Crane and Heart Aerospace to collaborate on Electrical Power Distribution System for ES-30

Crane Aerospace & Electronics, an aerospace and defence supplier of highly engineered components and systems, and Heart Aerospace, a Swedish electric airplane maker, today announced a collaboration to define the Electrical Power Distribution System on Heart’s ES-30 regional electric airplane.

According to the press release “An Electrical Power Distribution System is what transports the energy stored in the batteries to the airplane’s energy consuming systems, such as Flight Controls and Avionics.

“Crane A&E has been selected by Heart Aerospace for the Joint Definition Phase of Heart’s ES-30, where the companies will collaborate to define the requirements necessary to integrate Crane A&E’s high-voltage power conversion system as well as its low-voltage control and distribution into the ES-30.

“The ES-30 is a regional electric airplane with a standard seating capacity of 30 passengers driven by electric motors with battery derived energy. It will have a fully electric zero emissions range of 200 kilometres, an extended hybrid range of 400 kilometres with 30 passengers and flexibility to fly up to 800 kilometres with 25 passengers, all including typical airline reserves.

“Heart Aerospace has a total of 250 firm orders for the ES-30, with options and purchase rights for an additional 120 planes. The company also has letters of intent for a further 91 airplanes. The plan is for the ES-30 to enter into service in 2028.”
