World’s First Hydrogen Powered Train Launched in China with Top Speed 160 km/h

The world’s first hydrogen-energy urban train with independent intellectual property rights jointly developed by CRRC Changchun Railway Co and Chengdu Rail Transit officially rolled off the assembly line in Chengdu, Southwest China’s Sichuan Province, on Wednesday.

The train adopted the key core technology of the Fuxing bullet train, with a maximum speed of 160 kilometers per hour. This will be the first train which will run on hydro energy.

The train has a built-in “hydrogen power” system, which provides a strong and durable power source that can achieve a long battery life of 600 kilometers, according to Chengdu Daily.

Hydrogen energy is a clean, zero-carbon renewable energy, and it is an important new-energy choice to promote the “dual carbon” strategy.

The hydrogen-energy city train adopted an energy supply mode that combines hydrogen fuel cell and supercapacitor to replace the original catenary power supply system. The energy is generated by the electrochemical reaction of hydrogen and oxygen in the hydrogen fuel cell, and the reaction product is only water without any nitrogen and sulfur byproducts, and the reaction process is stable and the noise is low, said the report.
