Elogen announces that the town of Vendôme, in the Centre-Val de Loire region, has been chosen to host its future electrolyser production plant (“gigafactory”).
Following the announcement made by the Minister of Economy, Finance and the Minister of Ecological Transition, Elogen, a company of the GTT group and French leader in PEM electrolysis technology, announces that the town of Vendôme, in the Centre-Val de Loire region, has been chosen to host its future electrolyser production plant (“gigafactory”). Elogen has been developing a gigafactory project for several months, with the aim of producing high-capacity stacks there from 2025.
The project developed by Elogen is one of the 15 files pre-notified by the French Government to the European Commission as part of the IPCEI for hydrogen, the investigation of which is still in progress by the European Commission.
If the project were to be selected as part of the IPCEI, Elogen’s electrolysis stack production capacity would reach more than 1 GW by 2030.
As part of this project, the company will also increase its presence in Greater Paris (Ile-de-France) with the strengthening of its R&D at its site in Les Ulis, close to the technological and scientific cluster of Paris-Saclay. Elogen will articulate its R&D developments around, in particular, the design of high-power stacks as well as new membranes, in partnership with European academic and industrial players.
