Lhyfe to build another green hydrogen production plant in Brittany

Lhyfe has obtained the construction permit for its second green hydrogen production site in the Morbihan region of Brittany, France, and is about to begin preparatory construction work. Lhyfe Bretagne will have the capacity to produce up to 2 tonnes of green and renewable hydrogen per day (5 MW).

This announcement marks the beginning of a long series of deployments for Lhyfe, which aims to have over 3 GW of installed capacity by 2030.

In Buléon, Lhyfe will produce green and renewable hydrogen for local uses by electrolysis of water using resources and energy sourced nearby.

Lhyfe Bretagne will mainly supply hydrogen for transport in the region and the industrial processes of regional companies. Lorient Agglomération has already defined its green hydrogen needs and will be the first area in Brittany to benefit from the hydrogen produced at the Lhyfe site. Lhyfe Bretagne is part of the VHyGO project, supported by ADEME.

To launch this project, Lhyfe has identified a plot of land of approximately 6,800 m2 adjacent to a wind farm.

Now that the building permit has been obtained, civil engineering work can begin at the end of February, with commissioning scheduled for the second half of 2023.

The project’s central location will enable Lhyfe to supply its customers across almost all of Brittany – within a radius of about 150 km – in keeping with its short supply chain philosophy.
