The energy provider Engie has fitted a fleet of 50 Kangoo Z.E. with fuel cell range extenders from Symbio, in Rungis, near Paris, for their employees. A hydrogen fuel station was also installed at the location.
Technicians from the company will be using the vehicles in future for external jobs on a daily basis. Generally, they have to remain mobile in the whole of the Ile-de-France region, in order to do maintenance and installation work on commercial enterprises.
The hydrogen fuel station has a starting capacity of 20 kg of H2 per day, which will be upgraded to 80 kg per day before long. The energy company is also planning on producing their own hydrogen for the fueling station. In order to regeneratively produce hydrogen, the required electrolyser will be only be fed with renewable energy. The project is funded by the EU Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU).
