Hydrogen station for trains to be built in Germany by Linde


Linde will construct a hydrogen refuelling station for passenger trains in Bremervörde, Germany, which the industrial gases group claims will be the world’s first.

Construction is due to start in September and follows a successful 18-month trial of the world’s first two hydrogen trains in the region.

The station, expected to be operational in early 2022, will fuel 14 hydrogen-powered passenger trains which will be supplied by Alstom to the regional rail traffic provider LNVG, and will use the network of regional railway company EVB.
