Hydrogenics, Alstom Partner on Hydrogen Fuel Cells for Trains

Hydrogenics Corporation has entered into a 10-year exclusive agreement, valued at more than 50 million euros, to supply Alstom Transport with hydrogen fuel cell systems for regional commuter trains in Europe. The agreement includes the supply of at least 200 engine systems, along with service and maintenance as necessary.

Alstom will develop the fuel cell systems, based on its Heavy-Duty HD series fuel cells, to meet European train compliance regulations. Prototypes should be completed later this year, with delivery of the first units in 2016.

“We are clearly excited by what this agreement represents,” said Daryl Wilson, chief executive officer of ­Hydrogenics. “Hydrogen is continuing to play an increasing role in mitigating the energy and pollution issues that fossil fuel-based transportation creates worldwide. The electrification of heavy duty transport leads to opportunities for efficient, clean hydrogen-based power solutions to play a critical role. Hydrogenics is pleased to work with industry leading and forward-thinking companies such as Alstom Transport.”
