Electric Heart transplants to Säve airport
Sweden's only electric aircraft manufacturer is moving to Säve airport. The switch will allow Heart Aerospace to continue development of its ES-19, a 19 passenger aircraft with a range of 250 miles on batteries.
Sweden's only electric-powered aircraft manufacturer moving to Säve Airport.

Electric aircraft manufacturer Heart Aerospace has signed a leasing agreement with Swedish commercial real estate company Castellum for premises comprising approximately 1,800 sqm at Save airport. The workspace will be used to design and assemble the prototype for an e-plane, currently under development at the company. Heart Aerospace's objective is to develop a 19 seat electric aircraft with a range of 400 km, to be certified airworthy by 2025.

Castellum acquired Save Airport in December, 2018 and pledge to create an innovation and development cluster for sustainable transport and mobility. The development property covers an area of nearly three million sqm and is strategically located close to Gothenburg Harbour and city centre, as well as to national transport routes. Heart Aerospace is one of the first tenants to move into the area.

“It feels like these premises are tailor-made for us,” says Heart founder and CEO Anders Forslund. “We have all we need here to continue development of our first electrically powered airplane. In addition, we're acquiring access to an established runway for testing. I grew up in the area myself, with aviation as a neighbour; I have strong childhood memories of Viggen fighter-planes flying over soccer fields in the area. That's when my interest in airplanes and aviation began. Moving in with Heart Aerospace, and to be alongside writing the next chapter for Save airport, feels gigantic for me personally.”
