Lhyfe, the French producer and supplier of green hydrogen, has chosen ABB 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 AbilityTM Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) digital platform.
These solutions will control all the elements involved in the hydrogen production process at the fully automated 24/7 Bouin site in the Vendée region, France, which is to be inaugurated in 2021. Lhyfe has chosen a complete ABB control solution which is being installed to deliver improved efficiency, safety and productivity across the operation. An integrated Freelance distributed control system (DCS) with a common and centralised 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.
