NASA Awards Contract for Liquid Hydrogen

NASA has awarded a contract to Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. of Allentown, Pennsylvania, to supply up to 7.5 million pounds of liquid hydrogen to support operations at the agency’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida and the nearby Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.

The indefinite delivery requirements contract includes firm-fixed price delivery orders with a maximum value of approximately $75 million. The contract begins Dec. 9 and consists of a base period and one option period that, if exercised, would extend the contract to Nov. 30, 2025.

NASA’s Kennedy Space Center is the nation’s premier multi-user spaceport and the agency’s main launch site. The center also is home to facilities that research and develop innovative solutions that government and commercial space ventures need for working and living on the surfaces of the Moon and other bodies in our solar system. NASA uses liquid hydrogen, combined with liquid oxygen, as fuel in cryogenic rocket engines, and the commodity’s unique properties support the development of aeronautics.
