Our Bureau - : Jul 20, 2022 - : 7:18 am

Rolls-Royce and Hyundai Motor Group announced their plans at the Farnborough International Airshow to collaborate on bringing all-electric propulsion and hydrogen fuel cell technology to the Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) market.
While Rolls-Royce’s will leverage its aviation and certification capabilities, Hyundai Motor Group will provide access to its hydrogen fuel cell technologies and industrialisation capability.

Jaiwon Shin, President of Hyundai Motor Group, said: “We are pleased to partner with Rolls-Royce to draw upon their aviation and certification expertise to accelerate the development of hydrogen fuel-cell propulsion systems. Hyundai has successfully delivered hydrogen fuel cell systems to the global automotive market and is now exploring the feasibility of electric and hydrogen propulsion technologies for aerospace integration. We believe this to be the key technology to support the global aviation industry’s goal to fly net zero carbon by 2050.”

The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Rolls-Royce and Hyundai Motor Group includes five strategic aims:

• Collaborating on the technology development and requirements of power and propulsion systems for Hyundai’s Advanced Air Mobility Division.
• Collaborating on the industrialisation of Rolls-Royce power and propulsion systems for the Advanced Air Mobility market.
• Development of electric propulsion systems based upon hydrogen fuel cells as an energy source for Hyundai’s RAM platforms.
• Collaborating to bring to market a joint fuel-cell electric propulsion system to the wider AAM market.
• Delivering a joint fuel-cell electric aircraft demonstration by 2025.

Rob Watson, President, Rolls-Royce Electrical, said, ‘The Advanced Air Mobility Market offers great commercial potential, and this collaboration supports our joint ambitions to lead the way in the Advanced Air Mobility Market.
