Linde System Refuels Hydrogen Powered Passenger Trains

Sept. 26, 2022
Linde’s hydrogen refueling system, which it built, owns and operates, reportedly will refuel 14 hydrogen-powered passenger trains, enabling each train to run for 1,000 kilometers emission-free on a single refueling.

Linde says it has inaugurated the “world's first hydrogen refueling system” for passenger trains in Bremervörde, Germany. Linde’s hydrogen refueling system, which it built, owns and operates, reportedly will refuel 14 hydrogen-powered passenger trains, enabling each train to run for 1,000 kilometers emission-free on a single refueling. It has a total capacity of around 1,600 kg of hydrogen per day, making it one of the largest hydrogen refueling systems ever built, according to the company. Linde’s hydrogen refueling system is designed and constructed to integrate future on-site green hydrogen generation. The new hydrogen trains will replace existing diesel-powered trains.

“Linde is committed to making a significant contribution towards decarbonizing transport in Europe,” says Veerle Slenders, president region Europe West, Linde, in a press release from the company. “We are proud that Linde’s innovative technology plays a key role in supporting this project and establishing a blueprint for cleaner public transport systems around the world.”

“The world's first hydrogen train, the Coradia iLint, demonstrates a clear commitment to green mobility combined with the latest technology,” says Müslüm Yakisan, president of Alstom in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. “We are very proud to see the first series operation in action together with our partners Linde, LNVG and evb.”
