Our Applications

Proton Motor serves stationary and automotive as well as maritime application areas and railway traffic with holistic energy supply concepts. Applications for buses, commercial vehicles, trains, ships and stationary power generation are part of the company`s competence portfolio respectively a sign of entrepreneurial innovation strength.

Hydrogen as an eco-friendly energy carrier is also a gain for the rail sector – and not only for the passenger transport. For rail maintenance, emission-free CleanTech innovations are needed. The world premiere of the rail milling train with hydrogen fuel cell drive is based on the technology development of Proton Motor.

In Brief
Customer / Delivery
Linsinger Maschinenbau GmbH, Austria / 2021
Fuel Cell System
Proton Motor HyRail® Multi-Stack System
Fuel Cell Capacity
214 kW

The world market leader for rail milling machines, the Upper Austrian “Linsinger Maschinenbau Gesellschaft m.b.H.”, launched the lead project “MG11 H2” in 2020. In the summer of 2021, Proton Motor delivered the tailor-made hydrogen fuel cell system HyRail® with 214 kW of installed fuel cell power for the first special railway construction machine of its kind.

Proton Motor’s HyRail® multi-stack fuel cell system consists of two fully redundant systems of 107 kW each. The high-performance milling machine “MG11 H2” has a purely electric travel drive, whereby hydraulics are also completely dispensed with for the working units. This provides an answer to the increasingly strict regulations regarding the environmental factors exhaust gases and noise pollution with regard to the rail milling machines that have always been operated with diesel engines.

Particularly in underground tunnels, the new machine type based on future-oriented alternative energy supply H2 represents an improvement from an ecological point of view in favour of the targeted CO2 neutrality. In addition, the health of the operating crew on the track should also benefit from the emission-free milling concept, which eliminates dust pollution.
