  • Maeve Aerospace has partnered with Siemens Xcelerator to develop the revolutionary Maeve 01, a zero-emissions, all-electric passenger aircraft.
  • The Maeve 01 can carry 44 or more passengers over 250 nautical miles with zero tailpipe emissions.
  • The collaboration will allow Maeve Aerospace’s team to optimize aircraft design to create lighter craft that will cost less to operate.

Earlier this summer, Maeve Aerospace B.V. adopted the Siemens Xcelerator industry software to pave the way for their ambitious project: the Maeve 01. This next-generation, zero-emissions, all-electric passenger aircraft is set to revolutionize regional air mobility and make a substantial dent in the aviation industry’s carbon footprint. Unveiled at the Paris Air Show, the Maeve 01 boasts an impressive capacity, ferrying over 44 passengers across 250 nautical miles emission-free.


Siemens Xcelerator: A Game-Changing Toolbox

Under the guidance of their new Chief Technology Officer, Martin Nuesseler, Maeve Aerospace has meticulously utilized the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio to overhaul and optimize their initial aircraft design. Through digital twinning and sophisticated simulations of their all-electric powertrain and bespoke battery system, Maeve Aerospace succeeded in significantly reducing the aircraft’s weight. 

This weight reduction helped improve propulsion and battery capacity, culminating in a 30% decrease in operating costs compared to conventional turboprop aircraft.

Joost Dieben, Co-Founder and Chief Commercial Officer of Maeve Aerospace, was enthusiastic about their collaboration with Siemens. “Having the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio of design and simulation tools in their toolbox has given us the perfect opportunity to take our electric aircraft design to the next level,” Dieben says. 

This partnership has enabled Maeve to accelerate their developmental process, propelling them closer to their goal of achieving zero-emission aviation before 2030.


Investing in the Potential Future of Aviation

Recently, the company garnered substantial investor interest, including a €17.5 million ($19.2 million) conditional investment from the European Innovation Council, coupled with Dutch grants exceeding €2.5 million ($2.74 million). 

Todd Tuthill, Vice President of Aerospace and Defense at Siemens Digital Industries Software, underscores the prevailing trend of pioneering aerospace firms like Maeve Aerospace embracing Siemens Xcelerator as their platform of choice. Tuthill emphasizes that, “To meet market demands, sustainability requirements and remain competitive, aerospace companies need new ways to deliver products faster and Siemens’ goal is to help our customers push the boundaries of innovation while making digital transformation easy, fast, and at scale.”
