LEICESTER, England, Nov. 10, 2023 /CSRwire/ – Baker Hughes, an energy technology company, announced its participation in a pioneering hydrogen project, Future Engine Technology for the Control of Hydrogen (FETCH). Baker Hughes collaborates with Moog Inc. and others to develop key technology for future aircraft hydrogen fuel control systems.
Leveraging its expanded portfolio of Druck pressure measurement technology and instrumentation, Baker Hughes will develop a custom dual pressure and temperature sensor specifically designed to withstand the extreme range of operating temperatures to measure certain parameters of hydrogen, a critical process in the overall FETCH -project. Baker Hughes will design, develop and manufacture its dual pressure and temperature sensors at the Druck facility in Groby, Leicestershire, UK
The FETCH project, led by Moog Inc., also includes the University of Bath/IAAPS, Cranfield University, Curtiss-Wright Corporation’s Sensors Division and Carter Manufacturing. The project has secured match funding from the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) Programme, a joint government and industry investment to maintain and develop the UK’s competitive position in civil aerospace design and manufacturing.
“We are pleased to build on our long legacy of developing cutting-edge pressure measurement technology that is key to the energy transition,” said Gordon Docherty, general manager of Baker Hughes’ Druck product line. “The FETCH collaboration reflects our commitment to driving the development of hydrogen-powered aircraft and further expands Baker Hughes’ broad experience in handling challenging, complex hydrogen applications.”
Baker Hughes’ advanced technologies and solutions serve the entire hydrogen value chain, from production to transport and utilization. The company’s portfolio includes advanced compressors, gas turbines, valves, centrifugal pumps, non-metallic pipes, hydrogen sensors, monitoring and diagnostics, including inspection solutions for hydrogen embrittlement in production and storage, as well as clean flow solutions for producing power with hydrogen and hydrogen mixtures.
The Baker Hughes Druck product line is a global leader in pressure measurement and instrumentation technology across a wide range of industries. With over 500,000 sensors already in operation to help control aircraft flight direction, fuel systems, hydraulics, cabin air pressure, engine oil system and many other applications, Druck sensors are widely used in the aerospace sector.
