Green hydrogen for Lhyfe in Germany

15 January 2024

Lhyfe plans to produce up to 330 tons of green hydrogen per day at an 800 MW electrolysis plant to be located in Lubmin, eastern Germany, with commissioning targeted for 2029. Part of Lhyfe’s backbone development strategy, the plan is for the plant to feed into the proposed German core hydrogen pipeline network, for which the German government recently unveiled a €20 billion financing plan.

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 Grare´, 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.
