Lhyfe and Hexagon join forces for hydrogen distribution in Europe

French hydrogen producer Lhyfe and Norwegian hydrogen systems supplier Hexagon Purus have entered into commercial cooperation for the distribution of green and renewable hydrogen in Europe.

As part of the deal, the parties agreed to cooperate on the delivery of Hexagon Purus’ type 4 hydrogen distribution systems.

In return, Lhyfe will be able to deliver a maximum of 19 tons of green hydrogen per trip, corresponding to the consumption of 650 transit buses.

“Demand for green hydrogen will surge in the coming years and Lhyfe aims to become one of the leading green and renewable hydrogen producers in Europe“, says Matthieu Guesné, CEO & founder of Lhyfe. “We are very happy to have Hexagon Purus supporting our efforts in providing green and renewable hydrogen for transportation and industry applications in Europe.”

“We are very happy to cooperate with Lhyfe and support their ambitious growth plans for green hydrogen in Europe“, added Michael Kleschinski, EVP of Hexagon Purus. “Our distribution systems with Type 4 composite high-pressure cylinders are the preferred technology for bulk distribution of compressed hydrogen.”

This summer, Japanese trading company Mitsui & Co. invested NOK 70 million (around $7 million) in Norwegian Hydrogen, a company in which Hexagon Purus is one of the largest shareholders.

When it comes to Lhyfe’s recent activities, earlier this month, the company formed a strategic partnership with engineering firm Gaussin to accelerate the development of hydrogen mobility at port, airport and logistics sites.

Lhyfe also inaugurated the world’s first offshore renewable green hydrogen production pilot in Saint-Nazaire, France.

The platform, dubbed Sealhyfe, is starting an 18-month experimental period, first at quay in Saint-Nazaire, and then on the offshore testing site SEM-REV, operated by French engineering school Centrale Nantes.
