Gaussin and Lhyfe team up to accelerate hydrogen mobility development

French green and renewable hydrogen producer Lhyfe and compatriot engineering firm Gaussin have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to expedite the development of hydrogen mobility at ports, airports, and logistics facilities.

The two parties will study the possibility of developing a comprehensive renewable mobility solution combining the hydrogen vehicles of Gaussin and the green and renewable hydrogen produced by Lhyfe. The partnership also includes a commercial component aimed at identifying potential customers in France and internationally who would be interested in such a comprehensive renewable mobility solution for logistics, port, and airport facilities.

Lhyfe produces green and renewable hydrogen from water and renewable energy. The company seeks to develop and operate green and renewable hydrogen production sites across Europe to decarbonize transport and industry. It already has a sales pipeline representing a total installed production capacity of 9.8 GW by 2030.

Thus, Lhyfe’s business complements that of Gaussin, which creates heavy-duty, hydrogen-powered vehicles.

“Gaussin has a full range of hydrogen-powered vehicles, and we want to accelerate the implementation of these mobility solutions by facilitating, via Lhyfe, the distribution of green hydrogen. Through our partnership, we can combine hydrogen vehicles and the distribution of renewable hydrogen through a global green mobility offer that may extend to Transport as a Service,” said Christophe Gaussin, CEO of Gaussin.

“This agreement completes an already rich year for Gaussin in the field of hydrogen, marked in particular by the success of our H2 Racing Truck in the Dakar Rally and its world tour, the “Hydrogen personality of the year” award which was presented to me at the National Assembly and the launch of the Automated Guided Vehicle AGV H2. With Lhyfe, we share the ambition of ramping up the hydrogen sector, and I am confident about the continuing negotiations.”
