Cummins-Powered Hydrogen Fuel Cell Trains Moving Down the Track to Austria
Low carbon passenger rail service powered by Cummins’ hydrogen fuel cell technologies is heading to Austria.
French railway manufacturer Alstom introduced the world’s first hydrogen fuel cell passenger train called Coradia iLint in Germany using the Cummins’ fuel cells. Following that successful test operation, Alstom’s Coradia iLint will run in Austria for the Austrian Federal Railways.
The train uses on-board fuel cells to convert hydrogen and oxygen into electricity, emitting only steam and water. Reaching up to 140 kilometers per hour (86 miles per hour), the train was specifically designed for use on non-electrified rail lines.
