Alstom wins the Europe 1 Mobility Trophy for its hydrogen train




Alstom has been awarded the Mobility Trophy for Coradia iLint, its hydrogen train, in the context of the French leading radio Europe 1 Trophies of the Future.

"Alstom is very proud to be awarded this trophy today. We strongly believe in the future of hydrogen trains, a technology that aims to replace the diesel trains in circulation on European networks. Coradia iLint is the outcome of five years of development by our engineers in France and Germany," said Thierry Best, Chief Operating Officer of Alstom, at the award ceremony.

Coradia iLint is the world’s first low-floor passenger train powered by a hydrogen fuel cell, which produces electrical power for traction. This zero-emission train is silent and only emits steam and condensed water. Coradia iLint is special for its combination of different innovative elements: clean energy conversion, flexible energy storage in batteries, and smart management of traction power and available energy. Coradia iLint is particularly suited for operation on non-electrified networks. It enables sustainable train operation while maintaining high train performance.

The first two trains are currently undergoing tests in Germany and are expected to transport their first passengers in the second half of 2018 in Lower Saxony, the first region to have ordered 14 hydrogen trains.

Coradia iLint was designed by Alstom's teams in Germany at Salzgitter, a centre of excellence for regional trains, and in France, notably Tarbes, a centre of excellence dedicated to traction systems and Ornans for the engines, with the contribution of the sites of Villeurbanne and Saint-Ouen.

Coradia iLint belongs to Alstom‘s Coradia range of modular trains, which benefit from knowhow spanning more than 30 years and proven technical solutions. More than 2,400 Coradia trains have been sold to date, and 1,900 are presently circulating in Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Canada.

The 2018 Europe 1 Trophies of the Future recognise men and women researchers, students, entrepreneurs, writers, citizens and elected representatives who, through their actions, want to make things happen and thus contribute actively to the construction of a sustainable and harmonious society.
