Blackfish have developed a test rig to allow our client to test hydrogen fuel cells suitability for the aerospace industry. The electrification of aeroplanes is a key target to reduce emissions, particularly damaging at altitude. The test table is able to pitch and roll a 500kg fuel cell to angles up to 50 degrees.
Blackfish were responsible for delivering the entire turnkey project to the client:
· Concept design, detailed design, hand calculations, FEA
· All manufacturing drawings, procurement and supervised manufacture.
· Completed the assembly and testing ourselves and successfully demonstrated to the client, including overload test at all angles.
