Dion Hordijk will give a presentation on his master thesis, entitled:

Hydrogen-powered Ultra-Large Cargo Aeroplane: A Study into the Economic & Operational Feasibility


A study into the operational and economic feasibility of a hydrogen-powered ultra-large cargo aeroplane. This innovative concept aims to revolutionise long-distance freight transportation by offering low air freight rates through economies of scale and unpressurised transport. The aeroplane will have a payload capacity of 1200 tonnes and will require dedicated airport infrastructure. For an integral feasibility assessment, studies were done to determine: potential future demand, airport locations, airport operations & finance, aeroplane production costs, hydrogen production costs and lightweight container supply chain options. Combined these elements were used in a network cost assessment and environmental impact assessment.


It is with great pleasure that I invite you all to attend this presentation. The Colloquium will be held as follows:
