Gaussin and Lhyfe have signed an MoU to accelerate the development of hydrogen mobility at port, airport and logistics sites by offering a global solution for producing and distributing carbon-free mobility.
According to the terms of the MoU signed by Gaussin and Lhyfe, the two operators will study the possibility of developing a comprehensive renewable mobility solution combining the hydrogen vehicles of Gaussin and the green and renewable hydrogen produced by Lhyfe.
The partnership also includes a commercial component aimed at identifying potential customers in France and abroad, likely to be interested in such a comprehensive renewable mobility solution for logistics, port and airport sites.
Lhyfe produces green and renewable hydrogen from water and renewable energy (by water electrolysis). The company, which inaugurated its first production site in 2021, already has a sales pipeline representing a total installed production capacity of 9.8 GW by 2030 (by mid-September 2022). It seeks to develop and operate green and renewable hydrogen production sites across Europe to decarbonise transport and industry.
Lhyfe’s business is thus complementary to that of Gaussin, which designs heavy-handling vehicles running on hydrogen. Aware of the possible synergies between their areas of business, Lhyfe and Gaussin wish to offer a global green hydrogen mobility solution for the transport and logistics ecosystem.
Christophe Dubruque, Director at Lhyfe, said, “Renewable green hydrogen is now an extremely relevant solution for the logistics sector, from all points of view – ecologically, practically and economically.”
Christophe Gaussin, CEO of Gaussin, said, “Through our partnership, we can combine hydrogen vehicles and the distribution of renewable hydrogen through a global green mobility offer that may extend to Transport as a Service.”
