Linde introduces world-first hydrogen train refuelling system

Woking-based Linde has introduced the world’s first hydrogen refuelling system for passenger trains. - BusinessMag

Linde built, owns and operates the new system in Bremervörde, Germany, where it will refuel 14 passenger trains powered by hydrogen. Each of these refuelings will enable the train to run for 1,000 kilometres without producing carbon emissions.

The system’s total capacity, of around 1,600kg of hydrogen per day, puts it among the largest hydrogen refueling systems ever built. The location has also been designed with space available to add on-site green hydrogen generation in future.

Linde is committed to making a significant contribution towards decarbonizing transport in Europe. We are proud that Linde’s innovative technology plays a key role in supporting this project and establishing a blueprint for cleaner public transport systems around the world.

Veerle Slenders, Linde’s President of Region Europe West

This latest news continues Linde’s momentum in the production, processing, storage and distribution of hydrogen. Along with operating the world’s first high purity hydrogen storage cavern, the firm also controls approximately 1,000 kilometres of pipeline networks.
