The founding stone has been laid for Sunrhyse in the Var department

The foundation stone for a green hydrogen production plant has been laid in the French city of Signes by the Hy2Gen group. The latter is already present in Germany, Norway and Canada and it has a subsidiary in France.

This project is part of the Hynovar ecosystem, launched in 2016 by the Var Chamber of Commerce and Industry to outline and deploy a hydrogen industry in the department.

Sunrhyse will be the group’s first production unit in France. The objectives: producing on an industrial scale to optimise costs, volumes and a logistics adapted to changing needs. The production unit will have a minimal property footprint and will be carefully integrated into its natural environment. The works will be spread over the 2023-2024 period, with production scheduled to start in the summer of 2024.

Through its subsidiary Sunrhyse, which aims to be a pioneer in green hydrogen in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region, the Hy2gen group (which was created in 2017 in Germany) is becoming a partner in the Var ecosystem.

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.
