A place of emergence and deployment of the hydrogen sector in France, the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region and its players make the H2 energy transition visible.
The hydrogen platform (FCLAB, FEMTO-ST) tour
The hydrogen platform (FCLAB, FEMTO-ST) tour gives you the opportunity to visit our facilities. The platform hosts 600m2 of equipments and testbench dedicated to the test of hydrogen components and systems. It has also the ability to reproduce indoor some environmental constraints like temperature and vibrations. It is also involved in the design and realization of prototypes.
Presentation of Grand Belfort’s future hydrogen production and distribution station and the RTTB maintenance centre
At the end of 2021, Greater Belfort decided to equip itself with a renewable hydrogen production and distribution station to develop clean mobility on its territory, in Danjoutin.
The station, developed by Hynamics, a subsidiary of the EDF Group, will produce renewable hydrogen (100% of the electricity used to power the station will be of renewable origin), emitting neither CO2 nor fine particles. Equipped with a 1 MW McPhy electrolyser, the station will have a production capacity of 400 kg of hydrogen per day.
It will be used to fuel the first 7 hydrogen-powered buses operated by the Régie des Transports du Territoire de Belfort (RTTB) on behalf of the SMTC, on the Optymo urban transport network, as well as other private or public vehicles, and industrial and university vehicles in the area.
The entry into service of 7 hydrogen-powered buses operated by the Régie des Transports du Territoire de Belfort (RTTB) on behalf of the SMTC, on the Optymo urban transport network, involved major changes to the maintenance workshop located in Danjoutin.
Adapting a building dating from the 1980s to the risks associated with hydrogen mobility involved upgrading the existing safety systems and installing new ones.
The aim of the visit is to explain the thinking that went into the project and the choices made to arrive at the current building.
