Germany inaugurates world’s first hydrogen-powered train

According to details, Germany has introduced the world’s first hydrogen-powered train service with the aim of promoting the environment-friendly fuel.

To start this service, the French company Alstom has manufactured and delivered 14 trains to the German state of Lower Saxony, which will replace the diesel-powered trains.

According to media reports, these new trains will be run on a 60-mile track.

According to Alstom project manager Stefan Schrank, this is the first train service in the world to run on hydrogen fuel. This train is named Coradia iLint.

20% of trains in Germany are currently running on diesel and the new technology will be used as an alternative.

2 hydrogen trains have been in operation since 2018 but this is the first time this revolutionary technology has been used for a full service.

The company is developing these trains for France, Germany and Italy and according to an estimate, hydrogen models will replace 2,500 to 3,000 diesel trains in Germany.

Currently, one out of every two trains in Europe is powered by diesel, but hydrogen-powered models are rapidly being developed.

A prototype hydrogen was introduced in May by the French company as well as the German company Siemens, which is expected to be officially introduced to the market in 2024.

The Oxygen combines with hydrogen to produce electricity that powers the train.
