Biggest Mobile Hydrogen Fuel Cell In The World To Power Sergey Brin’s Mysterious Airship

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Hydrogen Fuel News.

This is the introductory paragraph.

LTA Research and Exploration, the secretive and mysterious airship company owned by Google co-founder and former Alphabet President Sergey Brin, will use the biggest mobile hydrogen fuel cell in the world to power its disaster relief airship.

The size of the fuel cell appears to be 1.5 MW according to the Hydrogen Fuel News article.

The company has a web site with a title of The Future Off 21st Century Airships.

The web site talks about vision, focus and their response to Covid-19, so it is certainly not vapourware, although it seems to be more about building the team.

Conclusion

Sergey Brin has his heart in the right place

But he is ploughing a furrow, that has been attempted many times and sadly most attempts have ended in failure.

  1. For freight an airship could have an inner hydrogen envelope with Helium outer envelope and burn the hydrogen and some other fuel as it went along diminishing the need to drop ballast to maintain neutral bouyancy.
