Elogen, a technological expert at the service of green hydrogen, develops cutting-edge technologies to design and produce PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) electrolysers to meet new uses of hydrogen in mobility, industry and energy storage. Elogen, a company of the GTT group, relies on a powerful R&D and a rigorous manufacturing process to provide its customers with competitive, reliable systems tailored to their needs. The technological solutions developed by Elogen, particularly suitable for renewable energies, demonstrate high efficiency and performance.

Interview with Jean-Baptiste Choimet, Managing Director of Elogen.

Easy Engineering: What are the main areas of activity of the company?

Jean-Baptiste Choimet: We design and manufactures electrolysers. For solutions up to around 20 MW, we offer containerized solutions. Above that size, we develop tailor-made solutions with EPC companies.

Our systems deliver pressurized oxygen and hydrogen (30 bar) and we ensure the level of purity of the latter is adequate for any application.

Therefore, our electrolysers can be used for any usage: mobility, power-to-gas, power-to-power and industry.

From a standard base, we tailor our solutions to meet specific needs.

E.E: What’s the news about new products?

J.B.C: As a technology company, we keep investing in R&D to develop more competitive and more efficient stacks and electrolysers.

Meanwhile, the size of our systems keep increasing: we were recently awarded an order for a 10 MW electrolyser that will be installed in Germany in 2024.

We are also working hard to enter the offshore market: we are convinced that electrolysis will be a key asset to compensate the intermittency of offshore renewable power. Recently, we were awarded an order from Shell and Eneco for a 2.5 MW electrolyser that will be installed offshore the Netherlands.

E.E: What are the ranges of products?

J.B.C: We offer containerized solutions from 1 MW up to around 20 MW.

Above that size, we collaborate with EPC companies to design tailor-made and competitive solutions.

E.E: At what stage is the market where you are currently active?

J.B.C: The hydrogen economy has been booming for the last couple of years. There are still many challenges to overcome, moving to very large electrolysis systems and mass production in giga factories. These are the challenges we put all our energy in addressing with smart and fit-for-purpose solutions. 

E.E: What can you tell us about market trends?

J.B.C: We see an acceleration of interests from customers in 2023, with projects getting bigger and industry players looking at decarbonizing their processes. 

E.E: What are the most innovative products marketed?

J.B.C: Today, we propose a modular 5 MW system that can be easily scaled-up for larger systems. We are also able to offer electrolysers that are suitable for offshore applications.

But we are working on a lot more innovations: stay tuned!
