ABB collaborates with Lhyfe, Skyborn on European renewable hydrogen projects

SoutH2port is expected to produce about 240 tons of hydrogen per day, with an installed capacity of 600 MW.

ABB is collaborating with Lhyfe, a producer of renewable hydrogen, and Skyborn, a provider of renewable energy, to jointly work on SoutH2Port, a large-scale Swedish renewable hydrogen project.

The project, according to the companies, is to be located in close proximity to Skyborns’ 1 GW offshore wind farm Storgrundet in Söderhamn, Sweden, where Skyborn and Lhyfe recently entered a sales purchase agreement with Stora Enso for an industry property. When fully operational, SoutH2port is expected to produce about 240 tons of hydrogen per day, with an installed capacity of 600 MW, making it one of the largest suppliers of renewable hydrogen in Europe, the recent press release notes.

As part of the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the companies, ABB will apply its expertise to optimize the integration of the hydrogen and electricity production across the entire ecosystem including automation, electrical and digital technologies and drive the development of scalable, commercial energy transition projects in and around the region. The aim is to explore opportunities to tie in Power-to-X conversion technologies, turning renewably sourced electricity into carbon-neutral energy carriers, such as hydrogen, and storing the energy for later use.

The new plant will support the decarbonization of the Swedish energy system, either directly with hydrogen supply or by further downstreaming production of refined fuels such as methanol, sustainable aviation fuel or ammonia – contributing to the government’s plans to reduce emissions and fossil fuel use.
