McPhy signed an agreement with Ivys Energy Solutions, a partner who initiated the development of SimpleFuel hydrogen fueling stations. The agreement will enable McPhy to exclusively develop the sale of SimpleFuel in Europe. This all-in-one station includes the production, compression, storage and distribution of hydrogen for mobility purposes.
SimpleFuel was certified by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Fire Protection Association. It will be adapted to match European standards and norms. Fueling stations will be produced in San Miniato, Italy and delivery is expected to commence during the second semester of 2017.
In January, McPhy and SimpleFuel consortium partners won the one million dollar prize offered by the H2 Refuel H-Prize competition, which is organized by the DOE. The prototype used for the competition was successfully tested from September to December 2016.
