The Neuman & Esser (NEA) Group has acquired HYTRON Energy & Gas (HYTRON). Headquartered in Sumaré, São Paulo, Brazil, HYTRON provides engineering and system integration for proton exchange membrane (PEM) and alkaline electrolyzers, natural gas and ethanol reformers, and other technology. Its solutions include studies, engineering projects, prototypes, supervisory services, automation, systems integration, and commissioning.

“In addition to the broad expertise in the entire spectrum of renewable energies, we were particularly impressed by the references for their electrolysis systems,” said Alexander Peters, managing partner of the NEA Group. “The acquisition of HYTRON enables us to offer our customers a harmonized 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.”

HYTRON will be integrated into the newly founded division NEA Energy Solutions as an independent company and brand.

“In our Strategy 2025, we defined at an early stage how we, as a family-owned company, want to help achieve ambitious climate goals,” said Stefanie Peters, managing partner of the NEA Group and member of the German National Hydrogen Council. “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.”
