HyPerComp partners with Ballard Unmanned Systems

30th April 2019 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


HyPerComp Engineering has partnered with Ballard Unmanned Systems to provide FCair compressed hydrogen fuel tanks for commercial UAS platforms.

The initial FCair composite overwrap pressure vessel line includes 3.5 litre, 4.7 litre, and 7.0 litre models, which enable flight times of one to six hours for various fixed wing and multi-rotor unmanned aircraft.

A complete FCair solution includes the fuel cell, fuel tanks, pressure regulators and cooling systems, as well as ground support, and refuelling equipment and services.

Daryl Thompson, CEO, HyPerComp said: ‘We are excited to partner with Ballard to transition composite hydrogen storage vessels from niche defence to broader commercial markets. Our initial efforts together have resulted in standardisation of three vessel sizes to accommodate differing aircraft and mission types, and we look forward to the coming months and years as we broaden the FCair product line, and ramp from field trial to deployment volumes.’
