Chart joins Airbus-led liquid hydrogen for aviation consortium



Chart Industries has joined a consortium designed to support the demonstration of small-scale liquid hydrogen aircraft ground operations at European airports.


Led by Airbus, the GOLIAT consortium aims to advance the aviation industry’s adoption of hydrogen by developing and demonstrating refuelling technologies scaled-up for future large commercial aircraft.


It will also work on the standardisation and certification framework needed for future liquid hydrogen operations, whilst also assessing the sizing and economics of the hydrogen value chain for airports.


Chart and Airbus will be joined by TU Delft, Leibniz University Hannover, Royal Schiphol Group, Rotterdam the Hague Airport, Vinci Airports, Stuttgart Airport, H2FLY and Budapest Airport.


“With over 158 years of experience in hydrogen technology, process and equipment, we are excited to share our expertise to further progress the liquid hydrogen application in mobility and transport as well as the associated infrastructure,” explained Jill Evanko, Chart’s CEO and President.


H2FLY’s aircraft took off in Maribor, Slovenia, and used 24kg of liquid hydrogen to power a flight time of around 10 minutes.
