Hydrogen Trains on German Rails
As early as next year on German tracks to hit are the latest trains created by French Alstoma, these are the machines named Coradia iLint that do not need traction for power supply, and are fully organic. They are equipped with hydrogen and emit only water vapour.
These trains have been developed to replace the which are still in common use diesel locomotives, which are used mainly for the carriage of goods. In the case of an order for 14 hydrogen trains made in Germany. Testing machines are to move later this year, and by the year 2017 they will have to hit the track replacing diesel units.
When this happens to EU neighbors will be the first country in the world where trains on the hydrogen will be in everyday use. Giving right example is most important to all countries in EU. By 2020 Netherlands will be coal free, also since last month Scotland generating electricity exclusively from the renewable sources.
