m not concerned with what has been done.
I’m interested in what needs to be done.“

– Marie Curie (1867-1934)



Hydrogen provides the most flexible solution to replace fossil-based solutions in the maritime sector, especially as weight and range are important factors. Mediterianen Harbors have determined to take a pioneering position in supplying hydrogen-based solutions for CO2 free operations.


Road transportation requires to be decarbonized and French major cities already took decision to decrease the transportation CO2 emission. Hydrogen has a role to play in the heavy duty mobility as well as the interconnection with other areas/countries and the capacity of the French Regions in terms of renewable energy production means that hydrogen is a focus.

Combining maritime, industry and mobility needs will enable to create a complete network centred on local large scale green hydrogen production facilities and multimodal distribution.



In order to develop projects in local territories such as the French Mediterranean area, local SPVs will be created.
In the south of France, Hy2gen Med SAS will be created as a subsidiary of Hy2gen France, to support the development of local projects such as:



In collaboration with a photovoltaic developer OXYGN and the Photovoltaic operator, SOLARCENTURY,  HY2GEN FRANCE plans to build a 30 MW electrolysis plant in the region Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, to supply green electricity via a direct purchase agreement (DPA).

This initiative makes direct and more global use of solar energy and local renewable energies sourced through the electricity grid available for the production of green hydrogen in an industrial scale. This enables a competitive price for hydrogen, which can be marketed for land and sea mobility and, in the long term, a smart grid function: the possibility of storage to supplement the grid.”

Groundbreaking Ceremony scheduled in December 2022, Start of operation first units in Q1 2024 and ramp up to scheduled capacity until Q4 2025 –

Construction of a renewable aviation fuel (E-Kerosene) production platform consisting of:

– biomass gasification unit of 250 tons/day of wood;
– 100MW water electrolysis plant;
– E-Kerosene synthesis process.
– E-Methanol synthesis process.

The electrolysis unit, powered by local green electricity to produce green hydrogen (H2) which, combined with syngas (CO/H2) from gasification, will enable the production of E-Kerosene on an industrial scale compatible with the decarbonisation challenges of the aviation sector.


Electrolysis: 100 MW
Renewable power: 835.000 MWh/year
Biomass feedstock: 250 tons/day
SAF production: 100.000 liters/day
Biomethanol prod.: 100.000 liters/day

– Operation to begin in 2027 –
