be employed as fuel, that hydrogen and

Rail Milling Train MG11 Hydrogen

World‘s first rail re-profiling without emissions


Be part of the change

LINSINGER wants to be part of the energy revolution and would like to actively contribute to future generations.

The production of hydrogen is relatively simple. Water is broken down into its components hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2). In the process, the electrical energy is converted into chemical energy and stored in the hydrogen. Electricity is generated from the hydrogen and air obtained; only water is a product of this conversion.

How safe are Hydrogen Trains?

Hydrogen is a very safe fuel and less flamable in the atmosphere than common fuel (petrol, diesel). The gas is stored in exceptionally solid tanks. Even in the extremely unlikely case of a gas leak, there will be no accumulation of gas. Hydrogen is fourteen times lighter than oxygen and therefore escapes faster and harmless into the atmosphere.

The handling of hydrogen is subject to strict safety guidelines. Defi ned tests are mandatory for machines and machine parts (e.g. pressure, tightness, burst and fire safety tests). Linsinger hydrogen rail milling trains meet the European safety standards.

How safe are Linsinger Hydrogen Trains?

An accompanying development test is conducted by TÜV Süd Rail GmbH who also carries the risk analysis in cooperation with Linsinger out.

The hydrogen storage tanks (= composite material tanks) are installed inside of the machine and therefore optimally positioned in terms of safety. These composite material containers consist of a plastic core which is wrapped with carbon fibres. The design allows hydrogen to be stored under high operational pressure and for years of use.
