Thursday, 19 October 2023

Graham Corporation (“GHM” or the “Company”), a global leader in the design and manufacture of mission critical fluid, power, heat transfer, and vacuum technologies for the defense, space, energy, and process industries, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Barber-Nichols, supplied ethylene glycol water pumps to Universal Hydrogen for its Dash 8 turboprop, deemed to be the world's largest hydrogen fuel cell powered aircraft.

Matt Malone, VP and General Manager – Barber-Nichols, commented, “We are proud to have been instrumental in the success of Universal Hydrogen's accomplishments in clean air travel. This project demonstrates Barber-Nichol's ability to collaborate with our customers to meet their complex technical needs, utilizing our engineering and manufacturing expertise. Barber-Nichols wants to congratulate the Universal Hydrogen team on their successful flights and recent milestones.”

Universal Hydrogen has now achieved ten test flights as the company drives toward its goal of commercial entry into service in 2026. Universal Hydrogen also received its G-1 Issue Paper from Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), a milestone which is required to certify the airworthiness and environmental standards of hydrogen-powered aircraft.

Mr. Malone added, “Hydrogen as a clean, alternative fuel is gaining traction in aerospace and transportation, or the mobility market in general. We believe the engineering expertise we have demonstrated translates to many adjacent applications. We plan to leverage our expertise in high power, critical turbomachinery equipment that can operate in challenging environments to capture more opportunities in this growing market segment.”
