Lhyfe builds the largest commercial green hydrogen production plant in Germany

Producer of green hydrogen, Lhyfe, has begun the construction of a hydrogen production plant in the city of Schwäbisch Gmünd in Germany which will be the largest green hydrogen plant in Baden-Württemberg upon completion and the first to supply hydrogen directly to an industrial park.

It is also the first in a network of many plants that will be operated by Lhyfe and supply green hydrogen nationwide in Germany in the coming years.

The company’s ambition is to become a major player in green hydrogen delivered in bulk (for the broad market) in Germany and in France by 2025. The project in Schwäbisch Gmünd will help to ramp up the  market for green hydrogen in Germany and will use renewable electricity secured from hydro, wind and solar power purchase agreements. The plant should be commissioned in the second half of 2024.

The hydrogen will be used partly in the ‘H2-Aspen’ industrial park and at a JET H2 hydrogen filling station.

The project, which is funded by the state of Baden-Württemberg and the EU, among others, supports a sustainable neighbourhood solution for the local industry and lays the foundation for future climate-friendly infrastructure on the site. It is part of the HyFIVE (Hydrogen For Innovative Vehicles) project and is supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through a 6.4 million euro grant agreement.

“The project demonstrates the economic viability of hydrogen solutions in the transport and industry sectors and also supports the state of Baden-Württemberg in its efforts to become a model region for the development of hydrogen refueling infrastructure” said Luc Graré, Head of Central & Eastern Europe at Lhyfe. “We very much welcome the fact that the state and the city of Schwäbisch Gmünd want to implement their ambitious goals for a hydrogen economy based on renewable energies and that we are taking this step together. With the construction of the production plant, we are making an important contribution to the goals of the federal government.”
