Lhyfe Secures €149 Million Grant for Pioneering Green Hydrogen Plant in Le Havre

Lhyfe, a leader in green and renewable hydrogen production, has been granted up to €149 million by the French government for a groundbreaking hydrogen production facility near Le Havre. This financial backing supports a project with a 100 MW electrolysis capacity, recognized by the European Commission under the IPCEI on hydrogen. The announcement came during Roland Lescure, French Minister for Industry and Energy’s visit to Le Havre, highlighting Lhyfe’s pivotal role in the renewable hydrogen sector and the project’s alignment with France’s decarbonization goals.

Planned near the Grand Canal du Havre, the facility aims to produce 34 tonnes of green hydrogen daily, supporting the decarbonization efforts of nearby industries, including the Yara plant. Slated for operation by 2028 on a 2.8-hectare site in Gonfreville-l’Orcher, this initiative underscores Lhyfe’s commitment to cleaner energy solutions. The project, part of the EU’s strategic IPCEI hydrogen program, awaits final authorizations and financial investment decisions.
