Lhyfe, a leader in the production of green and renewable hydrogen, has secured a grant of approximately €11 million (SEK 125.6 million) from Klimatklivet, a Swedish Environmental Protection Agency-backed investment program. The funding will support the construction of a renewable hydrogen production facility in Trelleborg, Sweden's southernmost city and a pivotal transport hub. Trelleborg, recognized as Scandinavia's largest roll-on roll-off harbor, is a crucial gateway where 10% of Sweden's exports and imports are transacted annually. As the transportation and logistics sectors seek cleaner vehicle alternatives like hydrogen-powered electric vehicles, there is a growing demand for green hydrogen to fuel the area's expanding network of refueling stations. The new plant is projected to produce up to four tons of green hydrogen daily from a 10 MW installed electrolysis capacity, significantly contributing to the region's zero-emission goals. Operations are expected to commence in 2027, with the first production of green hydrogen. The grant will cover about 40% of the project's total estimated costs, encompassing development, design phases, equipment supply, and construction activities. Lhyfe stands as a pioneer in utilizing water electrolysis powered by renewable electricity for hydrogen production. Its initial plant in Bouin, France, has been operational since the second half of 2021, and additional sites have been launched in Occitanie and Brittany as of December 2023. Currently, Lhyfe is expanding with five more sites across Europe and employs 195 dedicated staff. The company's project pipeline spans approximately 10 GW in Europe, covering 12 countries. Sara Wihlborg, Lhyfe’s Country Manager for Sweden, expressed enthusiasm about the grant: "We are thrilled to receive this grant, marking our first subsidized project in Sweden. It not only recognizes our expertise in green hydrogen production and delivery but also reaffirms our commitment to Sweden's environmental agenda. This project is pivotal for bolstering green hydrogen supply for mobility in southern Sweden, aligning with our goal to expand green hydrogen use across the nation for both mobility and industrial applications." The realization of this project is contingent upon the approval of necessary operating authorizations, construction permits, and final investment decisions.
