Siemens Mobility and Tyczka Hydrogen signed Lol to cooperate in the hydrogen railway sector

Siemens Mobility and Tyczka Hydrogen have signed a Letter of Intent (LoI) establishing cooperation to accelerate the transformation towards hydrogen-powered railway mobility. Both companies have agreed to work together towards solutions across the full supply chain including hydrogen production, storage, distribution and refueling as well as delivery and maintenance of fuel cell trains.

Additionally, Smart Train Lease, a subsidiary of Siemens Mobility, offers hydrogen trains for rent.

The partnership of Siemens Mobility, Tyczka Hydrogen and Smart Train Lease will pave the way for a successful transformation of railways towards hydrogen mobility.

Albrecht Neumann said, “Delivering carbon-neutral mobility has never been easier. With Siemens Mobility, Smart Train Lease and Tyczka, three strong partners are now working hand in hand for the first time to serve the hydrogen rail market with new and alternative concepts along the value chain, such as offers for leasing trains as well as the corresponding hydrogen infrastructure and supply.”

Thomas Zorn said, “Green hydrogen fuel is a great solution to decarbonize heavy-duty transport operations. Based on fast refuelling times and long driving ranges, multiple-unit trains can run environmentally friendly without excessive electrification investments and equal route flexibility as with diesel. Through close collaboration and a holistic approach by Tyczka Hydrogen, Simens Mobility and Smart Train Lease, the implementation of fossil-free railway mobility becomes simpler for train operators.”

Benjamin Dobernecker stated, “Being smart means simplifying things and that includes offering our customers smart solutions for hydrogen infrastructure and Tyczka is the ideal partner for this.”

Hydrogen is one of the main technologies to decarbonize the railway sector by switching from fossil diesel to renewable fuels in particular on routes, which are hard to electrify. From the train operator’s perspective, an integrated approach towards fossil-free mobility does not only require hydrogen-powered trains and corresponding maintenance services but also needs to cover the entire supply chain for green hydrogen fuel.
