Electric locomotive with water electrolysis / fuel cell technology for shifting in railway networks with and without overhead contact line
Original Language Title: 
Elektrolok mit Wasser-Elektrolyse-/Brennstoffzellen-Technologie für Verschub in Eisenbahnnetzen mit und ohne Fahrleitung

Objectives: 

The aim of the engineering/scientific cooperation is to develop an electric locomotive driven by water-electrolysis/fuel-cell energy-transform and hydrogen-storage-system for shunting with and without overhead wire-use. For the first time mobile use of the environmentally-friendly and not-resource-dependant technology, power electronics have been modified too.

By means of a new energy-management system, developed by HET, maximum fuel-cell efficiency will result. Development risks are based upon the proposed combination of PEM and high-pressure electrolysis and the mobile application itself. Apart from this, high economic benefit is likely due to low fuel costs and maintenance costs.
