The new hydrogen trains arrive in Milan: this is how they work

Fnm (Ferrovie Nord Milano), the main Lombard public transport group, invests in “green” rail transport. The first 6 hydrogen fuel cell trains arrive from Alstom | Courier TV

Alstom will supply 6 hydrogen fuel cell trains, with an option for a further 8, to Fnm (Ferrovie Nord Milano), the main transport and mobility group in the Lombardy region, for an amount of approximately 160 million euros. The first delivery of the trains (in the video you can appreciate the trains in action) is expected in about three years. “We are enormously proud to bring hydrogen trains to the Italian railway system, confirming Alstom’s role in anticipating and shaping the future of mobility – says Michele Viale, Alstom’s general manager in Italy. These trains, together with the Coradia iLint, the world’s first hydrogen-powered passenger train already in commercial service in Germany, represent a further step by Alstom in supporting the transition to sustainable transport systems on a global level “. The new hydrogen trains will be based on Alstom’s Coradia Stream regional railway model, dedicated to the European market and already produced for Italy by Alstom’s main Italian sites. The green version powered by hydrogen, Coradia Stream for Fnm, will be equipped with the same fuel cell propulsion technology introduced in the world by the Coradia iLint. The hydrogen version will guarantee the same operational performance as diesel trains, including autonomy.
