Multi-energy company TotalEnergies (Euronext Paris:TTE) (LON:TTE) (NYSE:TTE) and French industrial gases company Air Liquide (Euronext Paris:AI) announced on Thursday a long-term agreement for green and low carbon hydrogen supply to TotalEnergies' refining and petrochemical platform in Normandy.
This collaboration aligns with both companies' commitment to decarbonizing industrial operations in the Axe Seine corridor. The project's goal is to reduce CO2 emissions at the Gonfreville site by up to 150,000 tons annually.
The agreement covers the delivery of 10,000 tons of green hydrogen per year to the TotalEnergies Normandy platform and up to 5,000 tons per year of low carbon hydrogen, starting from the second half of 2026.
Normand'Hy electrolyzer, a 200 MW capacity facility, will be constructed and operated by Air Liquide and TotalEnergies will have access to half of its production capacity, equivalent to the hydrogen volume needed for its Normandy refinery.
TotalEnergies will provide approximately 700 GWh/year of renewable and low carbon power to Air Liquide's electrolyzer, equating to 100 MW, which corresponds to the hydrogen portion delivered to the TotalEnergies refinery in Normandy.
