Changi Airport Group (CAG) has signed a collaboration agreement with Airbus, the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and Linde to jointly develop a feasibility study for an airport hydrogen hub in Singapore Changi Airport.
The two-year study will examine the infrastructure requirements and supply solutions to support hydrogen-powered aircraft and airport operations at Changi Airport.
These requirements include the production, storage and distribution of hydrogen in aircraft ground services, operational equipment and refuelling systems. CAG will be involved in assessing the feasibility of hydrogen fuel cells in supporting airport operations, as well as establishing regulations and standards for the safe adoption of hydrogen technologies.
“Sustainability is a key focus area for CAG as we strive towards making Changi Airport a sustainable air hub, with the longer-term aspiration towards net zero carbon by 2050,” said Yam Kum Weng, Executive Vice President for Airport Development, CAG. “We look forward to this collaboration to explore innovations that enable hydrogen-powered aircraft and ground operations at Changi Airport in the future.”
The agreement was signed by CAG’s Yam Kum Weng; Dr Sabine Klauke, Chief Technical Officer, Airbus; Han Kok Juan, Director-General, CAAS; and John Panikar, Executive Vice President APAC, Linde, at the Singapore Airshow 2022.
