Latvian Railways' hydrogen-powered loco

On August 11th, Latvian Railways, CZ Loko, and Ballard Power Systems signed a MoU for producing a hydrogen-fuelled unit by rebuilding the diesel loco ČME3.

LDz Ritoša Sastava Serviss will be responsible for the construction, the Czech CZ Loko for designing and providing parts, while the Canada-based Ballard Power Systems will supply the hydrogen fuel cell technology. The project will be also supported by the Latvian Academy of Sciences.

The rebuilt loco besides no driving emissions on the point will have reduced noise and vibrations.
