Airbus, Air Liquide and VINCI Airports, three key players in the aviation, hydrogen and airport industries, are functioning together to market the use of hydrogen at airports and construct the European airport network to accommodate long term hydrogen aircrafts. The airport of Lyon-Saint Exupry (France) will host the to start with installations as early as 2023. This partnership demonstrates the three teams shared ambition to blend their respective knowledge to support the decarbonization of air vacation.

Lyon-Saint Exupry Airport (VINCI Airports heart of excellence for innovation) has been decided on as the pilot airport by the companions. The implementation of this challenge features several phases:

&#13

  • From 2023: deployment of a hydrogen gas distribution station at Lyon-Saint Exupry airport. This station will provide the two the airports ground cars (airside buses, vehicles, handling equipment, and so forth.) and those people of its associates, as nicely as the weighty goods vehicles that travel close to the airport. This initially stage is essential to test the airports services and dynamics as a hydrogen hub in its area of arrive at.
  • Concerning 2023 and 2030: deployment of liquid hydrogen infrastructures that will let hydrogen to be provisioned into the tanks of long run plane.
  • Past 2030: deployment of the hydrogen infrastructure from production to mass distribution of liquid hydrogen at the airport.

By 2030, the 3 companions will research the possibility of equipping VINCI Airports European airport community with the hydrogen creation, storage and offer amenities required for use on the floor and on board plane.

This partnership illustrates the partners shared dedication to decarbonizing air vacation and is a main step ahead for the development of hydrogen across the airport ecosystem. It relies on the know-how of Airbus in industrial aircraft, on Air Liquides experience in mastering the entire hydrogen benefit chain (production, liquefaction, storage and distribution) and on the international attain of VINCI Airports, the primary private airport operator with 45 airports in 12 nations, which will help build the preferred network.
