“Siemens Mobility and DB will jointly develop the next generation of a hydrogen traction system – a complete system consisting of a hydrogen-powered train and infrastructure, including a new and innovative fuelling station that can quickly refuel the train in just 15 minutes,” said Michael Peter, CEO of Siemens Mobility.
“The train will have 1.7MW of traction power providing up to 1.1m/s2 acceleration and a top speed of 160 km/h. This innovative technology will make hydrogen-powered train operations faster, more efficient and more environmentally friendly"
“This project proves that Deutsche Bahn is not just a mobility company, but a technology group as well. We need to bring our fossil fuel consumption down to zero. Only then can DB be climate-neutral by 2050,” added Professor Sabina Jeschke, DB Board Member for Digitalisation and Technology.
