Lhyfe to develop 200 MW green hydrogen plant in the Netherlands

Green hydrogen producer Lhyfe is targeting to build a 200 MW hydrogen production plant in the Chemical Cluster Delfzijl, situated in the Dutch province of Groningen. Planned to be commissioned in 2026, the plant will have an annual production capacity of more than 20,000 tons of renewable hydrogen.

The company has already secured the land and renewable energy connections for the plant.

Home to a significant industrial and chemical industry, Delfzijl is already a large consumer of hydrogen as a chemical feedstock. That need is set to grow significantly in the future.

“Delfzijl is an ideal location for renewable green hydrogen production as it has direct access to renewable energies from its offshore wind power plants which are situated off the coast,” said Luc Grare, Head of Central and Eastern Europe at Lhyfe.

“Groningen is one of Europe’s pioneers when it comes to the energy transition. The region’s goal is to become the leading hydrogen valley of North-Western Europe and to build up a complete value chain from production, storage and transportation of green hydrogen. We fully support this development and are proud to be part of the journey.

“Renewable green hydrogen as an energy carrier will support the transport of offshore generated energy through the country, helping to ease an already congested electricity grid. As such, Lhyfe’s Delfzijl plant will be able to supply green hydrogen throughout the Netherlands, as well as to potential off-takers in Germany and other bordering countries.”
