23 juni 2022

DIF Capital Partners (“DIF”), through DIF Infrastructure VI, has acquired an interest in green hydrogen production facilities developer VoltH2 (the “Company”). DIF entered into a strategic partnership with Virya Energy, a leading Belgian renewable energy company, in acquiring a majority stake in the Company, with VoltH2’s founder André Jurres, retaining a meaningful share as well.

The Netherlands based VoltH2 holds permits and secured land plots for two production sites in Vlissingen and Terneuzen, with advanced planning underway for an additional site in Delfzijl as well as a number of early phase development positions. The three most advanced facilities have a capacity of initially 75 MW which can be scaled up to 250 MW. DIF’s and Virya’s involvement enables VoltH2 to realise its first green hydrogen production facilities in the near future and further expand the pipeline.

André Jurres, Managing Director of VoltH2: “This investment attests to the confidence in green hydrogen and in the growth of VoltH2. With the involvement of DIF Capital Partners and Virya Energy, we can anchor VoltH2 locally as well as internationally, achieve our ambitions and play a crucial role in the European energy market and energy transition.”

Gijs Voskuyl, Partner at DIF Capital Partners, adds: “We expect a significant demand increase for green hydrogen in the short and medium term. As an investor with a strong footprint and ongoing focus within the energy transition space, we aim to play a role in this fast growing and capital intensive market and believe VoltH2 as well as Virya Energy are excellent partners to realise these ambitions.”
