Forvia wins a new contract in North America

The French equipment manufacturer has announced that it has won a contract from a major player in sustainable energy to supply hydrogen storage systems for heavy commercial vehicles in the North American market. Production is due to start in 2025.

The group formed by the merger of Faurecia and Hella had already won a contract with a car manufacturer a few weeks ago. This time, it is with a sustainable energy player, again in the field of mobility. “Securing this second business award reflects FORVIA’s momentum in hydrogen mobility in the North American market. It is a testament to our global presence and the strength of our strategic approach in this region. Our team has worked diligently to achieve this milestone and we are excited about the opportunity to provide our best-in-class hydrogen storage solutions to our growing customer base,” declared Patrick Koller, Forvia’s CEO.

Underlining the dynamism of the American market, the equipment manufacturer also points out that it is a shareholder in Symbio. And the Symbio North America subsidiary has achieved notable successes in the field of sustainable transport over the past two years, notably with the Symbio H2 Central Valley Express project, a hydrogen-powered heavy goods vehicle demonstrator. In addition, in May 2023, Symbio inaugurated a hydrogen vehicle fuel system assembly centre in Temecula, California, to produce next-generation fuel cell systems.
