Global aerospace major Airbus will ramp up its India hiring to 2,000 from 1,500 currently.
The aircraft maker said that India is playing a crucuai part in making of the world’s first zero emsiion commercial aircraft ZEROe.
The Indian team is contributing towards making of the aircraft by supporting global tech hubs in terms of developing simulations, cooling systems and fuel cell safety analysis.
“We are preparing the future for sustainable aviation, and tech and engineering are at the heart of it,” Times of India quoted chief technical officer, Sabine Klauke, as saying.
“We are looking at three different configurations. One is a turbofan design with 200 passengers powered by hydrogen rather than jet fuel with a range of 2,000 nautical miles. The second is a turboprop design with a capacity of 100 passengers with a 1,000 nautical miles target powered by hydrogen combustion. The third is a blended-wing body that opens multiple options for hydrogen storage and distribution.”
