PKN ORLEN and Alstom to cooperate on hydrogen railway

18 May 2022 - PKN ORLEN has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Alstom for the supply of zero-emission, eco-friendly trains and hydrogen fuel for public rail transport.


The corporation, which is consistently implementing the hydrogen strategy, announced earlier this year, that it will provide the refuelling infrastructure for trains produced by Alstom. The first hydrogen vehicles are likely to roll out on regional lines within two years. 


Under the agreement, Alstom will cooperate with PKN ORLEN in participating in proceedings organised by public rail transport operators. Alstom will be responsible for the supply of zero-emission trains powered by hydrogen fuel cells. In turn, PKN ORLEN will be responsible for the distribution, storage and supply of hydrogen fuel for these trains.
