Alstom and Eversholt Rail partner to produce hydrogen-powered trains in UK [free access]

July 24, 2020

Alstom and Eversholt Rail have partnered to produce a new class of hydrogen-powered trains to decarbonise the UK rail sector. The partners will invest GBP1 million in the new Breeze trains, which will be re-engineered versions of the Class 321 fleet by Eversholt. Alstom will use its hydrogen-powered train technology that has been deployed previously in the Coradia iLint trains.

 

The new hydrogen-powered trains will fill the gap in zero-emission services for regional rail lines where electrification of lines is not possible.
