Plastic Omnium organized a visit of an industrial site for its individual shareholders on November 30th, 2023.
Almost twenty individual shareholders had the opportunity to visit our Herentals site in Belgium to discover the Group’s means of production for hydrogen tank systems, as well as energy and depollution systems. The site produces more than 1 million fuel tanks per year and the annual production capacity of high-pressure hydrogen tanks reaches 10,000 tanks.
Opened in 1997, our Herentals site now employs nearly 200 people and has undergone numerous developments to become a state-of-the-art center for the development of hydrogen tanks. The first production line for high-pressure hydrogen tanks was set up in 2020.
This visit was also an opportunity to discover the means of energy production located on the Plastic Omnium site: solar panels installed since 2019 and a wind turbine since 2022 with annual productions of 1 GWh and 8 GWh respectively, allowing to cover more than 50% of the energy consumption of the Herentals site.
