As detailed on the Hybrid and Electric page, the engine testing was carried out in facilities owned by the Ministry of Defense of the United Kingdom.
How was it achieved? Modern technology was incorporated into a Rolls-Royce AE 2100-A regional aircraft engine. But what they have highlighted is that the hydrogen used is of ecological origin, which further opens the possibility of having planes that do not pollute and emit CO2.
This hydrogen was obtained from wind and tidal energy from the Orkney Islands, in the north of Scotland. Now, the next test will be carried out on a Rolls-Royce Pearl 15 jet engine, a block much larger than the current one.
