Launch of the project LuxHyVal

Promoting the use of green hydrogen in Luxembourg

On 17 June 2024, Luxembourg has launched Luxembourg Hydrogen Valley (LuxHyVal), a project that targets the potentialproduction of green hydrogen in Bascharage in 2026.  LuxHyVal is a collaborative effort of 17 partners from 7 countries with the University of Luxembourg (Prof Bradley Ladewig) as the main coordinator.

LuxHyVal is expected to make an important contribution to decarbonise the industrial hydrogen consumption oft he country, using 100% renewable electricity to produce green hydrogen.

The 6 MW electrolyser facility at the heart oft he project is expected tob e built in the industrial park of Bascharage.

Enovos and LuxEnergie intend to ensure the production of up to 1,750 kg of green hydrogen per day. From 2026, this will be used in the mobility sector, with the bus companies Sales-Lentz and TICE converting part of their fleet to fuel cell hydrogen buses.  In addition, industrial partner Ceratizit can replace the hydrogen produced from natural gas with green hydrogen.

With an overall budget of 39 million euros, LuxHyVal is expected to be funded through 8 million euros from the Clean Hydrogen Joint Undertaking, a European Union public-private partnership supporting research and innovation in hydrogen technologies, as well as contributions from the corporate partners, while pursuing further public and private funding opportunities. A final investment decision regarding the main capital investment for the project is expected at the beginning of 2025.
