Intelligent Energy is collaborating with H2C to further Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) between Regione Veneto, ENAC – Ecole Nationale de l’Aviation Civile and SAVE S.p.A.

Italy to Receive Delivery Drones in New Collaboration

The partnership will see cargo parcel delivery drones, powered by IE-SOAR™ fuel cells, brought to the North East of Italy.

The agreement aims to project and realize all the activities and needs to create and enhance new services, technologies and solutions to carry people and freight by drone.

The partners signed a collaboration agreement as part of the Space Meetings Veneto conference in Venice. At the end of the signing ceremony, SAVE S.p.A and H2C presented a video recorded from the Space Meeting Port location. 

The video simulated the transportation of a medical package by an IE-SOAR fuel cell powered drone from Venice Passenger Terminal to Mestre Hospital. This was the first hydrogen drone powered flight in Italy authorized by the Civil Aviation Authority, ENAC.

Andy Kelly, Head of Product Line – IE-SOAR, commented; “It is fantastic to see Intelligent Energy’s strategic partners H2C and Regione Veneto taking advantage of the benefits of fuel cell technology for cargo parcel delivery within the region, allowing their drones to fly further and carry greater payloads compared to batteries.

“Intelligent Energy looks forward to supporting the growth of a fleet of IE-SOAR fuel cell powered drones serving Regione Veneto, among other regions, in the years to come.”

Guido Casellato, Group CEO of H2C, added; “H2C are very impressed with the technology and innovation from Intelligent Energy and we look forward to the growth of this successful partnership for fuel cell powered cargo parcel delivery drones when combining our technologies together.”
