Airbus unveils hydrogen engines to be tested on the A380
The turboprop-like engine will convert hydrogen into electricity to power itself.
“Fuel cells are a potential solution to help us achieve our zero-emission ambition and we are focused on developing and testing this technology to understand if it is feasible and viable for a 2035 entry-into-service of a zero-emission aircraft,” said Glenn Llewellyn, the Vice President of Zero-Emission Aircraft at Airbus. According to Llewellyn, such technology-based engines “may be able to power a one hundred passenger aircraft with a range of approximately 1,000 nautical miles”.
