Accelera to support Austrian HY2RAIL project with fuel cell technology

Accelera™ by Cummins has successfully commissioned its first hydrogen fuel cell-powered locomotive for freight rail applications as part of HY2RAIL.

m.ZERO powered the train by integrating Accelera’s fuel cell power modules into a 120kW system, before overseeing the installation of all balance-of-plant components and interfaces. The fuel cell system was then combined with a battery system to create hybrid propulsion including power electronics, onboard hydrogen storage tech and a vehicle control unit.
