World’s first Hydrogen train launched in China.
The world’s first hydrogen energy urban train with independent intellectual property rights jointly developed by CRRC Changchun Railway Co and Chengdu Rail Transit officially rolled off the assembly line in Chengdu, Southwest China’s Sichuan province, on Wednesday.
The train adopted the key core technology of the Fuxing bullet train, with a maximum speed of 160 per hour.
The train has a built-in “hydrogen power” system, which provides a strong and durable power source that can archive a long battery life of 600 kilometers according to Chengdu daily.
The hydrogen energy city train adopted an energy supply mode that combines hydrogen fuel cells and supercapacitors to replace the original catenary power supply system. The energy is generated by the electrochemical reaction of hydrogen and oxygen in the hydrogen fuel cell and the reaction product is only water without any nitrogen and sulfur byproducts the reaction process is stable and the noise is low
