Lhyfe, a French pioneer and pure player in renewable green hydrogen, and the Swedish local energy company Trelleborgs Energi AB are partnering in a pre-feasibility study that aims to build a local renewable hydrogen production system in southernmost Sweden. The results are due to be presented in the summer of 2022.

The initial pre-feasibility study focuses on 5 MW of green hydrogen production capacity, in Trelleborg.
The study covers the questions of energy supply, production capacity, technology- and site selection, as well as the utilization of residual heat and oxygen.
We are proud to work hand in hand with Trelleborgs Energi, a company in a city that is putting green hydrogen on the Swedish map and above all also into action, said Björn Arvidsson, Area Manager Nordics, and the UK at Lhyfe.
Major transport and logistics hub
Trelleborg and the Port of Trelleborg is a major multi-modal transport hub that will require hydrogen to supply refueling stations as well as to already ordered hydrogen-powered vehicles.
The number of heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs) trucks passing through the Port of Trelleborg, the largest RoRo-RoPax port in Scandinavia, is forecasted to increase from today’s 800 000 per year to 1.8 million in 2026.
Situated in the Öresund region, this pre-feasibility study in Trelleborg may contribute to securing hydrogen supply for both mobility and industry in efforts to reach zero carbon emissions.
The utilization of residual heat and oxygen, a by-product of hydrogen production, is already being discussed with potential partners.
We want to create sustainable energy solutions locally and renewable green hydrogen is part of that plan. Hydrogen is a clever, multi-purpose energy carrier and can play a part in solving the climate challenge. We believe in making a real difference, in “walking the talk”, and our renewable hydrogen initiative is one way of doing that, said Magnus Sahlin, CEO of Trelleborgs Energi.
Over 90 projects in development
Lhyfe is among the world’s largest and most advanced players in the green hydrogen market with 93 projects in development in Europe with more than 4.8 GW of total installed capacity.
We want to win the climate fight. That means investing in new technology, and building and operating green hydrogen production as soon as possible. This is targeted for 2024 here in the very south of Sweden. We strongly believe in the need and value of green hydrogen within industry and mobility. This project confirms Lhyfe’s strategic presence on the Swedish market, from south to north, said Björn Arvidsson.
The first industrial-scale plant inaugurated in France in September 2021, connects its production sites directly to local renewable energy sources to fuel local industry and mobility uses.
We need to use all the means available to us, to combat climate change, We are serious about our commitment to changing the energy sector to better, sustainable solutions for the future. Hydrogen has been used for almost a century, but it has proven to be a smart, modern solution, that can make a difference for us here and now, ended Magnus Sahlin.
