About Lhyfe Wallsend

Lhyfe Wallsend aims to supply green hydrogen to power industry and transport partners in the North East. Using renewable electricity, we split water into hydrogen and oxygen, creating a clean, carbon-free fuel. Green hydrogen reduces reliance on fossil fuels like diesel and natural gas in everyday life.

Our green hydrogen is produced through water electrolysis in units powered by renewable energy, then transported to nearby customers. It’s a proven technology, safely supplying local businesses, helping them eliminate carbon emissions. With a track record of groundbreaking projects in Europe, we’ve demonstrated the pivotal role of green hydrogen in building a sustainable future.

Wallsend is an ideal location, with industrial sites ready to switch seamlessly to green hydrogen. This versatile fuel can be used in different industries such as glass, chemicals, cement, steelmaking, and large vehicles like buses and trucks. Our ambition is to become a major regional supplier, so organisations can complete their journey to net zero.

The green hydrogen produced at our proposed 20MW plant near Neptune Energy Park could make a significant impact by reducing thousands of tonnes of carbon emissions. This supports the UK’s commitment to achieving net zero emissions by 2050 and North Tyneside Council’s earlier target of 2030. Beyond the environmental benefits, Lhyfe Wallsend would boost local job opportunities and encourage economic growth.

Lhyfe is in the process of preparing a planning application to submit to North Tyneside Council and would welcome your thoughts.
