NPROXX has been recognised for the development of its carbon fibre high pressure storage vessels for gaseous hydrogen storage.
The German technology company was awarded the prestigious 2020 AC2-Innovation Prize, which is accorded to an enterprise, an institution or a person that has made an outstanding contribution to the development of the Aachen Region as a business location.
NPROXX said its storage vessels are ideally suited for vehicle production and transport solutions for the mobility of the future.
It therefore sees itself as a key player in the innovative technology sector and is currently working on expanding its manufacturing capacity.
The District Administrator of Euskirchen, Markus Ramers, presented the Innovation Prize Award to Dr. Rainer vor dem Esche, Managing Director of NPROXX.
In his laudatory speech, Ramers said, “In market analysis, hydrogen was named as one of the most important energy carriers of the future.”
“In order to convert to a sustainable energy, traffic and transportation system, there is no getting away from hydrogen.”
“NPROXX understood this. In the wake of an energy revolution and movement away from coal production, the region is on the brink of profound change.”
“The company is actively involved in bringing about this change in terms of innovation and climate protection. I wish NPROXX much success in their endeavours!”
