How can hydrogen ride the sustainability wave?

The Hydrogen market is expected to expand significantly in the next few years – GlobalData has tracked more than 43.6 mtpa of total active and upcoming low carbon hydrogen production capacity (green and blue hydrogen). As the industry develops and the cost of producing hydrogen drops, demand is expected to increase significantly. As a result, countries across the world are announcing much needed supporting policy framework for hydrogen. While refining and ammonia production have traditionally been the key consumer sectors for hydrogen, new uses such as transport and energy storage are set to influence the market. While green hydrogen presently has a small share in the overall production mix, it is poised to increase given the ambitious targets announced by various countries. GlobalData’s report provides insights into key issues in the emerging hydrogen space, such as:
  • Hydrogen value chain
  • Demand drivers
  • Key application areas
  • Technology trends

As per the terms of the contract, ABB will be responsible for the installation of an automation solution to control production process elements at its first green hydrogen site in Vendée region, France.

ABB France industrial automation local business manager Bruno Roche said: “Lhyfe is pioneering a revolutionary process that makes green hydrogen production possible on an industrial scale – a big step towards tackling the world’s carbon footprint.

“This is a win-win technical partnership and ABB is thrilled to be a helping Lhyfe to deliver this important clean energy milestone.”

Under the agreement, ABB will supply its Freelance distributed control system (DCS) and ABB Ability manufacturing operations management (MOM) digital platform to the Lhyfe production site.

Additionally, ABB’s partner Bossard will design, build, programme and commission the complete solution.

The solution being installed by ABB will enhance the operation’s efficiency, safety and productivity.

Lhyfe produces hydrogen directly from renewable energies such as wind and solar photovoltaic (PV) and more.

Lhyfe founder Matthieu Guesné said: “Around the world, ABB’s innovative solutions are improving industrial efficiency, productivity and quality while minimizing environmental impact.

“In addition, ABB is already very active in the world of hydrogen and renewable activities. Their experience and broad portfolio will hopefully mean we are in a position to partner on future projects. We are pleased to be working with a business so committed to renewable energy.”

In March this year, ABB secured a digital service contract to support TenneT’s 900MW DolWin5 offshore wind grid hub.
