    GKN Aerospace Test Hydrogen Fuel System Demonstrator

    Strategic Research Institute
    Published on :
    22 Nov, 2022, 6:09 am

    GKN Aerospace has successfully achieved a major milestone delivering a ground-based demonstrator of a liquid hydrogen aircraft fuel system. The demonstrator was designed, built and tested in collaboration with Filton Systems Engineering, under the Innovate UK-funded Safe Flight project. The goal of the project was to investigate the feasibility of using a liquid hydrogen fuel source to increase the endurance of a search and rescue uncrewed aerial system concept.

    The project enabled GKN to understand and address many of the safety concerns raised by the introduction of such a novel fuel. Integrated fuel tank design and distribution solutions were developed, including vaporisation and conditioning of the liquid hydrogen. The performance of the fuel system was verified by coupling it with a proton exchange membrane fuel cell stack, representative of the type that could be installed on a future zero emission aircraft. The project demonstrated successful storage and management of liquid hydrogen, supplying the fuel cell power system with hydrogen at the required temperature and pressure over a range of electrical loads typical of a UAS search and rescue mission.

    Key outcomes of the project include development of safe system design, manufacturing knowledge, operational knowledge for liquid hydrogen fuel systems, hydrogen fuel system test data, and an adaptable test rig suited to further study of hydrogen components and subsystems.

    The Safe Flight project has positioned GKN Aerospace for larger and more complex demonstrations of hydrogen-powered aircraft in the future, as the company continues to pursue its mission to become “the most trusted and sustainable partner in the sky”.

    EnBW and Siemens Energy are jointly driving the trend of using green hydrogen as a climate-friendly fuel in future power plants. One important pilot project is the EnBW district heating power plant in Stuttgart-Münster, Germany, where natural gas is expected to initially replace coal in approximately three years.

    All systems are constructed from the very beginning in such a way that the natural gas can be replaced with hydrogen as quickly and completely as possible. Two cutting-edge SGT-800 gas turbines from Siemens Energy are at the heart of the installation. The agreement on the overall package was sealed today in Stuttgart. The project in the Baden-Württemberg capital is thus taking on a pioneering role nationwide.

    The two new turbines each have an electrical output of 62 megawatts and a downstream waste heat recovery system. They are replacing the three coal-fired boilers that have been at the location until now. The project teams at both companies are also planning for hydrogen’s future beyond the gas turbines.In the agreements, Siemens Energy provides assurance that the new turbines will be able to process up to a 75 percent hydrogen admixture from the time they’re shipped in 2025, and the overall package is prepared to handle 100 percent hydrogen.

    The plans for the overall project in Münster are currently on schedule. Progress is already being made on building a new workshop building that will provide space for the actual construction site. Once all the approvals have been obtained, the work on the new systems could begin in the first quarter of 2023.

    The European Union and Egypt have taken a further step to boost their long-term cooperation on the clean energy transition by establishing a strategic partnership on renewable hydrogen and preparing the ground for a just energy transition in Egypt

    The "strategic partnership" does not yet contain binding commitments, but both sides expressed in the memorandum that they see a "key contributor" for hydrogen made with electricity from renewable sources to reduce emissions and ensure energy security. The clean energy source will become increasingly significant in the coming years for European industry, sustainable economic growth and job creation, which needs to become more sustainable.

    Hydrogen can replace fossil fuels such as natural gas in many processes. The EU said it is also crucial to reduce Europe's dependence on Russian fossil fuels. The latter simultaneously pledged an investment of up to €35 grant for this initiative to the EBRD under the EU's Economic and Investment Plan for the Southern Neighbourhood.

    ’Amerikanen kapen met miljarden schone Europese waterstof weg’

    35 min geleden

    AMSTERDAM - Nederland en Europa dreigen de concurrentieslag met de Verenigde Staten om waterstof als brandstof van de toekomst te verliezen. Nederlandse producenten overwegen opening van vestigingen in de Verenigde Staten. „Hun belastingvoordeel is simpel en gewoon veel te groot vergeleken met Europa.”

    Waterstof, zoals in auto’s, in Europa nog maar aan het begin van zijn opmars. ANP/HH

    Topman en oprichter Occo Roelofsen van het bedrijf Power2X rekent het even snel voor. „Met steun die je via de Amerikaanse Inflation Reduction Act krijgt, gaat je kostprijs voor groene waterstof $3 per kilo omlaag. Groen opgewekte waterstof kost tussen bij ons tussen €3 en €6, nu de dollar bijna net zoveel waard is als de euro, zakt door die Amerikaanse subsidie je kostprijs drastisch. Amerika geeft zulke subsidie ook op andere nieuwe brandstoffen zoals groene ammonia.”

    Waterstof knalt als energiebron in Nederland

    Groene waterstof wordt opgewekt door zon- en windparken en heeft nauwelijks CO2-uitstoot. De Amerikaanse subsidie geldt per 1 januari voor bedrijven met een Amerikaanse thuisbasis. Meer ondernemers zien dat Nederlandse bedrijven er kantoren opzetten. „Het zijn vooral grote investeerders daarachter die hun belang verplaatsen. Ze bouwen daar aan enorme projecten, dat trekt alle slimme jongens en meiden die kant op”, zegt een investeerder op anonieme basis. „Dat is heel slecht voor Nederland, waar we het best goed doen met groene waterstof.”

    De IRA-subsidie maakt onder andere Amerikaanse waterstof veel goedkoper in de verkoop. Europese bedrijven die, worstelend met klimaatakkoorden, zulke schonere brandstof zonder CO2-uitstoot gaan invoeren zullen vrijwel zeker de Amerikaanse variant importeren, zegt Roelofsen. „Het belastingvoordeel is gewoon veel te groot.”

    Roelofsen zelf zit nota bene vooraan in de Europese ontwikkeling. Zijn bedrijf werkt in het consortium MadoquaPower2X met €1 miljard aan kapitaal met Denen en Portugezen aan grootschalige productie van groene waterstof en ammoniak in het Portugese Sines. „Wij blijven in Nederland. Maar we overwegen wel om in de VS een vestiging op te zetten, we kijken naar de kansen daar”, zegt Roelofsen.

    Gascrisis geeft Fugro meer werk dan alleen maar windmolenaanleg

    „Het is echt een serieus probleem”, zegt energiespecialist René Peters van TNO. „Die Amerikaanse subsidie van 60% op een kilo waterstof is veel. En dan nog een factor vijf erbij als je grondstoffen in de VS. Ja, dat is substantieel. Europa heeft met zijn windparken een goede subsidieregeling opgezet, die heel veel oplevert voor onze energie. Nederland en Europa hebben grote ambities. Het is de vraag of dat met waterstof gaat lukken.”

    Vondst TNO doorbraak waterstofproductie windparken

    Machiel Mulder, hoogleraar energie-economie aan de Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, kijkt naar de totale kosten. „Het profiteren van Amerikaanse subsidie en dan goedkope waterstof hierheen halen is natuurlijk de goedkoopste oplossing voor de BV Nederland. Want dat bespaart subsidies. Ik vraag me af of het verschil in subsidies zo groot is dat het compenseert voor het omzetten van waterstof en transportkosten. Want die zijn hoog. Ik denk dat de hoogte van de elektriciteitsprijs in Europa ook een rol speelt, waardoor waterstof hier maken nu heel duur is.”

    De Nederlandse productie in waterstof groeit bij alle ambities niet snel genoeg, constateert directeur Olof van der Gaag van de Nederlandse Vereniging Duurzame Energie (NVDE). Er is voor 42 megawattuur capaciteit aan subsidies ingediend. „De weg naar de gewenste 8 gigawatt is nog lang. Veel partijen hier willen graag aan de slag. Wij zien de VS eerder als goed voorbeeld om snel te volgen dan direct een bedreiging”, aldus Van der Gaag, die pleit voor ’duidelijkheid’ in subsidies.

    Onderzoeker: ’Nederland kan profiteren van overgang naar schonere energie’

    Ondernemers prijzen het duidelijke investeringsbeleid van de Amerikaanse president Biden. De IRA-steun is $369 miljard groot. De Democraat kondigde in augustus „bij heldere voorwaarden, relatief eenvoudig opvraagbare subsidies voor innovaties” aan, oordeelt Hyung-Ja de Zeeuw, specialist in energietransitie bij RaboResearch. „De subsidieregelingen zitten veel eenvoudiger in elkaar, zeker als je dat vergelijkt met Europa. Ook hier in Europa wordt aan een subsidieregeling voor waterstof gewerkt, maar die zal veel complexer in elkaar zitten. Bovendien zal de Europese subsidie alleen gelden voor groene waterstof. In de VS is er ook subsidie beschikbaar voor blauwe waterstof, waarbij er niet nul, maar een klein beetje emissies vrijkomen.”

    In Brussel steggelen partijen over nieuwe voorstellen. Ook in Nederland is er irritatie, minister Jetten (Energie) dringt aan op vaart. De Fransen spelen al met maatregelen tegen de VS die ’discrimineert’. De protectionistische Biden geeft steun aan alleen ’Amerikaanse’ investeerders en producenten, is de klacht. Van Brussel krijgen multinationals uit andere werelddelen ook subsidie voor duurzamere productie in Europa.

    Grootste uitstoter Tata Steel krijgt minder stikstofruimte

    „Amerika gaat heel snel en pakt door. Brussel doet aan gold plating, het moet honderd procent perfect geregeld. Met zulke nieuwe technologie moet je soms zeggen: begin ermee, zet piketpaaltjes, scherp de regels later aan maar hou tempo. Ik vrees dat Europese producenten eerst in de Verenigde Staten gaan kijken”, aldus De Zeeuw.

    „Omdat de Amerikaanse markt zo enorm groot is, voorzie ik dat we in Europa op een grote afstand voor nieuwe industrie infrastructuur en technologie komen”, zegt producent Roelofsen.

    At a meeting at the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference COP27 in Sharm El-Sheikh in Egypt, MAN Energy Solutions, along with leading organisations across the shipping value-chain and the largest producers of green hydrogen, signed a ‘Joint Statement on Green Hydrogen and Green Shipping’. The document commits all signatories to the rapid adoption of green hydrogen-based fuels during the current decade in order to achieve the full decarbonisation by 2050 of the shipping sector, one that currently accounts for 3% of global greenhouse gas emissions. It also calls on policymakers to match these ambitious targets.

    Signatories have agreed to pursue cross-sector collaboration to achieve:

    Commercially-viable, zero-emission, deep-sea vessels from 2030 with the intention of using exclusively zero-emission-powered ocean-freight services by 2040

    Scaling-up of green hydrogen production to 5.5 million tons per year by 2030

    Full decarbonisation of the shipping sector by 2050 at the latest

    They also called upon international authorities and national governments to support private-sector commitments with a correspondingly ambitious policy, and specifically asked the International Maritime Organization and member states to commit to a 100% emissions reduction within the maritime sector by 2050 with robust, interim targets.

    The Joint Statement was facilitated by Climate Change ‘High-Level Champions’ – UN nominees that connect governmental work with the voluntary and collaborative initiatives taken by cities, regions, businesses and investors – and nonprofit energy organisation, RMI. Besides MAN Energy Solutions, it was also signed by – among others – the Aspen Institute, the Global Maritime Forum’s Getting to Zero Coalition, the Green Hydrogen Catapult, InterContinental Energy, and A.P.

    Hydrogen Produced from Natural Gas Cuts Emissions

    Strategic Research Institute
    Published on :
    28 Nov, 2022, 4:30 am

    The American Petroleum Institute last month released new analysis on the benefits of low-carbon hydrogen produced from natural gas. The study, commissioned by API and conducted by ICF, found that hydrogen produced from natural gas with carbon capture and produced from electricity and other energy sources could eliminate an additional 180 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions on average per year through 2050 and save over USD 450 billion cumulatively through 2050 when hydrogen incentives are uniformly provided based on a per ton of GHG emissions reduced.

    API analysis of the study’s finding show that uniform incentives for producing hydrogen from natural gas, electricity and other energy sources are critical to meeting the US Department of Energy goal of 50 MMT of clean hydrogen produced by 2050, as laid out in the recently published National Clean Hydrogen Strategy and Roadmap.

    Highlights from the report include:

    Larger Hydrogen Market: When every ton of emission reductions are incentivized the same, the U.S. hydrogen market could be three times larger by 2050 than when emission reductions are treated unequally (i.e., hydrogen market could be 15% of total end use energy consumption in 2050 versus 4% of total end use energy consumption in 2050).

    Larger GHG Emission Reductions: The larger hydrogen economy resulting from uniform incentives could avoid an additional 183 million metric tons of US GHG emissions on average per year through 2050 than if incentives were unevenly implemented by taking advantage of low-cost options, like hydrogen produced from natural gas with carbon capture. Enabling incentives for all hydrogen production is equivalent to eliminating the emissions from more than 38 million cars annually, according to API analysis.

    Less Costly Emission Reductions: Uniform incentives could reduce the cost of mitigating a metric ton of carbon by an average of 12% annually over the study period, saving over $450 billion cumulatively through 2050.

    The study found that critical hydrogen infrastructure, like hydrogen storage, pipelines and local distribution systems, will be required to unleash hydrogen’s potential to contribute to significant GHG emissions reductions. Capital investment in hydrogen infrastructure projects could exceed USD 400 billion by 2050 and include the construction of 67,000 miles of hydrogen transmission pipeline, 500,000 miles of customer laterals and local distribution company pipeline/service lines, and 560 trillion Btu of hydrogen underground storage capacity.

    EasyJet voert eerste test uit met vliegtuigmotor op waterstof
    Artikel van ANP Producties • 3 uur geleden

    AMESBURY (ANP) - Luchtvaartmaatschappij easyJet en vliegtuigmotorbouwer Rolls-Royce hebben naar eigen zeggen voor het eerst succesvol een vliegtuigmotor getest die draait op waterstof. Het betrof een grondtest met een concept van een vliegtuigmotor die op groene waterstof draait, opgewekt uit wind- en getijde-energie. Die laatste vorm van energie wordt opgewekt uit water dat door eb en vloed aan- en terugtrekt in zogeheten getijdencentrales.

    EasyJet kondigde in september aan miljarden te gaan investeren om de CO2-uitstoot terug te dringen. Waterstoftechnologie moet die uitstoot tegen 2050 met bijna 80 procent hebben teruggedrongen. Ook investeert easyJet de komende jaren 21 miljard euro in nieuwe, zuinigere en stillere vliegtuigen.

    De Europese vliegtuigbouwer Airbus kondigde begin dit jaar aan ook waterstofmotoren te gaan testen, in samenwerking met de Frans-Amerikaanse motorenfabrikant CFM International. De Amerikaanse concurrent Boeing legt de nadruk juist meer op het vliegen met de duurzamere vliegtuigbrandstof SAF.

    Ook KLM wil met SAF de CO2-uitstoot verminderen, met zo’n 75 procent in vergelijking met het fossiele kerosine. Sinds dit jaar voegt de luchtvaartmaatschappij voor elke vlucht die vertrekt vanaf Schiphol een beetje SAF toe aan het brandstofsysteem. Omdat SAF nog niet in grote hoeveelheden beschikbaar is en daardoor een stuk duurder is dan kerosine is vliegen op 100 procent SAF nog niet mogelijk, aldus KLM op zijn website.

    Hydrogen has taken a new step as a for the energy transition thanks to H2SITE in Spain, which has launched the world's first membrane manufacturing plant to obtain hydrogen from ammonia or methanol, and separate hydrogen from low concentration gas blends. The new facility will industrialize the production of membranes, the technological heart of H2SITE, used in the construction of hydrogen production reactors and separators. Similar membranes made of palladium alloys had been so far very costly, fragile, and difficult to manufacture and scale. H2SITE has managed to overcome these obstacles.

    Located in Loiu in Biscay Region of Spain, the new H2SITE plant has a production capacity of tens of thousands of membranes per year. For its construction, H2SITE has invested more than 3 million euros, which it plans to double in the coming years to increase production capacity.

    The membrane separators and reactors will help provide hydrogen with high purity and limited cost, with focus on hard to abate industry sectors and heavy land and maritime mobility.

    H2SITE was created in 2019 and has an exclusive technology of reactors separators for the conversion of different raw materials into hydrogen, among which are ammonia, methanol or synthetic gas, in addition to the separation of hydrogen from gaseous mixtures in low concentration.

    Belfast-based net zero emissions and air quality technology company CATAGEN has launched five new advanced climate technologies which enable the production of green hydrogen and e-fuels that could help industry significantly reduce carbon emissions. CATAGEN also officially launched ClimaHtech, the brand under which it will now go to market.

    In early 2022 CATAGEN received five funding awards from the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy’s Net Zero Innovation Portfolio to help accelerate research and testing of its range of net zero products. Using that funding, in the space of just nine months CATAGEN has developed new ways to generate green hydrogen, bio-hydrogen and e-fuels, as well as complementary systems for carbon capture and hydrogen compression.

    CATAGEN’s Green Hydrogen Generator utilises CATAGEN’s patented recirculating gas reactor technology to create a highly efficient green hydrogen generator. Renewable energy powers the ClimaHtech HGEN to produce green hydrogen with no harmful by-products. CATAGEN do not use electrolysers to free hydrogen. The ClimaHtech HGEN uses a multi-stage chemical process to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. The oxygen produced from the process can be used in other industrial processes or released back into the air. The ClimaHtech system is designed for industry and has multiple benefits:

    Green hydrogen and e-fuels can be used to replace fossil fuels in several key sectors, including Manufacturing, Transport, Power, Mobility and Agriculture. Having delivered prototypes for each of its technologies, CATAGEN is on track to deliver full-scale demonstrators in 2024 and plans to scale the business significantly in the next 3-5 years.

    Founded by Dr Andrew Woods and Prof. Roy Douglas, CATAGEN are experts in thermodynamics and emissions, focused on developing innovative new technologies to create alternatives to fossil fuels for difficult-to-decarbonise sectors.

    Groningen krijgt eerste groene waterstoftreinen van Nederland
    Artikel van admin • Gisteren om 18:18

    Groningen krijgt de eerste groene waterstoftreinen van Nederland. Na een succesvolle proef besloten de provincie en treinvervoerder Arriva om vier treinen aan te schaffen die rijden op waterstof. Vanaf 2027 moeten reizigers de waterstoftreinen kunnen gebruiken.

    © Aangeboden door Change Inc.

    Op dit moment rijden er vooral vervuilende dieseltreinen in de noordelijke provincie. Rijden op duurzame stroom is in deze buitengebieden vaak niet mogelijk, omdat de bovenleidingen ontbreken.

    CO2-vrije treinen op waterstof
    Om toch de CO2-uitstoot van het treinvervoer naar beneden te brengen, wil de provincie Groningen waterstoftreinen inzetten. Wanneer de waterstof gemaakt is uit groene energiebronnen, zoals wind en zon, dan stoot de trein geen CO2 uit.

    In 2020 voerde Arriva testritten uit. Daaruit bleek dat het aantal kilometers waarmee je op waterstof kunt rijden nauwelijks verschilt van diesel. Het tanken van waterstof lijkt iets sneller te zijn en bovendien is een waterstoftrein stiller dan een dieseltrein.

    51 waterstoftreinen
    De aanbesteding van vier waterstoftreinen is het begin van het verwezenlijken van de ambitie om 51 waterstoftreinen te laten rijden in Groningen. De eerste vier treinen worden ingezet op de bestaande trajecten naar Delfzijl en Veendam.

    Wie de vier waterstoftreinen gaat maken, is nog niet bekend. De treinen worden internationaal aanbesteed. Het ministerie van Infrastructuur en Waterstaat stelde vorige week 15 miljoen euro beschikbaar. De rest van de financiering komt uit Brussel en het Nationaal Programma Groningen (NPG).

    Groene in plaats van grijze waterstof
    Treinen die rijden op waterstof zijn niet nieuw. In Duitsland rijden waterstoftreinen al een tijdje rond, maar die gebruiken voor de winning van waterstof aardgas. Geen groene, maar grijze waterstof dus. Een trein die rijdt op groene waterstof in plaats van diesel bespaart volgens ingenieursbureau Arcadis miljoenen kilo’s CO2 per jaar.

    Shell wil vanaf 2025 groene waterstof gebruiken in Pernis
    Artikel van ANP Producties • Gisteren om 14:02
    © ANP

    PERNIS (ANP/BLOOMBERG) - Olie- en gasconcern Shell gaat vanaf 2025 groene waterstof gebruiken bij de verwerking van olie in zijn raffinaderij in Pernis. Daarmee wordt het aardgasverbruik door die raffinaderij verminderd.

    Hernieuwbare waterstof, dat wordt geproduceerd zonder dat daar CO2 bij vrijkomt, zal 5 tot 10 procent van het waterstofverbruik door de fabriek uitmaken. De raffinaderij maakt nu gebruik van 'grijze waterstof', maar die brandstof wordt geproduceerd met aardgas waardoor juist veel CO2 vrijkomt. Eerder werd al bekend dat een groene waterstoffabriek, in aanbouw op de Tweede Maasvlakte, de groene waterstof gaat produceren. De hernieuwbare stroom voor die fabriek komt van een windpark op zee.

    Pernis verwerkt ongeveer 400.000 vaten olie per dag, waarmee de raffinaderij het niveau van Europa’s grootst raffinaderij van oliereus BP in Rotterdam bijna evenaart.

    Shell is ook bezig met initiatieven om de uitstoot op andere plekken te verlagen. Zo heeft het concern plannen om de netto CO2-uitstoot bij zijn grote petrochemische complex in Moerdijk binnen tien jaar te verlagen naar nul. Het bedrijf zet daarbij onder meer in op waterstof en de opvang en opslag van CO2. Shell wil in 2050 helemaal klimaatneutraal zijn.

    According to the terms of the MoU, ACWA Power and PLN will jointly investigate several avenues of partnership which include: a project study for pump storage for a 600-800MW hydroelectricity facility; investigating the possibility of a 4GW battery energy storage system and the development of a green hydrogen/ammonia facility that is powered by hydroelectricity.

    The agreement lays out a clear pipeline of renewable energy and technological development for ACWA Power within the country and involves a clear capacity building mandate for PLN’s employees.

    Indonesia’s National General Energy Plan states that 23% of the country’s power should be generated via renewable energy sources by 2025. PLN is the Republic’s sole buyer of electricity produced by independent power projects, including power produced from renewable energy projects. As of last year, the enterprise owns or operates nearly two-thirds of Indonesia’s power generation industry, which is approximately 65.5GW of electricity.

    ACWA Power entered Indonesia this year, as PLN awarded the company two contracts to develop floating solar photovoltaic plants in October 2022.

    Hydrogen Aviation Lab Unveils Redesigned Hydrogen A320

    Strategic Research Institute

    A decommissioned Airbus A320 is being given a new lease of life in the service of science. The Hydrogen Aviation Lab, Hamburg's new field laboratory for testing maintenance and ground processes for future hydrogen-powered aircraft, was unveiled. German ministry has funded the joint project between Lufthansa Technik, the German Aerospace Center DLR, ZAL Center for Applied Aeronautical Research and Hamburg Airport for repurposed Airbus A320. The presentation of the Hydrogen Aviation Lab also marks the start of the installation of the hydrogen components in the coming months.

    The aviation industry is striving to become climate-neutral, with hydrogen widely expected to play a role as a future energy carrier. This requires not only new aircraft but also new infrastructure on the ground. Hamburg is forging a path towards such a hydrogen infrastructure: Lufthansa Technik, DLR, ZAL and Hamburg Airport have joined forces to design and test maintenance and ground-based processes for hydrogen technology. The project is funded by Hamburg's Ministry of Economic Affairs and Innovation as well as the city's investment and development bank IFB Hamburg.

    Over the next few months, the Hydrogen Aviation Lab will be fitted with a full suite of test systems as well as an internal tank for liquid hydrogen and an onboard fuel cell, paired with supporting ground-based hydrogen infrastructure.

    With the Hydrogen Aviation Lab, the project partners want to prepare for handling and maintenance of hydrogen-powered aircraft, whose entry into service is forecast for the middle of the next decade. Yet the laboratory will also spur on developers of future hydrogen-powered aircraft generations by helping optimise the procedures and safety levels during maintenance work or ground-handling.

    A particularly striking example is refuelling with liquid hydrogen (Liquid H2, or LH2 for short). Using current technology, the refuelling for a long-haul flight could possibly take several hours. Given the pressure on aircraft turnaround times in the airline industry, this would be clearly impracticable. The Hydrogen Aviation Lab is designed to address this and many other areas of research including

    Refuelling with liquid hydrogen

    Cooling, insulation and occupational safety

    Leakage of hydrogen gas, so-called Boil-Off

    Making stored hydrogen inert

    Parallel to research carried out using the physical hardware of the Hydrogen Aviation Lab, the project also involves the creation of a so-called digital twin of the Airbus A320. Therein, simulations will enable researchers to develop and test predictive maintenance methods for the systems and components of future aircraft generations. Using targeted data analyses, failures of hydrogen components and systems could thus be predicted ahead of their failure in the physical system, allowing timely replacements before component failures affect aircraft operation.
