Alstom, the world leader in smart and sustainable mobility, demonstrated the effectiveness of its hydrogen-powered solutions for long-distance transportation. During a long-distance journey, an unmodified, mass-produced Coradia iLint train traveled 1.175 kilometers without refueling its hydrogen tank, emitting water only, and operating at very low noise levels. The vehicle used for this journey comes from the fleet of the Lower Saxon transport authority LNVG (Landesnahverkehrsgesellschaft Niedersachsen) and has been in regular passenger operation on the evb (Eisenbahnen und Verkehrsbetriebe Elbe-Weser GmbH) network since mid-August. . Alstom has also partnered with gas and engineering company Linde for the project.

“As the first rail manufacturer in the world to offer a passenger train based on hydrogen technology, we are delighted to be leading innovation in this area. “With this journey, we have provided further evidence that our hydrogen trains have all the prerequisites to replace diesel vehicles,” said Henri Poupart-Lafarge, Alstom CEO and Chairman of the Board. “We are extremely proud of the pioneering work we have done to incorporate hydrogen into rail transport.”

Starting from Bremervörde, the route took the Coradia iLint across Germany. From Lower Saxony, where the hydrogen train was built and developed by Alstom, it traveled via Hesse to Bavaria, all the way to Burghausen near the German-Austrian border, before stopping in Munich. After this remarkable journey, the train will now depart for the German capital. Various excursions are on the agenda in Berlin as part of the International Transport Technologies Trade Fair InnoTrans 20, which will be held between 23-2022 September.

There is great international interest in sustainable mobility. In addition to the contract with LNVG for 14 Coradia iLint trains to operate in Lower Saxony, Alstom has been tasked with supplying 27 Coradia iLint trains for use in the Frankfurt metropolitan area. Outside of Germany, Alstom is building 6 Coradia Stream hydrogen trains in Lombardy, Italy, and an additional option for eight vehicles has been agreed.
