H2scan is a company specializing in analyzers for measuring hydrogen concentration in oil and mixed gases environments. The company serves the power industry, petro-chemical and oil refinery markets, with leading applications for power transformers.

H2scan, who already has a business relationship with Altran to significantly reduce the cost of its sensor, is committed to use Altran as its development partner to support the development of:

  • the design of custom system solutions for its customers
  • the development of a new, lower cost sensor and ASIC
  • the development support for production efficiency initiatives.

our strategy in the US, contributing to transforming Altran`s energy business into a higher value digitalized global offering. By teaming up with H2scan, we will also further reinforce our relationship with major OEM players worldwide."
