The French railway company SNCF has announced its intention to draw a line on diesel locomotives in the coming years. These would then be replaced by a more ecological alternative, hydrogen.
In a desire to make the French rail network more ecological. Last Friday, Guillaume Pepy, President of the SNCF, unveiled the ambitious plans of the National Railway Company for the coming years.
The central goal is to gradually replace the last locomotives running on diesel by 2022, to completely eliminate it by 2030 to 2035.
The company is going to be deeply involved, because it is a real solution: but a change that involves a multitude of technical and logistical challenges.
