PowerCell Sweden AB has received a follow-on order for MS-100 fuel cell systems from the aviation start-up ZeroAvia worth MSEK 5.1. The order is expected to be delivered during the second and third quarter 2021.
In September last year, ZeroAvia conducted the world’s first hydrogen electric flight of a commercial airplane. The plane, a single-engine six-seater Piper Malibu, carried out an eight-minute flight and reached an altitude of 1,000 feet and a speed of 100 knots. The plane had a hydrogen-electric powertrain where an PowerCell MS-100 fuel cell system was an integral part.
ZeroAvia now continues the development of zero emissions aircraft drivetrains by placing a follow-on order for further MS-100 fuel cell systems.
“ZeroAvia has proven that hydrogen-electric and zero emissions flying is a possibility and we have demonstrated that the technology exists here and now and that it is working. The aviation industry is currently going through a phase where different technologies are tested to validate the technology’s possibilities as the fuel cell and hydrogen technologies are expected to play a crucial role for the transformation of the aviation industry”, Andreas Bodén, Director Sales & Marketing PowerCell Sweden AB said.
