Germany has passed tests of the first-ever passenger train on the hydrogen engine


It is capable to gather speed to 140 kilometers per hour that it is almost twice less, than at Russian "Sapsan". Unlike ordinary structure, hydrogen can almost silently and at one gas station to overcome up to 1000 kilometers of the Photo: René Frampe/Alstom the German engineering company Alstom has started the first-ever passenger train Coradia iLint working at hydrogen fuel elements. The structure moves almost silently, gathering speed to 140 kilometers per hour. On a roof are established the tank with hydrogen fuel and the fuel element transforming energy of hydrogen to electric current. Without refueling on one such Coradia iLint tank can pass 1000 kilometers. The manufacturing company notes that at development zero level of emission of harmful substances in the atmosphere, and exhaust gases are only steam and the condensed water. The independent analyst Dmitry Adamidov:dmitry Adamidov the independent analyst "Argues on prospects of trains on the hydrogen engine this history is connected, first of all, with environmental standards of the European Union, the requirement rather high there, plus is particularly acute a question of refusal of hydrocarbons enough. Here the given development quite keeps within. You can receive hydrogen not only from hydrocarbons, but also from hydrogenous connections. The matter is that after all it is slightly more expensive so far, than traditional internal combustion engines on organic fuel. Yes, the train is started, from the technical point of view it is made. To modestly hold back his technical characteristics, operational cost and expenses. I think that this good direction, it is necessary to develop environmentally friendly transport. Another thing is that it is not mass model, there will be a niche product why isn't present?" Two months ago in the Chinese Chengdu the first trip was made by the pilotless monorail train. But if in Germany hydrogen became fuel, then the Chinese train works completely at solar energy. In Russia in 2017 have started the eco-friendly train along a route St. Petersburg too — Adler. However, transport uses all the same diesel fuel, and eco-friendly he was called because the structure was pasted over with social advertizing about environmental problems.
