Alstom, Hynamics sign new partnership agreement to accelerate hydrogen train adoption

Alstom and Hynamics (EDF) have signed a new partnership agreement that will look to optimise the fuelling of hydrogen passenger trains to ensure quicker refuelling times.

As part of the new agreement revealed on Thursday (Nov 18), it is hoped that the roll out of hydrogen-powered train could be accelerated across the globe.

The new agreement builds on previous partnerships with the Alstom and Hynamics teams already carrying out joint modelling, calculation, and simulation work.

This work, which notably mobilises the skills and resources of “EDF Lab”, will then be tested from 2022 on the electrolyser test platform at the ‘EDF Lab Les Renardières’, one of three R&D centres of Électricité de France located in Écuelles (Seine-et-Marne).

A hydrogen production station, a compressor up to 450 bars and several storage racks will be mobilised to recreate the filling circuits at real size and to evaluate the behaviour of the equipment under optimal observation conditions.

Representatives from Alstom and Hynamics said, “This partnership will enable us to optimise the hydrogen distribution infrastructure and the rolling stock made available to operators. This is a project that presents many opportunities for the decarbonisation of transportation and the development of sustainable mobility.”
