Spain / Talgo plans first hydrogen-powered train by 2023

Spanish rolling stock manufacturer Talgo plans to start operating its Vittal One hydrogen train by 2023. Talgo will carry out validation tests of a hydrogen-powered propulsion unit in early 2021, and between 2021 and 2023 it will be installed in the new train. The power unit uses hydrogen fuel cells to power the traction motors and is also supported by auxiliary batteries that are charged by regenerative braking. The system can also be installed in trains other than the Vittal One, and trains with diesel engines can also be converted.
