Lhyfe, a player in renewable green hydrogen, and the Swedish local energy company Trelleborgs Energi have joined forces in a pre-study that aims to build a local renewable hydrogen production system in southernmost Sweden. As committed change makers, both companies are set to act now for the climate, focusing on green hydrogen as a solution. The results are due to be presented in the summer 2022.
The initial study focuses on 5 MW of green hydrogen production capacity, in Trelleborg. The study covers the questions of energy supply, production capacity, technology selection and location, as well as utilization of waste heat and oxygen. Trelleborg is a major transport hub that will require hydrogen to supply refuelling stations as well as to already ordered hydrogen vehicles. The number of heavy trucks passing through Trelleborg harbour is forecasted to increase from today’s 800,000 per year, to 1.8 million in 2026. Situated in the Öresund region, this project study in Trelleborg may contribute to securing hydrogen supply for both mobility and industry in efforts to reach zero carbon emissions. The utilization of waste heat and oxygen (a by-product of hydrogen production) is already being discussed with potential partners.
Lhyfe and Trelleborgs Energy: the comments
“We are proud to work hand in hand with Trelleborgs Energi, a company in a city that is putting green hydrogen on the Swedish map and above all also into action,” says Björn Arvidsson, Area Manager Nordics & UK at Lhyfe. “We share a common DNA: we both want to act now for the climate, with focus on renewable hydrogen. It is inspiring to collaborate to further propel the energy transition in the region.”
The joint pre-study will point towards an optimum initial set up for the production of hydrogen, using renewable electricity.
“We want to create sustainable energy solutions locally and renewable green hydrogen is part of that plan,” says Magnus Sahlin, CEO of Trelleborgs Energi. “Hydrogen is a clever, multi-purpose energy carrier and can play a part in solving the climate challenge. We believe in making a real difference, in “walk the talk”, and our renewable hydrogen initiative is one way of doing that.”
