Helium One to explore deposit sites with airships
Hybrid Enterprises has announced a strategic partnership with Helium One, an explorer, developer and producer of high-value bulk liquid helium for the international market. Helium One will use the LMH-1 Hybrid Airship to safely transport helium out of Helium One’s deposit sites in Tanzania.
Developed and built by Lockheed Martin, the LMH-1 can land on virtually any surface including gravel, snow, ice and even water. The helium-filled, heavier-than-air airships can carry 21 metric t of cargo and up to 19 passengers. The LMH-1 will provide a low cost and sustainable solution to moving cargo and personnel to the most isolated regions of the world.
