Faurecia announced the creation of a global center of expertise for hydrogen storage systems at its R&D center in Bavans, France. Faurecia aims to invest in research and development in new-generation high-pressure tanks that are more efficient and lighter, as well as in a test center to characterize these tanks. The center, scheduled to start operations in the second-quarter 2020, represents a total investment of approximatively EUR 25 million, including EUR 4.9 million in subsidies from the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region. In the long term, Faurecia plans to create 50 highly qualified jobs at the Bavans site, which already has nearly 750 employees dedicated to Faurecia’s Clean Mobility activity.

Christophe Schmitt, Executive Vice-President of Faurecia Clean Mobility, said “The creation of our hydrogen tank centre of expertise in France is a key step forward in Faurecia’s strategy to become a global leader in fuel cell systems. Perfectly adapted to commercial and heavy goods vehicles, this technology will play an important role in zero emission mobility. I would like to thank the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region and its President Ms Dufay for their trust and support in this project.”
