Stargate develops electrodes that are free from precious metals and use ceramic catalyst material for next-generation alkaline electrolyzers. On the other hand, McPhy is making strides in developing large-scale pressurized alkaline electrolyzers for the decarbonation of industry.
The sharing of knowledge and expertise is set to further strengthen the hydrogen value chain and accelerate cooperation between the two companies. It feeds into the scale-up strategy of both McPhy and Stargate, with plans for developing their industrial sites in France and Estonia.
Jean-Baptiste Lucas, CEO of McPhy, said: “This partnership with Stargate ties in perfectly with our strategy to extend our technological and industrial lead in the rapidly growing hydrogen market. Sharing the same technological and industrial challenges, this cooperation allows us to cross-fertilize our expertise to sustain the development of electrolyzers.”
Marko Virkebau, CEO of Stargate, added: “Our strategy consists of expanding by collaboration. We have already secured partnerships with several system integrations using our technology in their systems. Now, we are taking the next step by also partnering with the leading electrolyzer manufacturers interested in using our unique technology in their products. The partnership with McPhy will surely allow both parties to scale faster and bring down the cost of green hydrogen for large-scale projects.”
