The remarkable journey of Lhyfe, with its pioneering achievements and ongoing commitment to a sustainable future.
Birth of the project
After becoming a father, Matthieu Guesné decided to take action to ensure a better future for his children and the next generations. Driven by a desire to make a positive impact on the planet’s future, he founded Lhyfe, the project aimed at ensuring a better tomorrow thanks to green and renewable hydrogen.
The official launch of Lhyfe
Lhyfe unveils its unique green hydrogen production solution, raises €8 million in funds from five different public and private investors and sets up its first industrial site in the first half of this year near Bouin wind farm, Vendée.
In Bouin (Vendée, France), the first hundreds of kilos of renewable hydrogen are produced, using an electrolyser powered by wind turbines a few hundred meters away! This industrial production facility is a unique technical achievement and the first of its kind in the world.
A global challenge to be tackled! SeaLhyfe, the world’s first offshore renewable hydrogen production pilot site, is inaugurated in Saint-Nazaire (France). Lhyfe will produce the first kilograms of renewable green hydrogen at quay and then at sea, operating automatically, in the most extreme conditions.
Inauguration of France’s largest green hydrogen production site
Lhyfe and AREC Occitanie inaugurated the Lhyfe Occitanie site which is one of the Region’s levers for achieving its objectives under the Occitanie H2 Corridor project, aimed at decarbonising goods and passenger transport.
Lhyfe inaugurated its green and renewable hydrogen production site – Lhyfe Bretagne – in Buléon which is the first of its kind to be built in Brittany and one of the two largest in France. Lhyfe Bretagne will mainly supply hydrogen for local transport and the industrial processes of regional companies.
