South Korea’s leading liquid hydrogen technology start-up Hylium Industries, Inc, will shortly be launching its liquid hydrogen Drone As A Service in the United States. The first product, Hylium Industries’ HyliumX, a liquid hydrogen energy-powered drone, will be available to customers during the first quarter of 2022.
January 21, 2022 /MarketersMedia/ —
The HyliumX is a multi-purpose drone that operates using innovative fuel cell energy that is powered by liquid hydrogen. This new generation drone boasts up to five hours of flight time, which is ten times longer than a Lithium battery-powered alternative. The HyliumX can be utilized in a diverse range of industries, including surveillance and mapping, delivery logistics, precision agriculture, inspection, maintenance, and more. Thanks to its extended flight endurance, alongside an operating distance of over 90 km, the HyliumX can be used for longer than any other drone, resulting in significantly enhanced operating efficiency.
Alongside the HyliumX, Hylium Industries also provides a Mobile Drone Control Station that serves as a communication spot between the drone and the remote pilot center. It also acts as a refueling station for the drone, meaning the duo has the potential to replace expensive helicopter services for large-scale inspection sites.
The Liquid Hydrogen Drone and Control Station As A Service will be supplied by Hylium Industries, while services will be provided by Hylium’s subsidiary HyDaaS, which will be based in New Jersey.
Hylium Industries, Inc. was established in 2014 as a Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) venture company and is the first independent manufacturer of liquid hydrogen technologies in Korea.
