Fuel cell powered hybrid multiple unit 2 – H2FC technology deployed in actual railway operations

This project is the first in Europe to investigate the usability of hydrogen fuel cell technology in actual railway operations. It involves validating two rail vehicle prototypes powered by hydrogen fuel cells, approving these for regular operation and testing them in scheduled demonstration operation with passengers. The project continues the predecessor NIP-funded project BetHy, which culminated in the construction of two prototype vehicles.
