United Kingdom/France – Plug Power has received an order from Lhyfe for ten 5 MW European-made PEM (proton exchange membrane) electrolyzer units to be used in the manufacturing of green hydrogen at several European facilities.
Lhyfe plans to use these 50 MW electrolyzers (equal to up to 20 tons per day) to generate renewable green hydrogen from principally wind and solar-power for use in a variety of European mobility applications. By 2025, Lhyfe and Plug aim to build 300MW of renewable green hydrogen plants across Europe. European countries will be responsible for building the electrolyzers.
Lhyfe launches in UK
Additionally, Lhyfe has begun its first operation in the United Kingdom with the goal of widespread decarbonization. The French conglomerate is expanding its operations in the United Kingdom by establishing a company and a team in the region of North East England in order to explore potential sites for the deployment of production facilities in support of the United Kingdom’s zero-net-energy goals.
The business plans to launch the first offshore hydrogen production demonstrator in the world in Saint-Nazaire in September 2022. UK’s vast offshore wind potential, especially in the North Sea, is a big boon for the business.
