Nantes Saint-Nazaire Port selects Lhyfe for hydrogen site construction

Lhyfe wins call for proposals by the Nantes Saint-Nazaire Port for hydrogen site

Lhyfe has won the call for proposals (AMI), launched by Nantes Saint-Nazaire Port, to develop a green hydrogen industrial production and distribution site in Montoir-de-Bretagne (Loire-Atlantique).

Lhyfe is a global producer of renewable green hydrogen for transportation and industrial applications.

Launched on 21 November 2022, the call for proposals concerned the provision of land located at the heart of the port’s industrial and logistics ecosystem, in Montoir-de-Bretagne, for a project to set up an industrial renewable hydrogen production activity.

Nantes Saint-Nazaire Port has embarked on a path towards a new low-carbon economic model for its business, which is still heavily dependent on fossil fuels. Nantes Saint-Nazaire Port wanted to offer a solution to encourage the development of the hydrogen industry in the region.

As part of this project, Lhyfe will build an industrial unit with a production capacity of up to 85 tonnes per day of green and renewable hydrogen located in the north of the bulk port terminal. This site should be operational by 2028.

Lhyfe produces green and renewable hydrogen through the electrolysis of water at production units powered by renewable energy. The company’s first site has already been in operation since the latter half of 2021, and seven other sites are currently in construction throughout Europe (France, Germany and Sweden).

The project is set to contribute to the decarbonisation of the industrial port complex and of the maritime transport.

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

In October 2023, the Port of Rotterdam Authority officially began the construction of the national hydrogen network.

More recently, HAROPA Port and Verso Energy signed an agreement for the installation of a plant to produce low-carbon hydrogen and synthetic fuels on HAROPA Port land in Grand-Quevilly.
