This is largest hydrogen engine in history
    It will take years to build, and this is what it will be for

    WORLD  14 June 2024 - 23:04

    EcoNews carries an article about the largest hydrogen engine in history, Caliber.Az reprints the article.

    Fossil fuels are disappearing at an ever-increasing speed (albeit inconsistently and unevenly, depending on the type of transport). Gasoline, various types of gas, and kerosene are running out of space in future mobility. Proof of this (the latest) is the largest hydrogen engine in history, which we will present today. Of course, you won’t believe what it will be used for after years of production.

    The largest-ever hydrogen engine could reach a milestone after years of building. 

    In light of this, any recent growth in Airbus is a significant boost to the future of aviation and people’s welfare with recent innovations in the development of hydrogen-powered engines. The company has been employing and experimenting with numerous configurations and technologies.

    As you may know from previous articles, the intention is to introduce its first hydrogen airplane for commercial use by 2035. Airbus’ hydrogen engine, as described, is a metallic zero-emission propulsion system, which implies that during the actual use of the engine, the system does not release any carbon dioxide.

    The engine in the cars runs on liquid hydrogen as its primary fuel, stored in cryogenic tanks in any aircraft. It would be the perfect alternative to kerosene and the SAF fuel we discussed a few weeks ago. 

    How was it possible to develop the largest hydrogen engine in history?

    Airbus started working on its hydrogen engine some years back and informed the world that it planned to begin its hydrogen aircraft service by 2035. Yet, over the years, Airbus has been exploring different concepts and solutions to introduce hydrogen to its first aircraft.

    Zero-emission commercial aircraft concepts have been designed from the sky with several different aircraft concepts announced in 2020 by Airbus; they named it ZEROe. These concepts introduce different size classes, which come with diverse forms of outer configuration and drive types, all of which work on hydrogen fuel.

    Airbus has been exploring the potential for a one-megawatt-class fuel-cell engine and an associated demonstrator and has been performing initial feasibility and laboratory studies to place this new design in actual flight testing by mid-decade. 

    Airbus’s project goes far beyond “cleaning up” the skies; this is how they want to use hydrogen.

    In January 2024, AIRBUS tested for the first time its prog now hydrogen fuel cell propulsion system called the iron pod, which will be the future hydrogen-propulsion system of the electric Airbus concept aircraft. It even houses the hydrogen fuel cell system and electrical motors for propeller rotation.

    Airbus tests its iron pod, and the power-on is a significant step in the company’s path for deploying the first ZEROe demonstrator with hydrogen propulsion in 2035. The iron pod is a solution that allows for the decarbonization of aviation; increasingly, the industry becomes more sustainable.

    The Airbus hydrogen engine project is a cornerstone of Airbus’s future evolution strategy in the field of aviation. It’s been claimed that the company plans to launch commercially operating hydrogen aircraft in 2035 as it will try to contribute to the market’s shift towards green energy sources.

    The project can still be considered only part of Airbus’ development agenda, though the company is already moving forward. The company has already run the first hydrogen fuel cell propulsion system, and more tests and experiments are nareeeded.

    The first aircraft hydrogen engine could mark a historic milestone in the new mobility, demonstrating that this fuel will not only be for cars. This is similar to what we mentioned several days ago regarding ammonia (conventional and green ammonia), which will not be used exclusively on ships. Of course, fossil fuels have less and less space, and not only because of new government regulations.
