New German rail hydrogen project

BREMEN/BREMERHAVEN/HAMBURG. Since January, the new joint project “sH2unter@ports” has been addressing the question of how the operation of shunting locomotives in the port can be implemented in a climate-neutral way. There are six partners – Elbe-Weser Transport and Railways and Transport company (evb), Smart Mobility Institute at Bremerhaven University of Applied Sciences, Institute for Energy and Circular Economy at Bremen University of Applied Sciences (IEKrW), Alstom, bremenports and the Hamburg Port Authority – who are working towards the goal of converting shunting locomotives in Bremen and Hamburg port areas to run on hydrogen.
