Let’s Talk about Hydrogen

This article first appeared in the Railway-News magazine, Issue 4 2022 Rolling Stock edition.

Reviewing the Cummins H Class Event

As rail accelerates along its decarbonisation journey, Cummins is working with rolling stock OEMs worldwide to transition to the fuel cell–powered trains that significantly reduce emissions.

Cummins is the first company in the world powering hydrogen trains in commercial operation, so naturally, the company has learned a lot along the way.

On 15 August 2022, Cummins hosted its first ever rail hydrogen event created to enable the company’s new fuel and rail experts to share what they know and start new conversations with people from around the industry.

The event was called H Class – Cummins Rail Hydrogen School. You can watch the full event video here: www.cummins.com/new-power/applications/trains

Let’s look at what the Cummins industry experts had to say, and explore the core truth – that hydrogen is not just a part of the future of rail, but is changing the industry today.

A Hydrail Pioneer

To launch the event, Regina Barringer, General Manager – Global Rail and Defense, set out Cummins’s position as a pioneer in hydrail.

Regina said:

“We were the first engine manufacturer to receive tier 4 certification which we had 3 years ahead of the regulation.”

She also introduced the Cummins Destination Zero strategy with the aim to be a carbon-neutral business by 2050.

In Rail, Conditions Are Optimal

John Carroll, General Manager – Fuel Cell Mobility, explored the reasons why hydrogen is a solution for decarbonisation.

John focused on how the rail industry is ahead of the curve in terms of readiness to adopt hydrogen fuel cell technology.

John said:

“Rail is a great example where the conditions are optimal for many customers to implement solutions now. We must work together to tackle the climate crisis that requires action. The rail market is ready, and where we can work together to advance hydrogen technologies and build that scale.”
