World’s first test of hydrogen jet engine successful

Rolls-Royce and EasyJet Airline Successfully Test World’s First Hydrogen Jet Engine eliminating greenhouse gases from aviation,

“The ground test was conducted on one of the first prototypes using green hydrogen created by wind and tidal energy. This is an important step in demonstrating Hydrogen could be an aviation fuel of the future,” Rolls-Royce said in a statement.

Rolls-Royce and EasyJet show hydrogen can Supply energy safely and efficiently In addition to civil aviation engines, they plan to conduct more tests in the long term.



The test was carried out at an outdoor test facility at MoD Boscombe Down (UK) and using a converted Rolls-Royce AE 2100-A regional aircraft engine. Green hydrogen, on the other hand, was supplied by EMEC (European Marine Energy Centre) and renewable energy was generated at its hydrogen production plant in the Orkney Islands (United Kingdom).

Grazia Vittadini (Rolls-Royce CTO) said in the statement, “The success of this hydrogen test is an exciting milestone. We only announced our partnership with EasyJet in July and we are already a ready to make an incredible start. We’re pushing the limits to discover the carbon-zero possibilities of hydrogen, which can help Reshape the future of flight.


Hermes is responsible for making this engine.

Meanwhile, Johan Lundgren (CEO, EasyJet) says: “This is a real breakthrough for our team of partners. We are committed to continuing to support this pioneering research as hydrogen offers huge potential for a wide variety of aircraft.” including aircraft. This will be a major step towards tackling net zero emissions challenge by 2050,

the alliance is Inspired by the United Nations’ ‘Race to Zero’ campaign Achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
