French commune Villennes-sur-Seine has a very special relationship with the east coast of Scotland. The historic village, located 30km west of Paris, officially twinned with Lower Largo last week.

Fourteen visitors from the French town came to Scotland to find out more about the region they’re now bonded with. As part of their visit, they saw the construction of our hydrogen production and storage facility and demonstration homes in Buckhaven.

The delegation included the Mayor of Villennes-sur-Seine, Jean- Pierre Laigneau and Largo Area Community Council Chairman Matt Allan.

Matt said: “I think that I can sum up the visit with a bit of conversation that I overheard stating that it was ‘amazing that a small country like Scotland can lead the rest of the world with a project like this’.”

Who better to host our guests than Frenchman and H100 Fife Distribution Manager, Maxime Biret. Max is responsible for constructing the 8.2km new hydrogen network, he said: “We were delighted to welcome the Largo Community Council and Villennes-Sur-Seine delegation to our site. We shared valuable insights on our project and showcased our dedication to innovation and excellence.”
