next generation PEM electrolyser for sustainable hydrogen production



Hydrogen, fuel cells and energy storage

Decentralized energy production, CO2-free hydrogen production, continuous power supply, power self-sufficiency, energy storage: some key topics for the coming years to which HELION, a subsidiary of AREVA Renewable, brings its solutions.

Hydrogen energy and fuel cells
Hydrogen is a clean, efficient and storable energy carrier. The combination of this carrier with fuel cells, highly-efficient, quiet and environmental-friendly converters, meets the requirements of power generation in stationary and embedded applications.

HELION markets backup systems, educational systems and develops high-efficiency embedded systems.

Energy storage
The energy storage becomes a priority in response to intermittent renewable energy sources, the weakness or absence of power distribution networks and the high energy demand in developing countries.

HELION offers modular storage solutions with high power and energy capacity.

Industrial hydrogen
Faced with the growing consumption of hydrogen for industrial and petrochemical industries, and the need to reduce polluting emissions, hydrogen production by water electrolysis from CO2-free energy sources, nuclear and renewables, proves to be a competitive and environmental-friendly technology.

HELION develops complementary technologies in alkaline, PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) and high temperature electrolysis.
