Monnoyeur Group subsidiary Eneria will industrialise a hydrogen power generator developed by Energy Observer Developments (EODev) as part of a new innovative partnership.
Specialised in the design, installation and maintenance of turnkey power generation solutions, Eneria will bring EODev its expertise and know-how in the field of solution packaging.
The industrial partnership between the two will accelerate the industrialisation, deployment and after-sales service management of EODev’s GEH2 generators.
For Eneria, this development is part of a broader ambition: providing real solutions to both energy and environmental challenges, commensurate with the issues reminded by the government in the context of the green recovery plan.

“The GEH2 is the answer to tomorrow’s energy needs, paving the way for the supply of totally decarbonised energy, in harmony with nature,” said Jérémie Lagarrigue, CEO of EODev.
“We are proud and happy to be able to rely on strong partnerships, such as the one we have sealed with Eneria, to accelerate the energy transition.”
Heric Blain, CEO of Eneria, added, “This is a major partnership that will allow us to mobilise our management, with its historic know-how in packaging innovative energy solutions, and our technical resources such as our workshops and test beds to industrialise the GEH2.”
Eco high-tech innovation
Designed around Toyota’s latest generation fuel cell, the GEH2 has undergone months of development and intensive testing.
EODev said with its record energy density, a modular solution allowing to get, now, a hydrogen power generator at an affordable cost.
Each GEH2 has a prime running power of 100kVA and an emergency stand-by power of 110kVA for one hour, with an output voltage of 230/400V at 50Hz.
Thanks to its double hydrogen adduction, the GEH2 operates continuously, as you can switch to the second supply circuit while in operation thus allowing the hydrogen cylinder to be replaced without interrupting electricity production. Finally, no minimum operating power is required.
The GEH2 offers many advantages over equivalent diesel units. In addition to its low noise pollution and the total absence of CO2 and fine particle emissions, its compact design allows four stackable units to be transported in 20-foot containers and to be easily moved by forklift trucks.
With its IP43 ingress protection and its integrated 230V plug for frost protection, it can operate in almost every corner of the world, from -5°C to +45°C.
Its instant start allows to get full power immediately, and its “time 0” response make it independent of the UPS; all these features being integrated with its cooling circuit and fan.
Connected and monitored, the GEH2 can be controlled remotely with an optional remote interface.
Running exclusively on hydrogen and its fuel cell having no moving parts, usually contributing to engine wear and clogging (in traditional generators), the GEH2 has a much longer life span than diesel generating sets thanks also to its design and the predictive maintenance that will be provided by EODev’s teams.
Eco-designed, the GEH2 includes an aluminium frame, easily recyclable, and an outer casing made of sustainably produced bamboo fibres, both resistant and natural.
