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.
Lhyfe starts construction of its second green hydrogen production plant, in Brittany (France). Lhyfe Bretagne will have the capacity to produce up to 2 tonnes of green and renewable hydrogen per day for mainly local uses.
