In recent years, HyGear found traction in the industrial gases market with its Gas-as-a-Service business model (GaaS). In this model, the company owns and operates its proprietary gas generation and recycling technologies at end-users’ sites. Currently, this supply model is growing to become “best industry practice”. At the same time, the overall market demand for hydrogen is growing due to the increased attention to hydrogen as vehicle fuel.
With the further implementation of the GaaS business model, access to capital markets and debt financing becomes a prerequisite for delivering on HyGear’s future growth plans. Marinus van Driel: “We are delighted that Gerrit joins us at this time, as we recognize that financial expertise will be a critical success factor in the next stage of HyGear’s corporate development.”
HyGear supplies industrial gases like hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen to industrial end-users by proprietary on-site production and recycling technologies. Besides this, the company supplies hydrogen as fuel for the upcoming market in hydrogen vehicles.
By combining our advanced technologies with traditional supply methods, we guarantee the most optimal method of supply in terms of costs, reliability and environmental impact.
