Lhyfe Unveils Ambitious Plans for Germany’s Largest Green Hydrogen Plant

Lhyfe, a prominent player in the hydrogen sector, has disclosed its vision to generate a substantial 330 tons of green h2 daily at the envisioned Lubmin facility in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany, with an anticipated operational date set for 2029.

This strategic initiative aligns with Lhyfe’s comprehensive development strategy, as the plant, equipped with an electrolysis capacity of 800 MW, will integrate into Germany’s crucial hydrogen pipeline network. The German government recently revealed a €20 billion financing plan to advance this pipeline network.

Luc Graré, Head of Central and Eastern Europe at Lhyfe, emphasized the strategic significance of the chosen location, stating, “We are constructing these plants not only to address our immediate requirements but to contribute to the sustainable development of future generations. The integration of green hydrogen in Europe is a long-term initiative, and Lubmin fulfills all criteria to establish itself as a enduring hub for green hydrogen.”

He further expressed eagerness about the extended growth of this location, the evolution of the region’s core hydrogen infrastructure, and the pivotal role in supporting the prolonged decarbonization efforts in Europe’s industrial and transportation sectors.

Lhyfe’s Lubmin project will be situated on the grounds of a decommissioned nuclear power plant, providing access to substantial existing and future electricity production capacities from offshore wind farms.

Additionally, the site benefits from a high-voltage grid connection operated by transmission systems operator 50Hertz, which already manages a transformer station in Lubmin, ensuring the delivery of all necessary electricity for hydrogen production.

It’s noteworthy that Lhyfe claims an impressive backbone project portfolio, reflecting 3.8 GW of electrolysis installed capacity as of June 2023, constituting around 37% of its total project pipeline. This includes significant projects in Perl, Saarland (Germany), and Delfzijl (Netherlands).
