Lhyfe: an €11 M grant for a green hydrogen project in Sweden

Lhyfe has announced receiving a grant from Klimatklivet, an investment programme supported by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, which will help finance a green hydrogen production unit in the southernmost city of Trelleborg, Sweden.

With this plant, Lhyfe will be able to produce up to 4 tonnes of green hydrogen per day, based on an installed electrolysis capacity of 10 MW. Production of the first kilograms of green hydrogen is scheduled for 2027.

The grant, which will finance the development and design phases, the supply of equipment and the construction work, represents around 40% of the total estimated investment for this project. Lhyfe is delighted. “We see {the grant} as a clear reward of our efforts and as the recognition of our expertise in the production and delivery of green hydrogen to multiples customers over the last two years.” Stated Sara Wihlbhorg, Country Manager Sweden at Lhyfe.

The project in question will contribute to low-carbon mobility in the Trelleborg region, which is a major transport hub. It is home to Scandinavia’s largest ro-ro port, through which 10% of Sweden’s exports and imports pass every year. Lhyfe aims to meet the needs of transport and logistics companies seeking to replace their fleets with less polluting vehicles.
