The 200 employees currently working on the Gerland site, managing research and development projects as well as industrialisation projects are all concerned.

The project started in December 2014 and has been cut into 5 stages:

  • Design studies and basic studies;
  • Anticipating DCE “earthworks/covered areas”;
  • Approval for investment;
  • Launching the EPCP stage;
  • Setting up production (planned for December 2017).

The overall mission will eventually need a total of 15 people in the team, on average for a 3-year period.
