Over the last two years, Lhyfe has developed a backbone project portfolio amounting to about 3.8 GW of electrolysis (as of June 2023), some 37% of its total project pipeline, including large projects such in Perl (Saarland) and Delfzijl (the Netherlands) located near future hydrogen transport infrastructure.

The Lubmin site is located very close to the anticipated German hydrogen backbone and offers good access to offshore wind farms and to the German grid. The new electrolysis facility will be built on the site of the decommissioned Greifswald VVER nuclear power plant.

“This location is of strategic importance to us,” emphasises Luc Graré, Head of Central & Eastern Europe at Lhyfe. “Lubmin meets all the requirements to establish itself as a sustainable centre for green hydrogen in the long term.”

The project’s implementation is subject to the granting of operating authorisations, construction permits, as well as to financial investment decisions, Lhyfe points out.
