France-based renewable hydrogen producer and technology supplier Lhyfe Labs (Lhyfe) has announced that it has signed a master supply agreement for an electrolysis plant with up to 24 MW capacity, enabling the production of approximately 8 tonnes of renewable hydrogen a day, with GreenLab Skive in Denmark. This hydrogen will be processed into green methanol for use in the transport sector and by companies operating at the GreenLab industrial park, as well as to fuel local transport in the area.

GreenLab Skive is a 600 000 m2 green industrial energy park located in Skive, Denmark, and is one of Europe’s first official and regulatory energy test zones.
The park aims to solve one of the biggest challenges in the green energy transition – the integration of unprecedented amounts of intermittent renewable energy into the energy system, to allow new industrial parks to set up joint energy production and consumption without negatively affecting the existing collective energy network.
GreenLab Skive integrates energy production, industry, agriculture, pyrolysis, and Power-to-X (PtX) in one platform, and Lhyfe joins partners Green Hydrogen Systems and Eurowind Energy, as the only French partner in the project.
The first phase of the plant, which will cover a capacity of approximately 12 MW, is expected to be installed at the end of 2022.
Join GreenHyScale project
Lhyfe has also joined the GreenHyScale project consortium, which is currently preparing a grant agreement with the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) for a new large-scale electrolysis plant, following the EU’s Green Deal 2.2 call for funding proposals.
The other consortium members are GreenLab A/S, Green Hydrogen Systems A/S, Energy Cluster Denmark, Everfuel, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, Equinor Energy A/S, Technical University of Denmark, Imperial College London, Quantafuel, and Euroquality.
The objective of this project is to pave the way for large-scale deployment of electrolysis both onshore and offshore, in line with the EU hydrogen strategy and offshore renewable energy strategy.
The 100 MW electrolysis plant is planned to be operational in 2024 and will generate 30 tonnes of renewable hydrogen a day. The grant has a budget contribution of EUR 30 million.
Technically, GreenHyScale will demonstrate a minimum of 100 MW of green electrolysis based on a novel multi-MW-range alkaline electrolyzer platform delivered by Green Hydrogen Systems, that is, a new symbiotic, industrial PtX platform.
Lhyfe’s motto is to make greener and cheaper hydrogen. In that sense, the direct connection to renewable energy is intuitively the straightest way to achieve this. The GreenLab project is a large-scale demonstration to everyone that it is feasible today not tomorrow. Lhyfe is glad to share its know-how and be a part of this world-class project. We are extremely proud, too, to be part of the GreenHyScale consortium and to be working together to deliver a renewable hydrogen production plant of such a scale. It is perfectly in line with Lhyfe’s ambition to accelerate the energy transition, said Matthieu Guesné, CEO and Founder of Lhyfe.
