Hylium Industries Demonstrates Hydrogen Powered Drone to NEOM
Hylium Industries and NEOM, in collaboration, achieved a groundbreaking milestone on September 14th with a successful liquid Hydrogen Drone Flight test. This marks a pivotal moment in the pursuit of eco-friendly aerial transportation. NEOM, a visionary project led by Saudi Arabia, aims to be a global hub for innovative urban planning, advanced technology, and green energy solutions. It seeks to redefine cities by integrating AI, biotechnology, and more.
At the core of NEOM’s vision is an unwavering commitment to green technologies, encompassing renewable energy sources and cutting-edge waste management systems. By harmonizing state-of-the-art tech with eco-conscious planning, NEOM aims to show how future cities can thrive sustainably.
Hylium Industries, a leader in sustainable tech, demonstrated the potential of liquid hydrogen as a drone fuel. This offers a promising solution to environmental challenges posed by traditional aviation fuels due to its high energy density and zero-emission properties. This breakthrough has far-reaching implications, not only for drones but for broader aviation segments.
Construction of Jeju Hamdeok Green Hydrogen Charging Station, built by Hylium Industries, Inc. for the first time in Korea
The country’s first Jeju Hamdeok Green Hydrogen Charging Station, built by Hylium Industries, was completed and a green hydrogen bus trial run event was held in Jeju. Green hydrogen refers to zero carbon emissions during the hydrogen production process. Hylium Industries is constructing six hydrogen charging stations across the country, including Busan, Daejeon, and Yeosu, and directly operates a hydrogen charging station in Pyeongtaek.
Hamdeok Green Hydrogen Charging Station uses electricity generated from wind power to produce hydrogen through water electrolysis, transports it to the charging station, and stores it. It can charge 4 buses and 20 passenger cars per hour. Charging is usually completed in 5 to 10 minutes. Green hydrogen buses emit zero environmental pollutants and are perfect for the clean city of Jeju Island. Just as we experienced severe tropical nights this summer, global warming cannot be ignored any longer. The UN Secretary-General said, “We must now move into an era of great energy transition.”
Hylium Industries Redefines Aerial Innovation with Hydrogen-Powered Drone Flight in Essen
During the 22nd German Energy Law Day 2023 in Essen, Hylium Industries achieved a groundbreaking feat in sustainable aerial technology. Their hydrogen-powered drone, weighing over 20 kilograms with a wingspan of about two meters, demonstrated a new era in flight capabilities. What sets it apart is its innovative fuel cell technology, directly converting hydrogen into electrical energy. This allows for an impressive flight duration of up to five hours, surpassing conventional battery-powered drones. These hydrogen-powered drones are poised to revolutionize tasks requiring extended airborne presence, such as pipeline inspections.
Founded in 2014, Hylium Industries leads the way in this transformative technology. They’ve announced plans to establish a European branch in Essen by 2024, strategically bringing their solutions closer to the heart of Europe and advancing the adoption of sustainable aerial technology.
EWG – Essener Wirtschaftsförderung has played a pivotal role in supporting Hylium Industries’ progress through their visionary #HyTechCheck program, aiding the startup in navigating the European market and building crucial connections in the H2 value chain. This collaboration not only facilitates market entry but also enhances Essen’s reputation as a dynamic hub for energy and climate transition.
As the energy capital of Europe, Essen plays a vital role in driving the global energy transition. With support from partners like EWG and the entire hydrogen ecosystem of the MetropoleRuhr, Hylium Industries is set to shape a sustainable and efficient future for aerial technology.
