Faurecia creates in france its global center of expertise dedicated to hydrogen tanks
Faurecia is announcing the creation of a global center of expertise for hydrogen storage systems at its research and development center in Bavans, France.
Faurecia aims to invest in research and development in new-generation high-pressure tanks that are more efficient and lighter, as well as in a test center to characterize these tanks.
The center, scheduled to start operations in the second-quarter 2020, represents a total investment of approximatively €25 million, including €4.9 million in subsidies from the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region.
In the long term, Faurecia plans to create 50 highly qualified jobs at the Bavans site, which already has nearly 750 employees dedicated to Faurecia’s "clean" mobility activity.
