Vivarail, designers and manufacturers of the Class 230 trains, and hydrogen fuel cell specialists Arcola Energy today announced a long-term collaboration.
The companies share a determination to help de-carbonise the UK’s transport system. Vivarail has already designed and run an emission-free battery train whilst Arcola lead the market in supplying power systems for efficient fuel cell electric vehicles, primarily buses, to the UK. Working together the companies will develop a hydrogen/battery hybrid train.
For the first time, bus company Winzenhöler GmbH & Co. KG will deploy a fuel cell bus in regular local public transport on the bus routes 671 and X71 of the Rhein-Main-Verkehrsverbund (RMV – the transport network of the Rhine-Main metropolitan area) near Darmstadt.

Concerned with preserving the environment, the Agglomeration Community of the Bassin d’Aurillac carries out many actions in terms of sustainable development. It works in particular to promote renewable energies and “green” mobility. A hydrogen production and distribution station has just been installed in the Aquatic Center car park (epicenter). It makes it possible to produce and store hydrogen energy through a simple supply of drinking water and electricity.
Prof. Chen Tsan-Yao recently developed a way of using ultrasonic waves to make tiny grooves on a metal surface, which in conjunction with an atomic-scale platinum catalyst can be used to double the efficiency of alkaline fuel cells.
