World’s first Hydrogen-powered metro train reaches 50mph in free trial run on test track

World's First Hydrogen-powered Metro Traoin

Salzgitter, Germany: The world’s first hydrogen-powered train recently took its maiden voyage, reaching 50 MPH in a passenger-free trial run on a test track in Salzgitter, Germany.

The zero-emission Coradia iLint train leaves only water vapour, completely silent, and integrates many different innovative elements to propel it down the track. These include clean energy conversion to create electricity, flexible energy storage via batteries, and smart management between traction power and available energy.

Hydrogen gas used for testing the train is essentially a waste by-product of industrial processes, and the future plan is to use wind energy to produce the hydrogen fuel needed.
