TotalEnergies and Air Liquide join forces on green hydrogen development
The project will contribute to the decarbonisation of the Gonfrevillle site, reducing its carbon emissions by up to 150,000 tons a year.
This cooperation between Air Liquide and TotalEnergies is aligned with the two companies’ shared commitment to contributing to decarbonise industrial operations in the Axe Seine corridor.
The project calls for the supply of 10,000 tons of green hydrogen per year to the platform in Normandy and up to 5,000 tons per year of low carbon hydrogen starting from the second half of 2026.
"This partnership with Air Liquide is a new step in TotalEnergies' ambition to decarbonise the hydrogen used by its refineries in Europe by 2030. By supplying the electrolyser with renewable electricity from solar and wind projects, TotalEnergies is making the most of its positioning as an integrated power supplier," said Bernard Pinatel, president refining and chemicals.
"This memorandum of understanding illustrates our ability to offer concrete decarbonisation solutions to our customers.
“Air Liquide Normand’Hy will contribute to the decarbonisation trajectory of our assets; it is also in line with our commitment to accompany the industry and mobility sectors in their path to reducing their carbon footprint. Our collaboration also strengthens hydrogen development in Normandy,” said Pascal Vinet, executive vice-president and a member of Air Liquide’s executive committee.
