The four companies will assess the feasibility of reducing airport CO2 emissions by replacing traditional buses and vehicles operating with combustion engines with a fleet of green hydrogen, powered by electric fuel cells. They will make a decision before the end of the year on whether or not to proceed with the project.

The initial study will calculate the most appropriate location and various aspects of the airport operation, including the type and number of vehicles to be considered, hydrogen production and distribution strategy, equipment suppliers, fleet replacement speed, and requirements in terms of regulatory framework, as well as the most viable business model.

Each of the partners will be complementary responsible for the study and evaluation of the project axes that best suit their business areas and decarbonization strategies.

The decision by ANA – Vinci Airports, Galp, Caetano and Mitsui to jointly explore green hydrogen results from their individual commitments to develop solutions that can accelerate the transition to a sustainable energy system.
