Siemens Mobility orders 14 Ballard 200 kW gasoline cell modules for 7 trains; LOI for up 200 extra modules


Ballard Energy Methods introduced an order for 14 x 200 kW gasoline cell modules from Siemens Mobility GmbH, a number one provider within the improvement of other drives, to energy a fleet of seven Mireo Plus H passenger trains. Supply of the 14 gasoline cell modules is predicted to start out in 2023 with the fleet deliberate to be in service in Berlin-Brandenburg area in late 2024.


Along with the preliminary order of 14 gasoline cell modules, Siemens Mobility additionally signed a letter of intent with Ballard for the provision of 200 gasoline cell modules totaling 40 MW over the subsequent six years, together with a agency dedication on 100 of the gasoline cell modules totaling 20MW. The modules will probably be used for Siemen’s Mireo Plus H trains.

Siemens Mobility positions the Mireo Plus H as probably the most suited to long-distance routes, whereas the battery-powered Mireo Plus B trains are the only option for distances as much as 120 km relying on the configuration. Mireo Plus H trains obtain ranges of as much as 600 km as a two-part prepare, and from 800 to 1,000 km as a three-part prepare, relying on the road profile and mode of operation.

The hydrogen prepare is as highly effective as electrical a number of models. It contains a excessive traction energy of 1.7 MW for as much as 1.1 m/s² acceleration and a most pace of as much as 160 km/h.
