The Brazilian company, based in Sumaré, São Paulo, was founded in 2003 as a spin-off from the University of Campinas and has established itself as a leading solution provider in the field of engineering and system integration for PEM and alkaline electrolysers, natural gas and ethanol reformers, among others.
HYTRON is now adding these important technology competencies to the portfolio of the NEA GROUP. NEA’s recent acquisitions and investments support the continuous development of the company from a pure system manufacturer to a diversified full solution provider.
Alexander Peters, Managing Partner of the NEA GROUP, said: “In addition to the broad expertise in the entire spectrum of renewable energies, we were particularly impressed by the references for their electrolysis systems. The acquisition of HYTRON, enables us to offer our customers a harmonised hydrogen infrastructure, i.e. starting from generation to compression to filling and feeding, from a single source - exactly addressing the needs of the fast growing world market.”
Stefanie Peters, Managing Partner of the NEA GROUP and member of the German National Hydrogen Council, added: “In our Strategy 2025, we defined at an early stage how we, as a family-owned company, want to help achieve ambitious climate goals. Simultaneously supporting the ramp-up of a hydrogen economy in the national hydrogen council personally and contributing to a climate-neutral future with our own innovative product portfolio marks the cornerstones for the sustainable development of the NEA GROUP."
HYTRON will be integrated into the newly founded division NEA ENERGY SOLUTIONS as an independent company and brand. ARCANUM ENERGY (renewable energy solutions, biogas upgrading solutions) and AE DRIVEN SOLUTIONS (mobility solutions) were recently incorporated into this division.
