The Assystem – Antea Group consortium signs a contract with HAROPA Ports of Paris to develop hydrogen in river transport
The Assystem and Antea Group teams have just won a Hydrogen project management assistance contract with HAROPA Ports of Paris. This contract is part of the European ”Interreg H2-SHIPS” project for the decarbonisation of river transport.
The experts from Assystem and Antea Group will study optimal and safe hydrogen refuelling solutions for the propulsion of all types of boats at the HAROPA Ports of Paris facilities in the Ile de France region. The studies will focus on the implementation of a regulatory framework allowing the development of a hydrogen refuelling activity, carrying out opportunity and feasibility studies to identify potential refuelling sites and modes, and evaluating hydrogen transport and distribution logistics.
Assystem will draw on its experience in the development of hydrogen applied to transport, supported by Antea Group’s expert regulatory approach and feedback on hydrogen exploitation.
“This mission reinforces Assystem’s contribution to the development of hydrogen in transport, alongside the missions we are already carrying out for the SNCF’s hydrogen train programme, or for various local authorities wishing to convert all or part of their bus fleets to hydrogen. The combination of our skills in the transport sector, in industrial infrastructures as well as in chemicals, safety and security, allows us to be a committed player in the development of hydrogen” says Thomas Branche, SVP Energy Transition & Infrastructures Assystem.
Pascal Voyeau, Managing Director of Antea France adds: “Our skills in the field of regulatory framework as well as our technical expertise in the water and renewable energy sectors, which are essential for green hydrogen production projects, complete the group’s assets to support HAROPA Ports of Paris in this innovative project“.
