Fuel cells works, Lhyfe Announces Its First Projects for Hydrogen Production From Renewables In Denmark
  • Lhyfe, the only French partner of the GreenLab consortium, which is paving the way in Europe for energy transition in industry
  • Lhyfe, a GreenHyScale project partner for the production of renewable hydrogen through the deployment of a 100MW electrolysis plant at the GreenLab Skive site.

Lhyfe, the European pioneer and pure player in renewable hydrogen, has announced its first projects in Denmark. The Nantes-based firm was asked to play a role in the new Danish industrial park GreenLab, one of Europe’s first official and regulatory energy test zones.

Lhyfe and its partners will install a hydrogen production site equipped with 24 MW of electrolysis by the end of 2022. The French company is also a member of the GreenHyScale project consortium, which is currently in the preparation phase of an agreement with CINEA (European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency), in response to the European Green Deal funding call for a new-generation 100MW electrolysis plant to be implemented in 2024.

With its partners Green Hydrogen Systems and Eurowind Energy, Lhyfe – the only French partner involved – has just signed a master supply agreement for an electrolysis plant with up to 24MW capacity, enabling the production of approximately 8 tonnes of renewable hydrogen a day. This hydrogen will be processed into green methanol for use in the transport sector and by companies operating at the industrial park, as well as to fuel local transport in the area.

The first phase of the plant, which will cover a capacity of approximately 12MW, is expected to be installed at the end of 2022.

GreenLab is a 600,000m2 green industrial energy park, which is located beside Skive. It is one of the first official and regulatory energy test zones. The park aims to solve one of the biggest challenges in the green energy transition: the integration of unprecedented amounts of renewable energy into the energy system, to allow new industrial parks to set up joint energy production and consumption without negatively affecting the existing collective energy network. GreenLab integrates energy production, industry, agriculture, pyrolysis and Power-to-X in one platform.

Lhyfe was also asked to join the GreenHyScale project consortium, which is currently preparing a grant agreement with CINEA for a new large-scale electrolysis plant, following the EU’s Green Deal 2.2 call for funding proposals. The 100MW electrolysis plant will be operational in 2024 and will generate 30 tonnes of renewable hydrogen a day.

The objective of this project is to pave the way for large-scale deployment of electrolysis both onshore and offshore, in line with the EU hydrogen strategy and offshore renewable energy strategy. Technically, GreenHyScale will demonstrate a minimum 100MW of green electrolysis based on a novel multi-MW-range alkaline electrolyser platform delivered by Green Hydrogen Systems, that is, a new symbiotic, industrial Power-to-X platform. The grant has a budget contribution of 30 million euros.
