Proton Motor Fuel Cell partners in the rail segment
For modern rail maintenance, emission-free and noise-free CleanTech innovations are in demand.
The new rail milling train type MG 11 Hydrogen has now been presented to the public for the first time.
After successful production and delivery in 2021 of the hydrogen fuel cell system Proton Motor HyRail® to the Austrian customer Linsinger Maschinenbau Gesellschaft m.b.H., the new rail milling train type MG 11 Hydrogen has now been presented to the public for the first time.
Since 2021, there has been a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Czech company Thein Industry. At the international “Rail Business Days”, the subsidiary “Hydrogenic Technology”, which focuses on supplying solutions and integrating hydrogen technologies into rail and road transport, exhibited a trade fair display of Proton Motor.
Context here is that hydrogen fuel cells will complement Thein Industry’s portfolio with clean, green drive systems to accelerate the decarbonization of the transport transition.
For the hydrogen-powered special railway construction machine, Proton Motor has tailor-made the emission-free “HyRail®” solution as a multi-stack system with 214 kW installed power – consisting of two fully redundant systems of 107 kW each.
In addition to the world first “MG 11 Hydrogen” as an alternative to model series with diesel engines, Proton Motor is also established as a partner for other customer-specific rail projects. For example, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed in 2021 with the Prague-based company “Thein Industry” , whose subsidiary “Hydrogenic Technology” focuses on the supplying of solutions as well as the integration of hydrogen technologies into rail and road transport.
