Project to demonstrate impact of liquid hydrogen fuelling of retired Airbus 320 at Hamburg airport

Germany’s aviation industry has launched a project at Hamburg Airport to test the impact on maintenance and other ground processes of fuelling aircraft with liquid hydrogen. Testing of hydrogen technology on a decommissioned  Airbus 320 aircraft is expected to start in 2022. The project will also include digital mapping via a virtual platform being developed in parallel with the physical demonstration. The project is funded by the Hanseatic City of Hamburg, with the research conducted by aviation maintenance firm Lufthansa Technik, government agency the German Aerospace Centre (DLR), civil aviation research agency the Centre for Applied Aeronautical Research  and Hamburg Airport.
