Lhyfe ordered ten 5 MW European manufactured PEM electrolyzer systems with Plug Power Inc. to produce green hydrogen across multiple European plants.
The electrolyzers will be assembled in Europe. Plug’s 5MW turnkey electrolyzer is the largest available outdoor solution with the smallest footprint in the market.
With these electrolyzers of a total capacity of 50 MW (equivalent to up to 20 tons per day), Lhyfe aims to produce renewable green hydrogen using primarily wind and solar power for various mobility applications in Europe, including forklifts and light commercial vehicles, such as 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.
Lhyfe will be developing each hydrogen plant, achieving high performance. Lhyfe will also operate each site and manage renewable energy and renewable green hydrogen commercialization and delivery.
Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug. “In addition to high-performing electrolyzers, we are bringing to Lhyfe deep mobility opportunities through our joint venture with Renault and our experience deploying hydrogen-powered forklift solutions for customers like Amazon and Walmart.”
Matthieu Guesné, founder and CEO of Lhyfe said, “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.”
