Talgo to begin tests of its hydrogen train technology in 2021

Talgo to begin tests of its hydrogen train technology in 2021

(07/01/2021) 



On-track hydrogen technology validation tests will be carried out in a first phase in 2021. After its validation, the technology will be installed on the new train in a second manufacturing phase that will take place between 2021 and 2023. The train will be named Talgo Vittal-One, with One referring to the place of the hydrogen in the periodic table, the first one.

Talgo’s hydrogen system is configured as a modular solution that can be installed on all types of trains as well as in upgrades from diesel to hydrogen, but it has been specifically designed for the Vittal platform for commuter and medium-distance trains, with which Talgo competes in various bidding processes in Spain and other countries.
