Lhyfe has established a base in Sheffield to lead hydrogen research and support businesses transitioning to Net Zero.
The company’s has expanded its UK operations with the aim of accelerating the roll-out of hydrogen fuel across the region.
Alongside its existing base in Newcastle, Lhyfe will utilise these facilities to actively explore production sites and partnerships across the globe.
The Sheffield office will be based in the Wizu Workspace in the city centre and headed up by Lhyfe’s Stuart Sinclair, the company aiming to establish links in academia with high-profile hydrogen research projects underway at the University of Sheffield.
Sinclair, Offshore Deployment UK and Ireland at Lhyfe, said, “Sheffield is at the epicentre of the development of the UK’s hydrogen economy and we look forward to playing our part in its growth.
“The city boasts exceptional supply chain potential and strong industry connections, as well as ongoing world-leading hydrogen research and development.”
Since the launch of Lhyfe’s UK operation in 2022, the team has grown to six staff members and currently has a recruitment drive underway to bolster plant deployment.
The company has six hydrogen production sites across Europe currently under construction, along with its inaugural plant in Pays de La Loire. Lhyfe aims for its production capacity to reach up to 22 tonnes of green hydrogen per day by the end of 2024 and up to 80 tonnes per day by 2026.
Lhyfe’s UK and Ireland Country Manager, Colin Brown, commented, “This new office is in line with our ambitious UK development plans and we felt it was the right time to establish a base here.
“I firmly believe creating regional green hydrogen ecosystems should allow everyone to benefit, in a way that is open to all while ensuring regional economies of scale.”
The UK Government has doubled its low-carbon hydrogen production target from 5GW to 10GW by 2030, aiming for at least half of this coming from green hydrogen.
