ABB France Automates Lhyfe Green Hydrogen Facility

May 26, 2020
ABB will install its Freelance DCS for the automation of Lhyfe’s first green hydrogen clean energy production project.

Lhyfe, a French producer and supplier of green hydrogen, chooses ABB to install its Freelance distributed control system and Ability Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) digital platform at Lhyfe’s first green hydrogen production site. These offerings will reportedly control all the elements involved in the hydrogen production process at the Bouin site in the Vendée region, France.

"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,” says Bruno Roche, local business manager industrial automation at ABB France. “This is a win-win technical partnership and ABB is thrilled to be a helping Lhyfe to deliver this important clean energy milestone.”

With native inter-controller communication and a library of over 200 function blocks, ABB’s system will offer agility and scalability, according to the company. In coordination with Lhyfe and ABB, the system integrator Bossard, ABB's partner in the Vendée, will be responsible for the design, construction, programming and commissioning of the entire offering.
