LH2 and px Group officials at the signing

px Group, the operator of several key UK and European infrastructure sites, has acquired a majority stake in LIFTE H2, the Germany-based one-stop shop for hydrogen engineering solutions.

LIFTE H2 is committed to driving Europe’s green transition by engineering and delivering simple, safe and affordable hydrogen infrastructure solutions.

The company guides its customers through every phase of their hydrogen transition, from generating hydrogen via electrolysis to its utilisation in sectors like heavy transport.

LIFTE’s executives and engineers bring extensive expertise in hydrogen technology, having previously worked on hydrogen and renewable energy projects for firms such as Shell, Uniper, E.ON, RWE, Siemens Energy, and TÜV SÜD.

Recognised as a reliable collaborator within the European hydrogen landscape, LIFTE H2 maintains active roles in prominent industry bodies and associations, including Clean Energy Partnership, Hydrogen Europe, Deutsches Institut für Normung, and Clean Port & Logistics, reinforcing our commitment to sustainable progress.

px Group and LIFTE H2 share a long-term vision for the role of sustainable infrastructure in the energy sector.

px Group says there are opportunities to bolster LIFTE H2’s engineering team with its own engineering and operations expertise, as well as a potential to bring LIFTE H2’s hydrogen development knowledge to the UK to accelerate the applications of hydrogen in the UK.

Together px Group and LIFTE H2 engineering team have 250 capable engineers for various hydrogen and energy transition projects.

Geoff Holmes, CEO of px Group, adds: "LIFTE H2’s ambitious team has built an industry-renowned and industry-trusted business from scratch. Its commitment to safe, simple and affordable solutions fits closely with px Group’s commitments, and we’re looking forward to growing together."

Murat Aydemir, px Group’s Managing Director for Germany, said: "With px engineering and LIFTE H2 together, we look forward to delivering engineering solutions to support even more hydrogen and energy transition projects."
