China, which launched the Hydrogen Train, has now become the second country in the world to have its own hydrogen-powered train. It has been manufactured by CRRC Corporation Ltd, a state-owned company in China. According to the New Atlas report, the speed of this hydrogen train is 160 kilometers per hour. If we talk about its autonomy, once the gas is full of fuel, it can travel up to 600 kilometers. Germany has already commissioned the train and 14 hydrogen trains have been launched in the country. But comparing the speed, China’s train is ahead here. The speed of Germany’s hydrogen train is said to be 140 kilometers per hour.
China’s CRRC is said to be the world’s largest rail transport manufacturing company. Chengdu Rail Transit is its first hydrogen rail transit in the country. If we talk about mileage, here China’s train is behind Germany’s hydrogen train because Germany’s hydrogen train can run up to 1000 kilometers on gas fuel in one go. Recently, it was also revealed in the news that the country increased its range to 1175 km.
Germany was the first in the world to introduce the hydrogen train. These trains were manufactured by the French company Alstom. A fuel cell is used in the train in which hydrogen gas is filled. They are mounted on the roof of the train. When it meets oxygen it forms water. This process generates energy that is used to run the train. The special thing about hydrogen energy is that it does not cause air pollution, nor does it cause any kind of noise pollution.
