The hydrogen fuel cell train, developed by the French company Alstom, entered service in Germany.
The train, which is seen as one of the future public transportation vehicles that started its journey in Europe, is planned to commission 81 trains that are environmentally friendly with zero emissions by taking the energy of 14 million Euros from hydrogen.
The train called Coradia iLint uses a system that converts hydrogen and oxygen from the atmosphere into energy to generate electricity, and with the energy obtained, this train, which can carry 300 passengers, can reach a speed of 140 km per hour. Coradia iLint can also travel 600 to 800 kilometers.
Coradia iLint will serve the 100-kilometer zone in the Lower Saxony region of Germany. It is stated that the hydrogen fuel needed in the train is kept in the form of gas at the Bremervörde station on the operating route of the train.
It leaves only water vapor in the air and does not need electricity lines along the way.
