Alstom And Liebherr Sign A Collaboration Agreement, In Order To Optimise Hydrogen Fuel Cells

The title of this post, is the same as that of this press release from Alstom.

The press release starts with these points.

  • Liebherr is developing air management technology that is particularly well suited to hydrogen fuel cells.

  • Alstom’s hydrogen strategy is part of its ambition to innovate by pioneering smarter and greener mobility solutions for all.

This paragraph then gives the basic outline of the agreement.

Alstom has signed a collaboration agreement with Liebherr – Aerospace & Transportation SAS, a France-based company specialising in the manufacture of compressors for fuel cells. This agreement is aimed at optimising hydrogen systems, including improving the reliability and durability of fuel cells, increasing their power density and reducing the cost of such solutions.

The press release gives a lot more details about Alstom’s hydrogen collaborations with other companies

Alstom seem very serious about hydrogen-powered trains.

  1. But when it comes to Hydrogen applications it’s Liebherr that are immersing themselves. There’s the cooperation with GM in producing an aircraft onboard fuel cell generator, two Chinese companies producing fuel cell drives for buses and of course their own development of hydrogen fuelled internal combustion engines.
    And then there’s Liebherr Mining’s collaboration with ABB to produce battery/trolley powered heavy haulage vehicles.
