McPhy to launch its gigafactory in Belfort

The long-awaited electrolysers plant has finally been approved by Europe under the framework of the IPCEI Hy2Tech and is to be installed in the Aeroparc of Fontaine, close to Belfort.

The installation of McPhy came true when the purchase act for the land at the Aeroparc was signed in Fontaine, close to Belfort on September 16. This 8-hectare parcel of land is worth €800,000 (about $803,000) and the investment dedicated to the plant is over €30 million (about $30 million).

This “gigafactory” specializing in the production of electrolysers, which are used to obtain green hydrogen from water electrolysis, will be operational in 2024. Eventually, 450 new jobs will be created in Grand Belfort for the hydrogen industry.

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.
