MagniX & Universal Hydrogen plan FC aeroplane - electrive.com


Press release

https://www.electrive.com/2020/09/16/magnix-universal-hydrogen-plan-fc-aeroplane/ 



The US specialist for electric aircraft drives MagniX has entered into a partnership with the company Universal Hydrogen. Universal Hydrogen is developing a conversion kit for the propulsion system to install in a 40-seater aircraft.

The aircraft concerned is a De Havilland Canada DHC8-Q300 – a regional aircraft that is used worldwide. The turboprop aircraft, often colloquially called 'Dash 8', has meanwhile been sold as Bombardier Q8 and is also in service in Europe.

According to MagniX, the new partner Universal Hydrogen is currently developing a hydrogen fuel cell electric propulsion system, which will be offered as a conversion kit for the Dash 8. The kit should be applicable to the ATR42 family, a comparable regional aircraft of the French-Italian manufacturer consortium Avions de Transport Régional.

Technical data to the fuel cell system has not yet been revealed by the companies. According to the press release, the partners are developing "a solution for a truly carbon-free flight" and this will come "sooner than you think". So far no other information about the construction, performance or weight of the system has been provided.

This may also be due to the fact that Universal Hydrogen was only founded this year with the aim of "solving the carbon crisis in the aviation industry by making hydrogen the universal fuel for carbon-free air travel". The company apparently relies on "its unique storage and transportation methods". In this way, the company hopes to overcome the lack of a "cost-effective infrastructure for hydrogen transport and distribution". The conversion kit for the Dash 8 is primarily intended to increase the market acceptance of hydrogen in aviation. However, there are also no details about the "unique storage and transport methods".

Some basic information on the propulsion system is provided: "Universal Hydrogen's plan for the Dash 8 includes a two-megawatt class electric propulsion system on each wing, which will be provided by magniX." MagniX refers to the successful electric flights of Harbour Air's seaplane in December 2019 or a converted Cessna Grand Caravan 208B, which flew purely electrically in May 2020. With the Dash 8, MagniX now wants to get closer to commercial e-flights with regional passenger aircraft. However, the company itself is not yet able to say when the conversion kit will be offered.

Paul Eremenko, co-founder and CEO of Universal Hydrogen, is also dampening hopes for an early series production. "Clearly there is still a lot to be done in terms of reducing emissions from commercial aviation, and the future of the industry lies in hydrogen-based, carbon-free energy," Eremenko says.

"Universal Hydrogen, through its hydrogen transport and distribution infrastructure solution, is on a path to change the way regional flight is achieved and transform it from being powered by decades-old, expensive, polluting technology to low-cost clean solutions," says Roei Ganzarski, CEO of magniX. "Together, we will bring scalable, proven technology to the next level of electric aviation".

Talgo chooses Extremadura to present its innovative hydrogen propulsion system

 press release


  • It will be the first prototype in Spain

  • Hydrogen technology is an emission-free alternative for non-electrified lines, where diesel trains are now operating

  • The system has been presented in Don Benido, Badajoz, within the framework of the SOI H2 Conference, on the possibilities that hydrogen technologies present in the Southwest of the Iberian Peninsula (SoI)

T

Hydrogen-powered trains

This innovative system uses hydrogen batteries that provide the energy for the train's electric motors. It is powered by renewable energy sources, such as solar photovoltaic or wind, which produce hydrogen that is stored and then used to power fuel cell-based propulsion systems, such as the one designed by Talgo.  The system is complemented by batteries that increase the speed of the train when it starts, taking advantage of the braking system to recharge it.

Unlike the extended battery systems in the automotive industry, hydrogen (H2) technology is the logical answer to the needs of heavy transport and, in particular, of those railway lines that do not have catenary electrification systems, and which today depend on trains powered by diesel engines. The hydrogen system designed by Talgo enables conventional network lines to be "electrified" without the need for costly and lengthy adaptation operations, and without the use of fossil fuels.

 

 

Green Extremadura



Spain's leading high-speed train manufacturer has selected Extremadura as part of a broader strategy that recognizes the efforts of Extremadura's civil society, business and regional public administrations to innovate and accelerate a transition to completely decarbonized transport networks.

The choice of Extremadura has to do not only with the type of existing infrastructure but also with the fact that it is one of the Spanish regions that have expressed a more decisive commitment to the creation and regeneration of industrial networks based on the local production of hydrogen. 

 

 

About Talgo


Talgo S.A., is the leading company in the design, manufacture and maintenance of high-speed light trains with industrial presence in seven countries: Spain, Germany, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Russia, Saudi Arabia and the United States. The company is recognized worldwide for its innovative capacity, unique and distinctive technology and reliability. Talgo is the train supplier for the "Haramain" high-speed railway project between Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia, and counts the German, American and Russian railway administrations among its customers. 

 

 

About the SOI H2 Project


The SOI H2 Project is a transversal initiative driven by both the public and private sectors to make the Hydrogen industry a vector of socio-economic development in the Southwest of the Iberian Peninsula. This project has the direct support of LLOABRE, ADRAL and Fundecyt- PCTEX (Junta de Extremadura), which estimates at 50,000 the number of jobs that could be created in the Euroregion ALEX (Alentejo + Extremadura).

Airbus reveals new zero-emission concept aircraft - Innovation - Airbus

lunes, 21 de septiembre de 2020

https://www.airbus.com/newsroom/press-releases/en/2020/09/airbus-reveals-new-zeroemission-concept-aircraft.html


 Toulouse, 21 September 2020 - Airbus has revealed three concepts for the world's first zero-emission commercial aircraft which could enter service by 2035. These concepts each represent a different approach to achieving zero-emission flight, exploring various technology pathways and aerodynamic configurations in order to support the Company's ambition of leading the way in the decarbonisation of the entire aviation industry.

All of these concepts rely on hydrogen as a primary power source - an option which Airbus believes holds exceptional promise as a clean aviation fuel and is likely to be a solution for aerospace and many other industries to meet their climate-neutral targets.

"This is a historic moment for the commercial aviation sector as a whole and we intend to play a leading role in the most important transition this industry has ever seen. The concepts we unveil today offer the world a glimpse of our ambition to drive a bold vision for the future of zero-emission flight," said Guillaume Faury, Airbus CEO. "I strongly believe that the use of hydrogen - both in synthetic fuels and as a primary power source for commercial aircraft - has the potential to significantly reduce aviation's climate impact."  

The three concepts - all codenamed "ZEROe" - for a first climate neutral zero-emission commercial aircraft include: 


 

 A turbofan design (120-200 passengers) with a range of 2,000+ nautical miles, capable of operating transcontinentally and powered by a     modified gas-turbine engine running on hydrogen, rather than jet fuel, through combustion. The liquid hydrogen will be stored and             distributed via tanks located behind the rear pressure bulkhead. 

 

 


 

 A turboprop design (up to 100 passengers) using a turboprop engine instead of a turbofan and also powered by hydrogen combustion in   modified gas-turbine engines, which would be capable of traveling more than 1,000 nautical miles, making it a perfect option for short-   haul trips.



 

 A "blended-wing body" design (up to 200 passengers) concept in which the wings merge with the main body of the aircraft with a range   similar to that of the turbofan concept. The exceptionally wide fuselage opens up multiple options for hydrogen storage and distribution,   and for cabin layout. 


"These concepts will help us explore and mature the design and layout of the world's first climate-neutral, zero-emission commercial aircraft, which we aim to put into service by 2035," said Guillaume Faury. "The transition to hydrogen, as the primary power source for these concept planes, will require decisive action from the entire aviation ecosystem. Together with the support from government and industrial partners we can rise up to this challenge to scale-up renewable energy and hydrogen for the sustainable future of the aviation industry."

In order to tackle these challenges, airports will require significant hydrogen transport and refueling infrastructure to meet the needs of day-to-day operations. Support from governments will be key to meet these ambitious objectives with increased funding for research & technology, digitalisation, and mechanisms that encourage the use of sustainable fuels and the renewal of aircraft fleets to allow airlines to retire older, less environmentally friendly aircraft earlier. 

Note to editors: To evaluate and validate these new concept aircraft and assess whether they could be matured into viable future products, Airbus will be focusing its efforts on a number of technological pathways. Grazia Vittadini, Chief Technology Officer, Jean-Brice Dumont, EVP Engineering and Glenn Llewellyn, VP Head of Zero Emission Aircraft, will reveal Airbus' technology roadmap for 2020-2025 at 14:00 CEST, 21 September 2020 during a virtual event on Airbus social media channels.

The L-39NG aircraft has received its type certificate

 

press release






AERO Vodochody AEROSPACE and its strategic partner OMNIPOL announced that the L-39NG aircraft has received its type certificate. Based on the positive results of ground and flight tests, the certification was issued by the Military Aviation Authority of the Ministry of Defence of the Czech Republic.

The new aircraft, which continues in the tradition of the legendary L-39 Albatros training aircraft, received its type certification less than two years after roll out of the first prototype.

The type certificate means that the aircraft is now eligible to operate in international air space and meets all safety requirements. It is also an important prerequisite for deliveries to customers. The L-39NG is one of the first military aircraft which has been certified to the new supranational military standards (EMAR 21 and EMACC), which means that its certification is recognized by all EU and NATO military authorities. The certification of the aircraft proceeded according to plan. As part of the tests, Aero performed about 300 test flights on two flying prototypes, and extensive ground tests on two static prototypes.

It is the completion of 13 years with Penta as the single shareholder of Aero Vodochody. "This is a turning point, an extraordinary success for Aero employees, which proves that bringing production of a new Czech designed and developed military aircraft back to Aero was the right decision. The current investment in the project has exceeded CZK 2 billion, and it represents the basis for a good future of the company,” said Marek Dospiva, co-owner of Penta Investments.

"This is great news for the L-39NG and for the entire Czech aviation industry. Receiving a type certificate is an important step in the development of the aircraft and at the same time, it is an important message for our customers. I would like to thank all those who contributed to this exceptional success," added Jiří Podpěra, President of Omnipol, which is the strategic partner in this new aircraft project.

“This milestone is our important news for the traditional NATO Days in Ostrava, as we promised it last year. The L-39NG is a completely new aircraft excelling all current and future requirements for modern training of pilots coupled with very competitive cost of ownership. We believe that the certification will significantly contribute to future orders, which we will be able to announce soon. My sincere thanks to all employees, suppliers and partners for their professional efforts and excellent collaboration," said Dieter John, President and CEO of Aero Vodochody.

The development of the aircraft does not end with obtaining a type certificate. Further improvements and expansion of capabilities according to customer requirements will be gradually added to the certification process.

The brand new L-39NG jet aircraft is a joint project of Aero Vodochody, its shareholder Penta Investments, and the OMNIPOL group, which is the strategic partner and equal co-owner of the L-39NG project. Based on an Agreement signed in June 2020, Penta Investments will hand over Aero Vodochody to its new owners, represented by OMNIPOL with 49% and Hungarian businessman András Tombor with 51%.

The L-39NG aircraft will once again be present at NATO Days. This time, both flight prototypes will appear – one on a static display in the VIP zone, the other at the beginning of Saturday's flight demonstration.
L-39NG

The L-39NG aircraft is a modern and effective light jet capable to serve in a role of light attack and/or unified, comprehensive training system for modern air forces. The L-39NG is based on the aerodynamic concept of the current L-39 with optimized features to reduce resistance and increase efficiency and utilizes the latest technologies and equipment. Power is provided by the modern FJ44-4M engine supplied with the TAP Blue engine support service to ensure unprecedented airworthiness and predictable maintenance costs. The aircraft's avionics are prepared to train future pilots of 4th and 5th generation aircraft and can be tailored to the customer's requirements. The L-39NG is equipped with five hard-points for weapons. The aircraft also features a broad range of simulation technologies, including the integration into high-tech tactical simulation centres with the goal to increase training efficiency. Strategic partner of the L-39NG project is the Czech company OMNIPOL by having 50% of share and financial contribution in the project.

Exosonic Awarded Contract to Develop Low-Boom Supersonic Executive Transport Aircraft Concept for US






press release







Artist concept of Exosonic’s low boom supersonic airliner converted into an executive transport aircraft. Note: the above image does not represent Exosonic’s current configuration for proprietary concerns.



Los Angeles, California – Exosonic, a low-boom supersonic aircraft manufacturer, has partnered with the U.S. Air Force's Presidential and Executive Airlift Directorate (PE) to develop a supersonic executive transport. Exosonic’s aircraft can provide top US leaders and diplomats rapid transportation around the world to meet with world leaders or react to developing situations on the ground. By utilizing Exosonic's boom softening techniques, the passengers can travel overland and overwater at supersonic speeds, pending regulations, to roughly reduce their cruise times in half compared to existing aircraft.



In response to Exosonic’s award, Brig. Gen. Britton, Program Executive Officer of PE stated, “The Presidential and Executive Airlift Directorate is extremely excited to team with Exosonic on our quest to transform the future of executive airlift. As always, we are proud to be leading the charge to deliver cutting-edge technology to the world. Transporting key decision makers and teams around the world in half the time can be the difference between success and failure. Exosonic is a key player in getting us there. By teaming with industry, we are proving the United States Air Force can deliver technology leaps while maximizing return on taxpayer investment.”



PE’s contract, sponsored by the Air Force Research Lab, will support Exosonic’s efforts to develop and modify the company’s commercial supersonic airliner to serve as an executive transport vehicle. These modifications will include reconfiguring the aircraft cabin to include the required accommodations, communications equipment, and security measures that allow US leaders and their guests to work and rest onboard the aircraft.



“The future for global rapid passenger travel is low-boom supersonic flight. Low boom allows travelers to fly at supersonic speeds without generating disruptive booms for those on the ground,” said Norris Tie, CEO of Exosonic. “Exosonic is excited to win this contract as it represents not only commercial but government promise for low-boom supersonic travel.”



In partnership with the U.S. Air Force, Exosonic will continue to develop technology that will not only advance the critical missions of our nation but also enhance our commercial abilities to bring quiet supersonic travel to all.



About Exosonic

Exosonic is an early-stage company developing a Mach 1.8, 5000 nmi range, 70 passenger supersonic airliner to fly overland with a muted boom. Exosonic believes that low-boom supersonic flight will be the next inflection point in commercial aviation, allowing people to fly around the world in roughly half the time.
