zepp.solutions secures grant to build fuel cell systems factory in the Netherlands

Dutch fuel cell company zepp.solutions has secured a €1.98 million grant from the European Just Transition Fund for the development of an advanced fuel cell systems factory. The facility is set to be established in the Greater Rijnmond region in the Netherlands.

The new factory will be dedicated to the production of zepp’s Y50 and X150 fully integrated hydrogen fuel cell modules. These fuel cell modules transform hydrogen gas into usable high-voltage electric power to drive vehicles, vessels or other heavy machinery. Current applications include the Rotterdam Watertaxi, excavators for construction as well as a 67-meter long inland shipping vessel. The first two semi-trucks featuring zepp’s fuel cell systems will hit the roads later this year.

“We are thrilled and proud to receive this significant grant from the Just Transition Fund,” said Jonas Brendelberger, co-founder of zepp.solutions. “This is an important step towards establishing a new state-of-the-art production facility for our fuel cell systems. It will allow us to further accelerate our technology and scale up the production and deployment of these hydrogen systems in the next few years.”
