French renewable hydrogen producer Lhyfe SA (EPA:LHYFE) will explore the conditions for the production of green hydrogen in Sweden, under a partnership with the municipality of Harjedalen, it said on Friday.
The Nantes-based company will conduct a feasibility analysis that will aim to determine whether it will proceed with a more detailed assessment afterwards. The analysis is due to be launched this month, with results to be available at the beginning of 2023.
The feasibility study will analyse the possibilities for the production of green and renewable hydrogen with an estimated capacity of 5 MW. The assessment will also review aspects related to energy supply, production capacity, choice of technology, location, available land, use of waste heat and coproduced oxygen gas.
According to Lhyfe, the produced hydrogen could be used in transportation and for industrial purposes.
Harjedalen municipality currently has one wind farm in operation and another one under construction.“Harjedalen has really good conditions. Good connections to the Inlandsbanan and activities linked to the wonderful nature, summer as well as winter. The region is also really well placed from an energy perspective,” said Jens Marquardt, project developer at Lhyfe Sweden.
