Alstom's Coradia iLint is touring Germany in late January to mid-February 2019. Hydrogen fuel cell train is the first of its kind in the world. Alstom will introduce a ready-to-use hydrogen technology in six federal states and an alternative that does not contain emissions for non-electric lines. The Roadshow will start in Rheinland-Pfalz and continue in Baden-Württemberg, Saxony, Thuringia, Berlin and Brandenburg.
Jörg Nikutta Germany and Austria Alstom General Manager lar This Roadshow is a great opportunity for passengers, media and political stakeholders to recognize our Coradia iLint hydrogen train. Our technology is ready to use. It represents an environmentally friendly alternative to electric or partially electric lines and is much quieter and more comfortable than diesel multi-units.

Since September 2018, Alstom's first two hydrogen trains carry regular passengers in the Elbe-Weser network. From 2021, the 14 units of the Landesnahverkehrsgesellschaft Niedersachsen (LNVG), Cuxhaven, Bremerhaven, Bremervörde and Buxtehude will use the environmentally friendly fuel cell Coradia iLints train to transport passengers.
Coradia iLint is the world's first passenger train operating with a hydrogen fuel cell that produces electrical power for traction. This fully emission-free train is quiet and only emits water vapor and condensate. The Coradia iLint also incorporates several innovations: clean energy conversion, flexible energy storage in batteries and intelligent power management, and the available energy. Produced specifically for use on non-electric lines, it provides clean and sustainable traction while maintaining high performance.
Coradia iLint was developed by Alstom in France.
