Symbio, an equal joint venture between Forvia, Michelin and Stellantis, today inaugurates its SymphonHy primagigafactory, a center of technological and industrial excellence. Located in Saint-Fons, in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, SymphonHy is the largest integrated fuel cell production site in Europe, confirming Symbio's role as a technology and industrial leader. The site includes the group's headquarters, a production facility, an innovation hub of unprecedented scale and the Symbio Hydrogen Academy. With an annual output of 50,000 fuel cell modules, SymphonHy will pave the way for large-scale production.
SymphonHy is part of HyMotive, a €1 billion strategic project for the development of innovative technology, supported by the European Union and the French government under the IPCEI (Important Project of Scientific Interest) program.
HyMotive will create 1,000 jobs over its period of operation.
Leveraging Symbio's fuel cells, Stellanti's hydrogen offering will extend beyond the midsize vans already available in Europe to include large vans, Ram pickups and heavy-duty trucks for the North American market.
