HevenDrones unveils new long-endurance, versatile hydrogen drones

HevenDrones, an Israeli drone technology provider, introduced its latest innovation, the H2D200 Series, during the company’s appearance at the Monaco Hydrogen Forum.

The release of this new hydrogen-powered drone series marks a significant milestone in the company’s journey to revolutionize the drone industry and redefine the possibilities of hydrogen-powered flight.

Building on the success of the foundational H100 drone, the company presented two groundbreaking models – H2D200 and H2D250 models. These drones leverage the unique flight profile of hydrogen to enhance their performance and capabilities. This is a significant advancement in the company’s ongoing efforts to develop a complete lineup of cleaner, longer-range hydrogen-based alternatives to UAVs powered by lithium batteries for a wide range of applications, including commercial, industrial, emergency response, and defense purposes.

The two new arrivals to the HevenDrones lineup utilize the strengths of hydrogen power, with its unmatched energy density and environmental benefits, to expand the capabilities and range of its UAV fleet.

The H2D200 can carry payloads up to 4.5kg (10lbs) and has an endurance of up to 4 hours, with a range of up to 510 km (317 miles). It offers unparalleled precision hovering, making it ideal for various applications.

On the other hand, the H2D250 is capable of carrying payloads up to 10kg (22 lbs) and has a range of up to 750 km (466 miles). With a flight time of up to 8 hours, it is perfect for logistics missions that require multiple deliveries.

HevenDrones notes that the hydrogen technology used in its UAVs not only enhances their brawn and endurance but can also be utilized in a multifaceted manner by increasing the number of deliveries a drone can handle in one go before fuel cells need to be replaced. This aligns with the overall objective of HevenDrones to provide longer operation, improved performance, and cleaner hydrogen power in its UAVs.

The extended lifespan of hydrogen cells also reduces replacement costs as compared to conventional power sources. Additionally, using hydrogen cells eliminates the environmental damage caused by mining materials used in lithium batteries, thereby benefiting the planet.

“We are at a pivotal moment in the drone industry. The H2D200 Series represents not only a leap forward in drone technology but also a testament to our commitment to building a smarter ecosystem in the skies using the full power and potential of AI,” Bentzion Levinson, CEO of HevenDrones, shared his vision during the presentation. “With these hydrogen-powered drones, we are redefining the possibilities of what drones can achieve while leveraging a clean and readily available fuel source. We are excited to bring these innovations to the world and to partner with forward-thinking organizations who share our vision.”
