【氢动力列车首次投入使用:仅排放水蒸气】据报道,氢动力列车首次在德国投入使用,其通过氢、氧气体提供电力,生态友好型发动机可使用单罐燃料行驶620英里, 唯一的排放物是水蒸汽 ,2021年还将投入14辆车辆运输。相比传统化石燃料车辆,其单辆车费用较贵但运行成本低,且将极大地降低对环境的污染。

'World's first' hydrogen-powered trains are now in service across Germany: Eco-friendly engines can cover 620 miles on a single tank of fuel and produce only water vapour

  • Two bright blue Coradia iLint trains have begun running on a 62-mile route 
  • The locomotives were built by French firm Alstom who make the TGV bullet train 
  • Hydrogen fuel cells create electricity by mixing hydrogen and oxygen together
  • A further 14 of the green transportation vehicles will go into service in 2021

Germany has rolled out the world's first hydrogen-powered train signalling the start of a push to challenge the might of polluting diesel locomotives.

Hydrogen fuel cells are more co-friendly technology, creating electricity to power a battery and motor by mixing hydrogen and oxygen.

The only emissions are steam and water with excess energy stored in ion lithium batteries on board the train.

However, they are more expensive than the fossil fuel based trains commonly used in the region where they have been unveiled.

Two bright blue Coradia iLint trains, built by French TGV bullet train maker Alstom, began running a 62-mile (100km) route between the towns and cities of Cuxhaven, Bremerhaven, Bremervoerde and Buxtehude in northern Germany.

The Coradia iLint trains can run for around 620 miles (1,000km) on a single tank of hydrogen, similar to the range of diesel trains.

Alstom is betting on the technology as a greener, quieter alternative to diesel on non-electrified railway lines - an attractive prospect to many German cities scrambling to combat air pollution.

'The world's first hydrogen train is entering into commercial service and is ready for serial production,' Alstom CEO Henri Poupart-Lafarge said at an unveiling ceremony in Bremervoerde, the station where the trains will be refuelled with hydrogen.

Other countries are also looking into hydrogen trains, Alstom said, including Britain, the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Italy and Canada.

In France, the government has already said it wants the first hydrogen train to be on the rails by 2022.

'Sure, buying a hydrogen train is somewhat more expensive than a diesel train, but it is cheaper to run,' Stefan Schrank, the project's manager at Alstom, told AFP.
