Hydrogen-Powered 3D-Printed Drone Takes Flight

Test Conducted In Boston In Late August

Clean tech company H2GO Power has completed what it claims as the world’s first successful test flight of a 3D-printed hydrogen-powered UAV. The flight took place in Boston in late August as part of a partnership with Ballard Unmanned Systems Inc – the UAV arm of Ballard Power Systems.

Headquartered in the U.K., H2GO Power is developing and delivering solid-state hydrogen energy storage for zero-emission, reliable and safe power supply.

"The company’s drone application solution can increase the flight time of a drone’s battery by up to 90 minutes, compared with less than 25 minutes for typical Lithium-ion battery systems," the company said in a statement .

“The cutting-edge design allows for up to 15% of total drone weight reduction and volume control – achieved by the 3D printed lightweight metal – as well as creating internal structures that optimise heat management into and out of the power system. This enables UAVs to travel three to five times further and carry heavier payloads.”

"This is a hugely exciting development for our unique technology and brings us a step closer to delivering clean and sustainable energy delivery," said Dr Enass Abo-Hamed, founder and CEO of H2GO Power. “The successful flight demonstrates an innovative solution for the future of drones and its multiple commercial applications.

“With safety at the forefront of our decision-making process, our power system enables lightweight, scalable, clean energy storage that creates significant cost savings and is up to five times more efficient than existing alternatives.”
