First Hydrogen has selected the City of Shawinigan, Quebec, Canada to develop its first green hydrogen eco-system, having conducted site evaluations and formally commenced the process to secure and develop respective sites for local production.
First Hydrogen’s project plan is to produce up to 50 MW of green hydrogen using advanced electrolysis technology and distribute the hydrogen within the Montreal-Quebec City corridor for use with First Hydrogen’s light commercial vehicles (LCV). It will also support other hydrogen-fuelled vehicles and applications in the region.
The company’s LCVs are planned to be assembled in Shawinigan for distribution throughout North America in combination with the Company’s Hydrogen as a Service product offering. The assembly factory will be designed for an annual capacity of 25,000 vehicles per year when at full capacity and will represent a major boost to green technology jobs in the region.
