GenH2 Establishes Titusville, Florida, Global Headquarters
The property will undergo a $35 million renovation and build-out to accommodate GenH2's needs as the hydrogen economy continues to grow exponentially, according to company officials. The new campus will encompass an advanced research lab, light manufacturing center, educational and training classrooms for community engagement, an observation deck and outdoor walking trails, in addition to offices and conference rooms for employees.
“Our foundation and history go back to this area where many of our employees had been contractors or employees at NASA," said CEO Cody Bateman. "This is an ideal location for us, where we are confident that we can hire the work-force we need and where we are proud to have the support of the City of Titusville, Brevard County and the State of Florida."
The Titusville global headquarters will join GenH2 facilities in Texas, New Mexico, and other locations around the country where the company is building a footprint.
"The hydrogen economy is taking off faster than anyone anticipated, and is reaching a 'tipping point,'" Bateman added. "Aggressive milestones both nationally and globally are pushing growth across the landscape. In order to meet market demands, we intend to be fully operational and producing our liquid hydrogen and filling stations by 2023."
Liquid hydrogen has a long legacy within the space industry. However, hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles are also gradually gaining a foothold in the automobile market, company officials noted. According to data compiled by the California Fuel Cell Partnership, 11,187 hydrogen fuel cell cars have been sold and leased in the U.S. There are also 48 hydrogen fuel cell buses currently in operation in the Golden State.
