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.
