Train Powered by Hydrogen

Train Powered by Hydrogen

The Coradia iLint is the first passenger train powered by a hydrogen fuel cell.  The train was by designed by Alstom teams in Salzgitter, Germany and in Tarbes, France.

Electricity is generated by hydrogen fuel cells when hydrogen and oxygen combine to produce water.  This makes the cells a promising zero emissions, energy source that produces very little noise.

The iLint train is made possible due to recent development of lighter and more efficient  fuel cells.  Therefore increasing the viability of hydrogen-powered vehicles. These trains are designed for operation on non-electrified lines.  This enables clean, sustainable train operation while ensuring high levels of performance.
