Total SE and Engie SA are teaming up to set up a renewable hydrogen production site in Chateauneuf-les-Martigues, France.

The French energy companies said Wednesday that they have agreed to start construction of the project--called Masshylia--in 2022, aiming to begin production two years later.

The project will be located at Total's La Mede biorefinery site and produce five metric tons of green hydrogen a day for the biofuel production process.

The companies didn't disclose financial terms of the collaboration.
