2nd ORLEN Hydrogen Academy launched

by Dignity News
ORLEN is continuing its programme for students and graduates who want to gain experience in the hydrogen industry. The second H2 Academy includes practical classes in a laboratory in Włocławek. The best graduates will have the opportunity to join ORLEN or one of the project’s partners for a longer period and benefit from a paid internship.

“Hydrogen is one of the key energy sources in the fight against the decarbonisation of industry and transport. Therefore, in line with our strategy, we are betting on its wide application. At the same time, it is a modern industry whose further development depends primarily on the work of many people and the availability of qualified personnel. Hence the idea of a programme for students and graduates in the form of a Hydrogen Academy”, said Józef Węgrecki, Member of the ORLEN Management Board. “For ORLEN Group, hydrogen is not a fuel of the future, it is an area we have been working on intensively for many years. The interest in the programme and the success of the previous program leave no doubt that it is worth continuing the project”, emphasised Węgrecki.

The aim of the H2 Academy is to exchange knowledge between experts and practitioners with many years of experience in the field, and people interested in the indicated topics who are just starting their careers in the industry. The programme includes a series of lectures and workshops, as well as meetings with experts and scientists from the hydrogen industry.

The H2 Academy is aimed at 3rd, 4th and 5th year students and graduates. The 31 participants of the second edition include representatives from all over Poland, from faculties such as power engineering, RES with industrial specialisation, hydrogen energy, technical physics and law.

Substantive partners of the second Hydrogen Academy are the Gdansk University of Technology and the Cracow University of Technology. Business partners of the programme are manufacturers of hydrogen-powered vehicles: Pesa, Toyota and Solaris, who this year also prepared internship places for the best graduates of the H2 Academy.
