Protium Green Solutions is set to expand its national footprint with the opening of Protium Wales that will see further hydrogen expansion into the country and the scale up Welsh hydrogen projects to over £100m ($138m) by 2024.
With the recent growth that Protium has experienced in the previous number of years and, with its expansion into Scotland, Wales has been identified has the next progressive step to expand operations.
This will support hydrogen energy projects for businesses supporting the transition to low emission technology with Protium to be at the forefront of its decision-making.
Coupled with increased green hydrogen support from the Welsh Government, the region has been identified as a viable strategic opportunity for the London-headquartered group.
Protium, which has an increasing project pipeline totalling more than £1bn ($1.4bn) CAPEX, will be able to serve Welsh-based clients out of its Caerphilly office which plans to expand the headcount from its existing six-strong team to create more jobs and economic opportunities in the region.
The Caerphilly office hopes to scale up Welsh projects to more than £100m ($138m) by 2024.
Dr. Jenifer Baxter, Head of Protium Wales and Director of Innovation and Policy, will spearhead the team, bringing with her notable industry expertise as a member of the board for Industry Wales and member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
Dr. Jenifer Baxter said, “I am delighted to be supporting Protium’s strategic growth plans by spearheading the team in Wales, an evolution that marks a notable moment for our growth.
“Wales is an incredibly exciting, important region with a positive appetite for innovation solutions like green hydrogen, and I look forward to working with the local community and wider team to deliver meaningful change.”
Chris Jackson, CEO of Protium, said, “As Protium’s Founder I am extremely excited by our move into Wales, a critical region to the energy transition.
