Rail News – Early April 2021

Toyota Motor Europe has secured a contract to supply fuel cell modules for a train project as a member of the Fuel Cell Hybrid Power Pack for Rail Applications (FCH2RAIL) consortium.

The consortium partners, including Belgium, Germany, Spain and Portugal, are developing and testing a new zero-emission train prototype.

Toyota Motor will be responsible for the supply and integration of fuel cell modules into the prototype as part of the FCH2RAIL project.

The core part of the FCH2RAIL project features a hybrid, bi-modal drive system that combines the electrical power supply from the overhead line with a fuel cell hybrid power pack, which consists of hydrogen fuel cells and batteries that work independently to the overhead line.
