Clean technology specialists Gaussin and Lhyfe have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to accelerate development of green hydrogen-powered handling vehicles.
The strategic partnership aims to offer a global solution for the production and distribution of carbon-free mobility at ports, airports, and logistics sites.
Under the MoU, the France-based operators will study combining Gaussin’s hydrogen vehicles with the renewable green hydrogen produced by Lhyfe, and identify potential domestic and international customers. Lhyfe – which inaugurated its first renewable green hydrogen industrial production site in the second half of 2021 – has a commercial pipeline representing a total production capacity of 9.8GW by 2030 (as of September 2022).
It aims to develop and operate renewable green hydrogen production sites across Europe to decarbonise transport and industry, and has recently launched its UK operation in North East England.
In January it successfully completed the 8,000km Dakar Rally with its H2 Racing truck, the first hydrogen-powered vehicle to enter the annual event.
Christophe Dubruque, Mobility Development Director at Lhyfe, said rRenewable green hydrogen is now an extremely relevant solution for the logistics sector, from all points of view – ecologically, practically and economically.
He said, “This Memorandum of Understanding will allow us to approach the very specific sector of logistics, port and airport sites with a perfectly adapted turnkey solution.”Christophe Gaussin, CEO of Gaussin – named ‘Hydrogen Personality of the Year’ at the Hydrogénies – Hydrogen Awards at the French National Assembly – said it has a full range of hydrogen-powered vehicles, and wants to accelerate the implementation of these mobility solutions by facilitating, via Lhyfe, the distribution of green hydrogen.
