Baker Hughes and airport management company Avports agreed to a memorandum of understanding this month to develop and operate onsite hydrogen-fueled microgrids at U.S. airports.

The collaboration agreement aims to address emissions reduction at airport buildings, horizontal airport infrastructure, vehicles and aircraft systems.

Baker Hughes’ portfolio includes both hydrogen-ready turbines and heat recovery solutions for microgrid applications.

Avports currently manages 11 airports in seven different U.S. states. The company has operated more than 30 airports, aviation facilities and passenger terminals in the U.S., including for more than 50 years in New York State.
