Gaya : an all-inclusive hydrogen offer for the handling market

Gaya, the Marseille-based start-up, is one of the 53 winners* of the 9th wave of the i-Nov section of the French government’s innovation competition. It has developed a solution to convert and power with hydrogen handling vehicles.

The project ‘HYPHOS global’ aims to decarbonise container handling in the port of Fos-Sur-Mer (South-Eastern France). To do so, Gaya markets a turnkey offer integrating the transformation of handling equipment from diesel to Hybrid/Hydrogen and the supply of renewable hydrogen produced on the client’s site. The start-up has in fact two businesses: retrofitting equipment and developing hydrogen production sites.

Gaya is currently developing two prototypes, which it is supporting with a hydrogen refuelling station and on-site electric recharging for handling operators. Gaya has already made preliminary commercial commitments to deploy 20 machines on site.

*These winners are supported by France 2030 for a total amount of €56.3 million (about $62.2 million), in four areas: Digital technology; Health; Transport, mobility, cities and sustainable buildings; Energy, resources and natural environments.

After an unusual career (3 years in the French army followed by a 3-year degree in Applied Foreign Languages), it was my passion for environmental issues that finally caught up with me and led me to join Seiya Consulting and H2 Today in June 2022. First as an end-of-study internship, then as Marketing & Communication Manager and translator at Hydrogen Today.
