Cummins technology powers the Coradia iLint, the world’s first hydrogen passenger train.
Hydrail trains are driven by efficient electric motors – powered by high-output hydrogen fuel cells – an alternative to diesel combustion engines.
Hydrogen can be generated locally and emission-free, using renewable energy. Our market-leading electrolyzers generate hydrogen from water and electricity, often provided from off-peak surplus from solar, hydro-electric or wind installations – green energy that might otherwise be wasted. The hydrogen fueling infrastructure can also support fuel cell buses and trucks, reducing the dependence on fossil fuels for a variety of transportation applications.
At Cummins, we’ve spent decades helping regional operators and vehicle integrators manage smooth transitions to hydrogen powered transportation solutions, bringing our project experience to bear and building long-term support relationships. Over countless projects, we’ve provided our customers with the key ingredients for success: proven technology, focused execution, and committed customer service.
