H2 Clipper, an aerospace and alternative energy company, announced this Tuesday it will be part of Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE Lab accelerator program. As a result, the company will accelerate the development of hydrogen-powered airships.
Firstly, H2 Clipper is a developer of high-speed, hydrogen-powered dirigibles that use no fossil fuels. Its top-notch technology allows the transportation of pure hydrogen from where it is least costly to produce to markets with the highest demand.
Moreover, the company’s technology has a 100% carbon-free method of transporting freight and other cargo 7-10 times faster than by ship, truck, or rail; with 70% savings over traditional air transport.
Furthermore, the company’s technology heavily relies upon Dassault Systèmes’ CATIA software applications. Consequently, after joining the 3DEXPERIENCE Lab accelerator program, the company will dramatically expand its use of software applications from Dassault Systèmes.

H2 Clipper to have a full-sized hydrogen-powered airship in 2027
As a result, H2 Clipper anticipates completing a detailed design and construction of a prototype to fly in 2024; and its first full-sized airship in 2027. In addition, H2 Clipper’s senior leadership team, project managers; designers, and engineers will have full access to its cloud-based virtual environment on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
This will deliver integrated design, engineering, simulation, and data intelligence applications to H2 Clipper’s capabilities. Therefore, it will continue to digitally develop its transformative airship; benefit from high-level access to Dassault Systèmes’ worldwide network of customers, partners, and technology collaborators.
On the other hand, according to Frédéric Vacher; Head of Innovation at Dassault Systèmes H2 Clipper got into the accelerator program after demonstrating significant technological breakthroughs; and the greatest potential to impact and transform society positively. He said about the matter. “The aerospace and aviation revolution is being driven by breakthroughs in the use of renewable fuels such as hydrogen, as well as advanced material science and engineering.”
Finally, H2 Clipper founder and CEO Rinaldo Brutoco said. “We are honored to be selected to join the 3DEXPERIENCE Lab accelerator program. The opportunities this will open for us will greatly help our work of providing a rapidly scalable hydrogen infrastructure solution that is critical to realizing the disruptive potential of hydrogen.”
