Nel Hydrogen Electrolyser AS, a subsidiary of Nel ASA has entered into a framework agreement for the delivery of up to 60 megawatts of electrolysers to Lhyfe Labs SAS (Lhyfe) in France.

“We are proud to be the choice of preference for Lhyfe. Our electrolysers have an unparalleled track record of providing the combination of high efficiency and reliability, and we’re happy to support Lhyfe in their hydrogen endeavours going forward,” says Jon André Løkke, CEO of Nel.

The framework agreement follows a previously unannounced EUR 1 million purchase order for an A150 alkaline electrolyser in March 2020, which will be used to produce green hydrogen for a fleet of buses in Bouin, France.

The agreement covers 20 additional electrolysers, equal to around 60 MW, intended to be purchased over the next 4 years under similar terms and conditions. The first electrolyser will be installed early 2021 next to a wind farm at Bouin, 50 kilometres southwest of Nantes, France.

“We’re happy to see that the long-term outlook for hydrogen remains positive, despite current challenges, including supply chain and travel restrictions affecting production and deployment,” Løkke concludes.
