ABB to automate Lhyfe’s first green hydrogen facility

By Mary Page Bailey |

Lhyfe, a French producer and supplier of green hydrogen, has chosen ABB (Zurich, Switzerland) to implement an automation solution at its first green hydrogen production site.

ABB supports a wide range of industries in their digital transformation and will supply the first Lhyfe production site with its Freelance distributed control system and ABB Ability Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) digital platform.

These solutions will control all the elements involved in the hydrogen production process at the Bouin site in the Vendée region, France and ABB’s automation technology is being installed to deliver improved efficiency, safety and productivity across the operation.

Bruno Roche, Local Business Manager Industrial Automation at ABB France, said: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.  This is a win-win technical partnership and ABB is thrilled to be a helping Lhyfe to deliver this important clean energy milestone.”

To control all the elements of the hydrogen production process at its fully automated 24/7 site in Bouin – to be inaugurated in 2021 – Lhyfe has chosen a complete ABB control solution. An integrated Freelance distributed control system (DCS) with a common and centralized database will reduce the development time and the complexity of automation systems.

With native inter-controller communication and a library of over 200 function blocks, this system will offer agility and scalability. 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 solution.
