Galp, ANA-Vinci, CaetanoBus and Mitsui assess potential of green hydrogen to reduce airport emissions

VINCI Airports, Galp, CaetanoBus and Mitsui announced Monday that they will analyze the feasibility of reducing airport CO2 emissions by replacing traditional buses and combustion engine operation vehicles with a green hydrogen fleet powered by electric fuel cells.

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

Each one will be responsible for studying and evaluating the axes of the project that best suit their business areas and decarbonization strategies, using the results to decide, by the end of the year, whether or not to move forward with the project.

“The decision by ANA – VINCI Airports, Galp, Caetano and Mitsui to jointly explore green hydrogen as a possible solution to decarbonize airport operations results from their individual commitments to develop solutions that can accelerate the transition to a sustainable energy system,” they conclude.
