H2 Clipper, Inc. has signed a collaboration agreement with the Foundation for the Development of New Hydrogen Technologies located in Aragon, Spain.
The agreement aims to establish a framework for the feasibility testing of H2 Clipper’s technologies for transporting and distributing hydrogen worldwide, including the patented Pipeline-In-The-Sky™ and Pipe-Within-A-Pipe™.
With the joint goal of advancing solutions to decarbonize the EU’s extensive natural gas grid, H2 Clipper and the Foundation will work together to:
- Conduct an independent assessment of the economic viability of H2 Clipper’s proprietary advanced airship, the Pipeline-In-The-Sky™, for moving massive amounts of liquid hydrogen between locations where it is least expensive to generate from renewable resources to locations where consumer demand is the greatest without relying on trucks, rail, ship or conventional air transport.
- Evaluate and test H2 Clipper’s proprietary Pipe-Within-A-Pipe™ technology for moving significant quantities of pressurized gaseous hydrogen from centralized cryogenic depots near urban, suburban or metropolitan areas to commercial and residential consumers.
Rinaldo Brutoco, CEO of H2 Clipper, said, “We are honored and excited to partner with the Foundation in a mutually beneficial effort to plan, design, construct and validate feasibility of H2 Clipper’s technologies for hydrogen transport and distribution throughout Europe, including through the region’s existing natural gas pipeline network.”
Arturo Aliaga Lopez, President of the Foundation, said, “The EU has set a binding target to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 45% below 1990 levels by 2030. Green hydrogen produced through renewable-powered electrolysis will be critical for decarbonizing electricity and gas markets. This may be realized by delivering hydrogen through current natural gas pipeline networks utilizing H2 Clipper’s novel Pipe-Within-A-Pipe technology.”
H2 Clipper is an aerospace and alternative energy company developing hydrogen-powered airships and end-to-end hydrogen infrastructure solutions.
