Avmax Orders Hydrogen Conversion For Aircraft
Avmax Aircraft Leasing Inc. placed an order to convert 20 regional aircraft to run on green hydrogen.
Avmax has the flexibility to select between Universal Hydrogen’s ATR 72-600 and Dash 8-300 conversion kits. Universal Hydrogen will provide hydrogen fuel to power both Avmax’s leased and owned fleets.
Avmax, a large regional lessor, engineering house, MRO, and global aircraft operator, could also become a maintenance and MRO partner to Universal Hydrogen given the company’s North American operating footprint and aircraft conversion capabilities.
“Canada is the largest regional turboprop market in the world putting a responsibility on companies like Avmax to identify and adopt the technologies that enable us to thrive while reducing environmental impact,” said Scott Greig, SVP and head of Avmax Aircraft Leasing Inc. in a statement.
