H2V is launching a renewable hydrogen production project with the E-LOG’IN 4 syndicate and Sodevam on a former brownfield site in Thionville.
The aim of the H2V Thionville project is to develop a renewable hydrogen production gigafactory on a 31-hectare site, which will house four 100MW production units in the Parc à Fonte area, designed to produce 56,000 tonnes of renewable hydrogen a year by water electrolysis and avoid 400,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions. This project represents an investment of €500 million and will help generate 120 direct jobs and 100 indirect jobs. Commissioning of the first phase is scheduled for 2026.
Renewable hydrogen is a completely clean fuel, emitting zero pollution, either when produced or when used. It is intended for travel and transport purposes, providing fuel for boats, trucks, utility vehicles at airports and on rail networks. As part of a global circular economy plan, the oxygen that is released when producing hydrogen can be reused by the nearby wastewater treatment plant.
E-LOG’IN 4 is a multimodal industrial logistics hub with a surface area of over 200 hectares. Its location at the Port of Thionville-Illange gives it direct access to motorways, a connection to the international rail network and quays along a waterway. Project leaders have the benefit of a high-quality infrastructure to meet the needs of multimodal logistics providers, facilitating good connections, whether between road and rail or road-rail-waterway and road-waterway, as well as an air freight support base.
The various combined forms of transport are organised in such a way as to suit the specific constraints of industrial operators and logistics companies acting on behalf of their customers, whether in the automotive sector, consumer goods, electronics or industry. E-LOG’IN 4 seeks to promote 4 major sectors of activity: sustainable development, distribution, logistics and renewable energy.
