Lhyfe warns of the risks of oxygen depletion in the oceans

Lhyfe is involved in the production of green hydrogen from offshore wind farms, and hopes to use the oxygen generated to revitalise the oceans. Its research has been published in a scientific journal.

Typically, scientific publications are linked to innovations. But, this is a completely different field, one that may at first glance seem far removed from the world of hydrogen. However, we have already explained on Hydrogen Today that Lhyfe aims to reoxygenate the oceans, using the oxygen generated by water electrolysis. This is an application targeted by the Boxhy project in the Baltic Sea.

For the past 4 years, the company has been working with a number of research bodies, including the French National Research Institute for Sustainable Development (IRD) in Brest. But this time, the subject is being addressed in a scientific article.

Published by the journal Global Change Biology, this paper is a summary of articles published around the world between 2006 and 2023. The aim is to raise awareness of the importance of the subject among scientific, institutional and industrial players. The publication was prepared by Patricia Handmann, Oxygen Advisor at Lhyfe. And Douglas Wallace of Dalhousie University in Canada was a contributor.

Meanwhile, Lhyfe continues with its offshore wind projects. The company launched its first offshore production pilot in 2022 (Sealhyfe, 1 MW) and is working on its next project (HOPE, 10 MW), due to be commissioned in 2026 near Ostend (Belgium). By 2030-2035, Lhyfe could have installed offshore capacity of around 3 GW.
