Airbus is leading a consortium of partners launching the GOLIAT (Ground Operations of LIquid Hydrogen AircrafT) project.

This four-year project is funded with 10.8 million EUR from the EU’s Horizon Europe Framework Programme. It aims to demonstrate small-scale liquid hydrogen (LH2) aircraft ground operations at three European airports.

The GOLIAT consortium consists of 10 partners:

  • Airbus
  • Chart Industries
  • TU Delft
  • Leibniz University Hannover
  • Royal Schiphol Group
  • Rotterdam The Hague Airport
  • VINCI Airports
  • Stuttgart Airport
  • H2FLY
  • Budapest Airport

LH2 is a clean and efficient fuel with high energy density. It could therefore offer a solution to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fossil fuel dependence in aviation. However, its widespread deployment requires an understanding of operational, regulatory, economic and safety impacts.

The GOLIAT project aims to support the aviation industry’s adoption of liquid hydrogen by developing and scaling up refuelling technologies for large commercial aircraft, demonstrating small-scale LH2 ground operations at airports, and establishing a standardisation and certification framework. Additionally, the project will evaluate the sizing and economics of hydrogen value chains for airports.
