Trains Powered By Hydrogen Will Run In Germany From 2021

Lower Saxony, Germany: French company Alstom announced recently that it has signed an agreement to deliver 14 trains powered by hydrogen to Local Transport Authority of Lower Saxony, a rail company in Germany.

The trains will operate from December 2021 on routes between Cuxhaven, Bremerhaven, Bremervoerde and Buxtehude. Called the Coradia iLint, the world’s first first hydrogen-powered passenger train emits no carbon and is capable of operating in near-silence.

Wolfram Schwab, regional vice-president of products and innovation, Alstom, said, “Fuel cells have been developed for other applications, but now is the time to get this done in the railway sector. Now we are just at the starting point of the migration phase to zero-emission trains.”

The company also says the train will be able to travel up to 800 km on a single tank of hydrogen and be capable of holding up to 300 passengers. As part of the deal, the company will provide maintenance for the trains over a 30 year period. Meanwhile, gas company Linde will supply hydrogen for the new trains.
