Alstom is pursuing its strategy of sustainable development and innovation with the acquisition of Helion Hydrogen Power, a subsidiary of AREVA Energies Renouvelables.
The acquisition will help support Alstom’s innovation in hydrogen technology for the railway sector, extending its portfolio of solutions and the implementation of its Alstom in Motion strategic plan. It also strengthens its technological footprint in France and its local presence in the region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, in addition to its current sites in Aix-en-Provence and Vitrolles.
Helion Hydrogen Power employs nearly 30 experienced, multidisciplinary staff at its site in Aix-en-Provence. The company covers the entire value chain of high-power fuel cells: design, development, manufacturing, engineering support, and customer training. Today, it focuses mainly on the energy and transport markets, in France and abroad. Helion Hydrogen Power has been involved in more than 100 projects and some 30 of its solutions are in operation worldwide.
Following the completion of the transaction, which took place on April 1, the company, renamed Alstom Hydrogène S.A.S., will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Alstom.
