Paris will have hydrogen infrastructure at its airports

The main airports serving Paris will receive investments for the installation of a new infrastructure to receive aircraft powered by hydrogen (H2). To this end, Airbus, Air Liquide, a company that operates in the industrial gases segment and Groupe ADP, which manages the airports of Orly (ORY) and Charles de Gaulle (CDG), signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to prepare the basis for the process to be carried out by 2035. Based on the agreement, the production, storage and distribution systems of H2 will be defined, among others, a feasibility plan in order to find a concept for the new infrastructure. The first step will be a study using a representative panel from around thirty airports around the world to assess potential configurations for the production, supply, and distribution of liquid hydrogen. Next, detailed scenarios and plans will be drawn up for Orly and Charles de Gaulle. “We must act now to accelerate the development of the hydrogen sector in order to prepare for the future”, said Matthieu Giard, member of the Executive Committee of the Air Liquide Group and vice president of hydrogen activities. The European community believes that in the next decade the first hydrogen-powered aircraft will be certified. Airbus is working on new concepts and projects that can make the technology viable in the medium term. – https://aeromagazine.uol.com.br/artigo/paris-tera-em-seus-aeroportos-infraestrutura-de-hidrogenio_6797.html
