Talgo presents its hydrogen-based propulsion system



Talgo has presented its hydrogen-based rail vehicle propulsion system, a modular solution that can be installed on all types of trains, but has been specifically designed for the Urban and Medium Distance Vittal platform, with which Talgo competes in various bidding processes in Spain and other countries.

 This system uses hydrogen batteries that provide the energy for the train's electric motors, and it is powered by renewable energy sources, such as solar photovoltaic or wind. The system is complemented by batteries that increase the speed of the train when it starts, taking advantage of the braking system to recharge it.

Hydrogen technology is an emission-free alternative to operate railway lines that do not have catenary electrification systems and which today depend on trains powered by diesel engines, without the need for costly and lengthy adaptation operations, and without the use of fossil fuels.
