Lhyfe has signed a sales agreement with HYmpulsion - the company in charge of deploying hydrogen infrastructure under the Zero Emission Valley (ZEV) project in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes.
The ZEV project, launched in 2017, aims to develop a profitable and sustainable carbon-free mobility chain across the region by simultaneously deploying green hydrogen production, storage and distribution infrastructure.
By mid-2025, Lhyfe plans to build a green hydrogen production facility with a production capacity of two tonnes per day (5 MW) in Le Cheylas (between Grenoble and Chambéry), on the former waste storage site of the Ascométal steelworks.
This site will meet the needs of seven of Hympulsion’s hydrogen stations in the Alps, supplying for a 10-year period an annual volume of 600 tonnes
Thierry Raevel, chairman of HYmpulsion and Regional Director for ENGIE, said: “Beyond the national challenges of security of energy supply, hydrogen responds to a triple challenge for our region: decarbonisation of light and heavy mobility, improvement of air quality in our valleys, and local job creation.
"We are proud to enter into this partnership with Lhyfe for the production of renewable hydrogen. This project will provide a supply for the Hympulsion stations, in addition to the hydrogen from our 2MW electrolyser (approximately 800kg of hydrogen a day)."
Matthieu Guesné, Founder and CEO of Lhyfe, added: “The project of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region is ambitious and on a par with the challenges of energy transition.
"We are proud to be part of its deployment and to be contributing very concretely to the development of clean mobility in the region. This partnership also confirms our ability to make a long-term commitment to our customers, as is the case with HYmpulsion for which we will deliver green and renewable hydrogen over a period of 10 years.”
