Universal Hydrogen signs LOIs with 3 carriers for hydrogen-powered aircraft

Icelandair


Universal Hydrogen signed a letter of intent (LOI) with Icelandair Group under which Icelandair and Universal Hydrogen will pursue the implementation of green hydrogen as a propellant for Icelandair’s domestic aircraft fleet.

Universal Hydrogen is enabling this transformation with its aftermarket hydrogen conversion kit for regional aircraft, as well as its fuel distribution system based on modular hydrogen capsule technology.

For Universal Hydrogen and Icelandair, this LOI is the first step of an ambitious multilateral initiative, which requires working with Icelandic hydrogen producers, transportation companies, and airports. In a country with an electricity network powered by renewable energy, this represents an opportunity to decarbonize one of the most challenging industries—aviation.

Given a positive outcome of the project and upon completion of the Dash 8 conversions of the Icelandair domestic fleet, Universal Hydrogen and Icelandair would enter into a long-term fuel services contract to provide cost-effective green hydrogen for Icelandair’s fleet at scale. The net outcome of this relationship is to realize operational efficiencies as sustainability objectives are achieved.



Air Nostrum


Under the terms of the LOI with Air Nostrum, a regional airline based in Valencia, Spain, Air Nostrum would purchase eleven of Universal Hydrogen’s turboprop conversion kits for use across its existing and future fleet. These kits encompass a hydrogen fuel cell and electric motor that replaces the aircraft’s existing turboprop engine. They also provide for compatibility with Universal Hydrogen’s modular hydrogen capsule technology that allows for the delivery of hydrogen to any airport without any purpose-built infrastructure.

Alongside the aircraft conversions, Universal Hydrogen would become Air Nostrum’s long-term green hydrogen service provider. The conversion of Air Nostrum’s turboprop fleet to a Universal Hydrogen-powered, zero-carbon configuration would be concluded after an operational evaluation of the design and performance. The aircraft are expected to have equivalent or better unit economics compared to the existing fleet.



Ravn Air


Under the terms of this LOI, Ravn is committed to purchasing five of Universal Hydrogen’s conversion kits that will integrate the company’s modular hydrogen capsule technology and hydrogen powertrain into Ravn’s growing regional turboprop fleet. In a transportation segment that is critical to the way of life in Alaska, the conversions will provide a zero-carbon solution for both passenger and cargo services.
