About the project:

The objective of this project is to analyze the Czech railways and locate areas where hydrogen train technology would be a preferred technical, economic and environmental solution compared with other train technologies. This study will examine and collect initial data especially from the non-electrified railways where diesel train are operated. Through the methodology and software developed by SINTEF, the analysis will generate techno-economic analyses and make a comparison ranking of train technologies solution between diesel, battery, hydrogen and hybrid trains. The results will allow to identify preferred areas with a beneficial techno, economic and environmental outcome by deploying low-emission trains for replacing future decommissioned diesel trains on non-electrified railway.
