The Bouin site, which is the first production site for renewable and ecological hydrogen, will produce its first molecules of hydrogen from 2021. The site is unique in that it is interconnected with the Vendée Energie wind farm a few hundreds of metres away, and thus ensures truly renewable hydrogen. We like to describe it as “ecological hydrogen”. The site will supply the first Lhyfe hydrogen clients who are based nearby.

This scalable production facility will begin by producing 300 kilograms of hydrogen a day and can be ramped up to one tonne a day to meet the growing needs expected in industry and the transportation sector.
