PowerCell Sweden AB has secured an order valued at a total of MSEK 10.9 million (US$1.3 million) from UK company ZeroAvia. The order comprises fuel cell stacks, fuel cell systems and engineering services, and is scheduled for continuous delivery over one year.
The order is part of a cooperation agreement that both companies have now signed and which, within the framework of the UK HighFlyer 2 project, aims to develop a certifiable fuel cell system for commercial use in aviation.
The goal of HighFlyer 2 is to develop an emissions-free 19-seat hydrogen-electric commercial aircraft.
ZeroAvia conducted the first hydrogen-electric flight of a commercial airplane in September last year. An MS-100 fuel cell system from PowerCell was on board the plane. Earlier this year, PowerCell Sweden received two orders for fuel cell systems from ZeroAvia, which the company also announced.
