The world's first hydrogen-powered rail milling train MG11 Hydrogen from Proton Motor`s Austrian customer Linsinger Maschinenbau was recently been able to machine the tracks of the venerable "Traunsee Tram" and repair rail defects. By processing the tracks, the passengers of Stern and Hafferl Verkehrsgesellschaft are offered increased safety and comfort and the service life of the tracks is also significantly extended. Next stop for the Austrian innovation MG11 Hydrogen will be the rail system of the USA.
Hydrogen expert trip to partner countries Italy and Austria
In November, Austria – along with Italy – was the destination on the expert trip with the Bavarian Minister of Economic Affairs, Hubert Aiwanger. As the European market leader in the field of hydrogen technology in combination with fuel cells, Proton Motor Fuel Cell GmbH qualified for participation by Proton Motor Director "Governmental Affairs & Communication" Manfred Limbrunner in the selection procedere of the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs. Due to Bavaria's geographical location, the cross-border import routes of green energy were on the agenda in particular, for example from North Africa and Eastern Europe via the trans-Adriatic pipeline.
