In conjunction with our African footprint, our expertise in technologies enables us to open new hydrogen corridors, supporting local and international initiatives while acting as a system integrator along the entire hydrogen value chain. Due to our expertise in regulatory certification and consulting engineering, we are well positioned to address hydrogen investments and projects, as well as to offer new opportunities in regions with abundant energy resources.”
