Adopting hydrogen as universal fuel
Universal Hydrogen, founded last year in Los Angeles, has executed a letter of intent (LoI) with ASL Aviation Holdings, a global aviation services group based in Dublin, Ireland.
ASL will be a global launch customer for the turboprop cargo market and plans to purchase up to ten of Universal Hydrogen’s ATR 72 conversion kits for installation into its existing or future turboprop aircraft fleet.
Dave Andrew, CEO of ASL Aviation Holdings: "Air cargo has a unique opportunity to lead the aviation industry as it moves to meet ambitious carbon emissions targets. In ASL we are committed to being a first-mover in the introduction of new emissions reduction technology in our current fleet and hydrogen has a significant role to play with aircraft such as the ATR 72."
