Aeristech joins H2GEAR, collaborating to develop a ground-breaking hydrogen propulsion system powering aircraft

“This is a truly ground-breaking programme for hydrogen technology”

£54M collaborative H2GEAR programme to push hydrogen technology and accelerate aerospace decarbonisation to zero emissions Public-private investment and collaboration aims to create more than 3,000 UK roles Entry-into-service of hydrogen-powered aircraft could be as early as 2026 Project maintains GKN Aerospace’s position at forefront of next generation of sustainable aircraft technology GKN Aerospace will lead a ground-breaking UK collaboration programme, called H2GEAR, to develop the company’s first hydrogen propulsion system for sub-regional aircraft. Hydrogen is expected to play a key role in the decarbonisation strategy of aviation as it can power aircraft efficiently, leaving water as the only by-product. H2GEAR puts GKN Aerospace at the heart of the technology developments needed for the future of more sustainable aviation. The technology will first focus on significantly improving sub-regional aircraft hydrogen powered performance, […]
