GKN Aerospace leads development of ground-breaking hydrogen propulsion system for aircraft

£54M collaborative H2GEAR programme to push hydrogen technology and accelerate aerospace decarbonisation to zero emissions Public-private investment and collaboration aims to create more than 3,000 UK roles Entry-into-service of hydrogen-powered aircraft could be as early as2026 Project maintains GKN Aerospace’s position at forefront of next generation of  sustainable aircraft technology GKN Aerospace will lead a ground-breaking UK collaboration programme, called H2GEAR, to develop the company’s first hydrogen propulsion system for sub-regional aircraft. Hydrogen is expected to play a key role in the de carbonisation strategy of aviation as it can power aircraft efficiently, leaving water as the only by-product. H2GEAR puts GKN Aerospace at the heart of the technology developments needed for the future of more sustainable aviation. The technology will first focus on significantly improving sub-regional aircraft […]
