Jon Duffy, CPH2 CEO commented:

"2023 has been a year of further progress for CPH2, both operationally and technically. Our focus has centered on developing our unique technology for commercialisation, ensuring safety and scalability through rigorous testing of the MFE110. The successful running of the entire MFE110 system, producing separated hydrogen and oxygen gases, stands as a key milestone for CPH2, proving our differentiated technology works at scale.

 

I would like to thank our shareholders who have been patient and supportive as we approach the final stages of testing. I firmly believe that our methodical and focused approach to ensuring the technology is both safe and scalable means that we are well positioned to take meaningful strides once commercialisation is achieved. Collaborating closely with our license partners and customers, this year marks another encouraging step toward our ambitious goal of achieving 4GW of annual production by the end of 2030.

 

I extend heartfelt thanks to our team for their hard work, dedication and enthusiasm over the past year and look forward to a positive year ahead.”
