ITM to provide Boeing withPEM electrolyzer for trials for unmanned aircraft

ITM Power has signed an Equipment Development and Lease Agreement with Boeing Research & Technology Europe S.L.U. for the development, assembly and field trials of a 1 Nm3/hour (2.1 kg/day) PEM electrolyzer. The containerized electrolysis equipment will form part of Boeing’s current off-grid refueling station for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS).

During the last few years the Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) industry/sector has seen sustained growth, mainly through the development and maturing of military applications and followed by wide recognition of their possibilities in civilian applications which include: border control; coastguard; law enforcement; pipeline and powerline monitoring; earth and environmental observations; communications; and many more.

These systems can potentially offer lower cost and investment risk as well as low infrastructure requirements for tactical intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISAR).
