The eco-trains will be tested in 2020
There will be a test with a hydrogen train between Groningen and Leeuwarden. That was announced on Thursday during the Climate Summit North.
The hydrogen train will run at night somewhere in the first quarter of 2020. During the test, it will be examined whether hydrogen trains are a solution for more sustainable train transport.
The pilot is about retrieving as much information as possible and practical experience. There will be no passengers on the train during the test.
The test is an initiative of Arriva, ProRail, Alstom, Engie and the Province of Groningen.
