Hexagon Purus and Lhyfe entered into commercial cooperation to deliver Hexagon Purus’ type 4 hydrogen distribution systems.
As a result, Lhyfe can deliver a maximum of 19 tons of green hydrogen per trip, corresponding to the consumption of 650 transit buses.
Lhyfe counts among its strategic investments made by Mitsui & Co., Ltd., which is also a shareholder and strategic alliance partner of Hexagon Purus. As a common strategic partner, Mitsui has played an important facilitating role in this agreement and helped accelerate green hydrogen deployment in Europe.
Antoine Hamon, Director of Operations at Lhyfe, said, “The conclusion of this important cooperation with an industry leader such as Hexagon Purus allows us to secure our logistics capacity, and to meet the needs of our rapid development across Europe.”
Matthieu Guesné, CEO & founder of Lhyfe, said, “Demand for green hydrogen will surge in the coming years and Lhyfe aims to become one of the leading green and renewable hydrogen producers in Europe.”
Michael Kleschinski, EVP of Hexagon Purus, said, “Our distribution systems with Type 4 composite high-pressure cylinders are the preferred technology for bulk distribution of compressed hydrogen”.
Hiroshi Kakiuchi, COO at Mitsui, said, “We are also committed to fostering synergies between these partners that have a common vision and interests with Mitsui to decarbonize the mobility and industry sector as well as to creating a framework of trust to facilitate their collaborations.”
