HRS, a leading European manufacturer of hydrogen refueling stations and expert in industrial piping

Since it was founded in 2004, the French company Hydrogen Refueling Solutions (HRS), previously known as TSM, has provided hydrogen refueling station solutions for every type of vehicles (captive fleets, trucks, buses, passenger cars, ...) for the mobility, industrial, storage and energy markets.

HRS was born from an ambition to guarantee permanent access to a promising source of energy, with a long-term vision to decarbonise transport and, more broadly our societies.

HRS's vision and ambition

Speeding up the energy transition

By relying on TSM's expertise in industrial piping and hydrogen station manufacturing, HRS quickly had access to a decisive competitive advantage, allowing the company to grow to become a European market leader in hydrogen stations for mobility.

This recognised expertise enabled us to conduct one of the most successful IPOs ever recorded on EuroNext Growth in February 2021, and to start building our new factory in France.

This industrial site centre has made HRS the number one manufacturer of hydrogen stations in Europe. This factory has enabled HRS to scale up its manufacture of high-capacity stations, which are in high demand from manufacturers and users, and key to the deployment of hydrogen mobility.

Our commitments

Our products are designed with the environment in mind.
As an employer, we are committed to prioritising the working environment and, as a company, to cooperating and accelerating the development of our sector.

Stations at the heart of hydrogen mobility

In the development of low-carbon mobility for the energy transition, hydrogen plays a complementary role to that of the battery.

Fuel cell electric vehicles (i.e. hydrogen powered vehicles) are perfectly suited for high or intensive usage, transportation of heavy goods, a long range and/or fast refueling.

Implementing hydrogen mobility involves the simultaneous development of stations and vehicles to avoid the "chicken-and-egg” paradox, putting stations at the forefront of the hydrogen mobility value chain.

Expertise to ramp up our development

From the construction of a new, unique production and R&D centre in Europe to implementing strategic partnerships, strengthening our teams' skills, and maintaining the trust of our existing clients, HRS has all the expertise to guarantee sound development.
