NPROXX wins 2020 AC2 Innovation Prize

ETC's subsidiary company, NPROXX, has won a prestigious Innovation award for the development of carbon fibre pressure vessels for hydrogen storage.

NPROXX has been awarded the “2020 AC2 Innovation Prize, District of Aachen” for the development of carbon fibre high pressure storage vessels for gaseous hydrogen storage. Weight and product quality are what set this technology apart from conventional products. As a result, these storage vessels are ideally suited for vehicle production and transport solutions for the mobility of the future. NPROXX sees itself as a key player in the innovative technology sector and is currently working on expanding its manufacturing capacity.

Sustainable energy, traffic and transportation systems using hydrogen

In his role as Jury Chairman, the District Administrator of the District of Euskirchen, Markus Ramers, presented the Innovation Prize Award to Dr. Rainer vor dem Esche, Managing Director of NPROXX. In his laudatory speech, Ramers paid tribute to the winner as follows: “In market analyses, 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!”
