This is the world’s first hydrogen train

The train propelled by hydrogen verde jointly developed by Siemens y Deutsche Bahn has completed its first test trip, as reported by the German industrial company in a statement.

The Mireo Plus H, which is what the vehicle is called, you have completed this first journey to check how it works the process of replenishment of combustible using a mobile hydrogen storage station.

“This marks a decisive step with our partners towards the future of climate-neutral transport. The new Mireo Plus H train emits nothing but water. It has a range of around 1,000 kilometers, can reach speeds of up to 160 kilometers per hour and can be quickly refueled. Over its 30-year lifetime, a single train will save up to 45,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions, compared to traveling by car,” said Siemens CEO Roland Busch.

Hydrogen in the new mobility

The project is financed with 13.74 million euros by the Federal Ministry of Digitalization and Transport as part of the National Program for Technological Innovation of Hydrogen and Fuel Cells.

The Mireo Plus H will start testing in Baden-Württemberg in 2023. Starting in 2024, regular passenger service will be launched using the H2goesRail projectwhich operates between Tübinga, Horb y Pforzheim y diesel trains currently in use on that route will be replaced.
