Atawey to open its first hydrogen station outside France, in Italy

Atawey has announced that it has received an order from Techfem, a major operator in the Italian energy sector, to commission a hydrogen refuelling station in Italy in mid-2025.

This contract is the first concrete step towards Atawey’s ambition of becoming one of the top 3 European manufacturers of hydrogen refuelling stations by 2025. Techfem has been operating in the energy sector in Italy for over 40 years. The aim of the project is to produce renewable hydrogen on site, using an electrolyser powered by photovoltaic panels. This hydrogen will then be used to power buses via an upgradable Atawey station. It will also be injected into the local gas network.

“This first installation in Italy is an important step in the international expansion of our company. This project represents not only a significant growth opportunity for Atawey, but also a concrete commitment to energy transition in Europe,” says Jean-Michel Amaré, Atawey CEO.

The company also plans to open an Italian subsidiary by the end of 2024. Hydrogen is at the heart of Italy’s energy strategy, with plans to deploy 70 stations under the AFIR directive (49 in urban hubs and 21 along corridors).
