Deutsche Bahn will have hydrogen-powered trains to replace its fleet of 1,300 diesel locomotives by 2050.
That’s the goal unveiled in 2020 under the H2goesRail project which looks to pioneer clean transportation.
Today (Jan 6), however, an update on this landmark project was announced, with Green Hydrogen Systems confirming that it will supply electrolysis equipment for H2goesRail.
In a social media post, the firm said it its GHS HyProvide® A90 electrolyser, with a capacity of 0.5MW, will produce hydrogen to fuel the Siemens train which will run under the project.
It is believed the electrolyser site will be built in 2024 and, once constructed, will have an annual production capacity of approximately 71,000kg of green hydrogen.
On the news, Søren Rudbrik, Chief Operating Officer at Green Hydrogen Systems, said, “As a country with a highly advanced hydrogen research landscape, Germany has the potential to become a global leader in the associated green hydrogen technologies.
“At Green Hydrogen Systems we are working on multiple projects in Germany, and we are thrilled that our electrolysis technology was selected for yet another one which will contribute to Germany’s energy transition.”
