Feature
Powering Africa’s first
hydrogen fuel-cell aircraft 
An award-winning aircraft – a large, fixed-wing, unmanned aerial
vehicle (UAV) – has been designed to carry out long-range surveys and
environmental research. It will be powered using miniaturised hydrogen fuel
cells that were designed, prototyped and trialled by HySA/Catalysis. It is an
excellent example of the centre’s mission to help transform South Africa’s
economy into one that manufactures from its wealth of raw materials, rather
than just supplying them for others to exploit.
