Lhyfe places 50MW electrolyser order

French green hydrogen developer Lhyfe has placed a 50MW electrolyser order with Plug Power for several project sites in Europe. - ReNews

The order is for 10 5MW proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyser systems, made in Europe.

This is the largest electrolyser order placed by Lhyfe.

Lhyfe aims to produce a renewable green hydrogen using primarily wind and solar power for various mobility applications in Europe, including forklifts and light commercial vehicles, such as the Master Van from Hyvia, Plug’s joint venture with Renault with hydrogen deliveries as early as 2023.

Lhyfe and Plug, having initiated a strategic relationship in October 2021, will also jointly develop 300MW of renewable green hydrogen plants across Europe by 2025.

We’re moving quickly to deliver on a shared ambition with Lhyfe to reduce carbon emissions in Europe’s mobility sector at scale. Renewable green hydrogen demand will only increase as both the private and public sectors seek to decarbonise operations to reach sustainability goals as well as improve energy security.

Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug

Lhyfe will develop each hydrogen plant and will also operate each site, managing renewable energy as well as renewable green hydrogen commercialisation and delivery.

This milestone demonstrates the acceleration of the development of Lhyfe's production unit projects. We have now demonstrated our ability to produce renewable green hydrogen from renewable energies and the relevance of our strategy to deploy numerous production sites for environmentally friendly and accessible hydrogen throughout Europe. It is now time to implement our projects. Expectations are high: this successful partnership with Plug Power allows us to meet them with confidence.

Matthieu Guesné, founder and CEO of Lhyfe
