Our collaborative research and development centre

Located at the heart of our industrial site near Grenoble, the company has a centre fully dedicated to R&D for hydrogen mobility. This structure enables HRS to invite its partners in order to work together on improving station performance and rolling them out on a large scale.

Serving as a catalyst for the hydrogen sector

Our team of expert hydrogen engineers has developed a dedicated hydrogen station for testing improvements in performance and energy optimisation.

We invite our partners to use this zone to test their hydrogen technology, because we believe that it's only by sharing expertise among players in the sector that we will be able to accelerate the deployment of hydrogen, together.

Our partner testimonials

HRS stations tested on site

Using product qualification plans, our teams determine the tests to be conducted on each product to ensure their operation and guarantee an optimal quality level.

The development projects in the test zone and the opportunities for development and innovation offered by a zone of this kind convinced me to join the team. I am responsible for checking the various functions and the conformity of our products, both finished and under development, and for ensuring the technical reliability and safety of our equipment, process and products.

Expertise to support the hydrogen sector

Involved in large-scale projects throughout Europe, our design office draws on its unique expertise in H2 stations to take innovation in hydrogen mobility to a new level.

The RHEADHY1 and H2REF-DEMO2 projects received funding from the Clean Hydrogen Partnership under grant agreement no. 101101443 (1) and no. 101101517 (2), with backing from the European Union's Horizon Europe research and innovation programme.


RHeaDHy for very high flow refueling of heavy-duty mobility

HRS is one of eight partners involved in the European RHeaDHy project dedicated to developing very high flow refueling to optimise refueling of heavy-duty vehicles and achieve a fivefold reduction in the refueling time, equivalent to 10 minutes for a 100 kg tank of H2 at 700 bar.

Tests on refueling at very high flow rates will be conducted at the HRS R&D centre as part of the European project.

H2REF-DEMO for stations with a higher compression capacity

The stakeholders in the H2REF-DEMO project are focused on increasing the compression capacity of stations to achieve 150 kg H2/hour, as well as optimising costs and processes, and reducing energy consumption.

Following a development phase, the test zone will be used for large-scale testing of the high-capacity compression module to green-light its commercial launch to hydrogen heavy-duty vehicle operators.
