Hopium begins assembling its 100 kW fuel cells

In line with its business plan, Hopium began assembling the stacks (bipolar plates and membranes) for its 100 kW fuel cells today.

The start-up describes this as an “important milestone”, and is delighted with the “confidence shown in the company and its solutions by Hopium’s key suppliers”. The company is therefore on schedule with its development plans, as announced during its webinar on 25 April. After months of work, we have received the components we need to start assembling the fuel cells for our hydrogen solutions. I would like to thank our long-standing suppliers for their rapid deliveries, which enable us to calmly confirm our roadmap for the coming months,” says Stéphane Rabatel, Hopium CEO.

According to the schedule, test bench trials (in a controlled environment) are scheduled for July, followed by real-conditions trials (on a track) in the Autumn, with market launch in early 2025.

“A new horizon is opening up for our company and for heavy goods transport as a whole. We are convinced that our fuel cells represent a major advance for the various applications of heavy transport, offering a credible alternative to traditional combustion engines,” added Rabatel.
