Germany brings world’s first Hydrogen-Powered Trains in 2021

Published on : Friday, November 10, 2017

gerGermany will introduce the world’s first trains powered by hydrogen fuel cells with 14 emission-free trains due to transport passengers in Lower Saxony from 2021.
France’s Alstom will build the train at its site in Salzgitter and replace diesel trains plying between Cuxhaven, Bremerhaven, Bremervoerde and Buxtehude.
The train will be named Coradia iLint that will commute a distance of 1,000 kilometres (621 miles) with one tank of hydrogen with a speed of 140 kilometres per hour.
Gian Luca Erbacci, Alstom’s senior vice president for Europe said that this move will be a real breakthrough in rail transportation , it will be the first time that a worldwide, a hydrogen-fuelled passenger regional train will substitute the diesel trains.
Lower Saxony’s local transport authority Alstom and Linde signed the agreement on Thursday which will be providing the hydrogen filling station. It coincided with climate talks in Bonn which saw the participation of 200 counties trying to support a global climate accord.
Early this year it was decided by the heads of some of the world’s biggest oil firms and automakers to push for broader global use and bigger investments in using hydrogen to reduce emissions and arrest global warning.
