With sustainability as the cornerstone of future air mobility, ITP Aero continues to strengthen its growth strategy through various projects that aim to expand its production capacity, its global industrial footprint and its own technology development to lead the transition to a sustainable aviation sector.
This decarbonisation task will be transferred to the new R&D center, which will start operating next year in Zamudio (Bizkaia Bizkaia). Designed according to the highest standards of sustainability, its activity revolves around the research of new digital technologies and manufacturing to develop the most efficient devices demanded by the market.
His work will revolve around research into new digital technologies and advanced manufacturing to develop the most efficient motors demanded by the market.
In the context of the gradual recovery that the sector is experiencing today, the opening of air transport and the restoration of passenger traffic, ITP Aero is growing in all its centers – where it already has more than 4,700 employees – as forecasts for future growth demand. and so it increases in the market. And it does so through significant investments in threshold machines and maintenance activities, in addition to a recent commitment to the production of parts for new machine structures.
These sustainable architectures from hybrid-electric propulsion and hydrogen ITP Aero confirm the conviction that the future of aviation involves research excellence in manufacturing technology and digitalization to reduce environmental impact. All this within the framework of a strategic vision to promote global energy decarbonisation through projects such as the UN Race to Zero program or the European Global Aviation Partnership.
Faced with these global challenges that the new paradigm of sustainable aviation, ITP Acro works to be an active part of the solution, becoming the first Spanish aeronautical company with net zero carbon emissions by 2050. The first step to this end will come in 2030. since it will achieve carbon neutrality in its operations. In order to successfully achieve these tasks, the company will focus its activity on projects aimed at environmental improvement, be it efficiency and CO2 emissions, noise reduction or the sustainability of the production process.
The first step towards this goal will come in 2030, when it will achieve carbon neutrality in its operations.
In short, in order to deal with the development of disruptive technologies, it will be necessary to lay the foundations for the projection of these new systems. This global challenge requires a joint effort and a solid network of public-private partnerships such as the one recently developed by ITP Aero for the first hydrogen engine for aviation, a pioneering project that involves companies, technology centers and leading public universities and will invest them. at the forefront of European innovation in this area.
This heterogeneous ecosystem needs the airline also the backbone of the initiatives led by ITP Aero in Hazitek, which has the support of the Dutch government, to promote the competitiveness of the Dutch aeronautical sector and make it a strategic agent in areas such as electric propulsion; digital technology, artificial intelligence or manufacturing with zero defects.
