Lhyfe and wpd collaborate on large-scale production of renewable green hydrogen

April 10, 2022 |

In France and Sweden, Lhyfe, a world pioneer and pure player in renewable green hydrogen production, and wpd Offshore AB, one of the world’s leading developers of onshore and offshore wind power, entered into a memorandum of understanding to jointly establish and directly connect a facility for green hydrogen production to wpd’s planned offshore wind farm, Storgrundet, in Söderhamn.

The goal is to achieve a total installed capacity of 600 MW, which makes the project one of the most ambitious green hydrogen projects announced in Sweden and Europe. The proposed facility is planned to be built in phases, starting in 2025, and is expected to be in full operation in connection with the commissioning of the Storgrundet wind farm.

The green hydrogen production site will be located close to and interconnected with the Storgrundet wind farm, in order to guarantee the source of green electricity. Lhyfe will design, build and operate it together with wpd. The installed power planned for the Storgrundet offshore wind farm is 1 GW, which corresponds approximately to Forsmark’s nuclear power reactor No. 1. For optimal utilization of the hydrogen plant, the planned hydrogen production capacity is 600 MW for a production of about up to 240 tonnes per day.
