Universal Hydrogen, located in the United States, has collaborated with Japanese firms to research and create a green hydrogen supply and distribution solution for Japanese airlines. This collaboration where Universal Hydrogen will offer green hydrogen solutions for Japanese Airlines is with Japan’s Sojitz, Mitsubishi HC Capital, and an unnamed third Japanese partner that aims to assist Japanese Airlines in increasing their use of hydrogen-powered flights in the near future.
Universal Hydrogen Co. announced at the California-Japan Climate Summit that it has formed a collaboration with three Japanese companies to study—and eventually develop—a green hydrogen delivery solution that will allow Japanese airlines to scale up their use of hydrogen-powered aircraft in the near future.
The most difficult obstacle to overcome as the Japanese aviation sector strives to incorporate hydrogen as a component of its decarbonization strategies is developing and assuring a long-term strategy for green hydrogen supply and logistics. Several of these airlines are already aware of the need and urgency of decarbonization; but, overcoming the obstacles of infrastructure, costs, and supply will need an all-encompassing solution.
According to Paul Eremenko, Co-founder and CEO of Universal Hydrogen Co., to accomplish aviation’s high decarbonization targets, one must work in the markets with the greatest desire for green aviation solutions, of which Japan is the biggest candidate.
The firms will discover and analyze local hydrogen sources as part of the collaboration. They will also look for partners for hydrogen manufacturing, hydrogen module filling, and module delivery activities.
The partners will be in charge of marketing tactics, leasing, and finance choices for Universal Hydrogen’s modular hydrogen capsules and powertrain conversion kits. This partnership will also include component makers and suppliers, as well as government organizations and potential clients from the nation.
This cooperation is comprised of a dynamic and inventive group of organizations, each with distinct capabilities and outputs to contribute to a common goal of advancing Japan’s sustainability efforts.
This said agreement, where Universal Hydrogen will offer green hydrogen solutions for Japanese Airlines, was revealed just weeks after Universal Hydrogen’s historic maiden hydrogen-powered flight.
