Toyota Motor Europe has supplied the first batch of power cell modules to the Spanish National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Testing Center Centro Nacional del Hidrogeno (CNH2) for rail transportation. The compact, flat configuration of the modules designed by Toyota allows the units to get built into the train roof for optimal packaging. The latest testing involves incorporating Toyota fuel cell modules into the Fuel Cell Hybrid PowerPack to combine overhead power with a hydrogen fuel cell module and batteries. This kit will power the train independently if necessary.

The compact, flat configuration of the modules designed by Toyota allows the units to get built into the train roof for optimal packaging. The latest testing involves incorporating Toyota fuel cell modules into the Fuel Cell Hybrid PowerPack to combine overhead power with a hydrogen fuel cell module and batteries. This kit will power the train independently if necessary.

In April, Toyota won a contract to supply fuel cell modules for a pilot hydrogen-powered pilot project to convert the Civia suburban train into a mime mode train alternative to conventional diesel locomotives. The FCH2Rail project aims to test the energy management technology in a hybrid set and see if it can be a reliable and viable solution for zero-emission hydrogen trains. The FCH2Rail project, worth EUR 14 million, is funded by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCHJU).

To date, Toyota has manufactured and tested six fuel cell modules, each based on a second-generation hydrogen fuel cell housed in Toyota's latest sedan, the Mirai. This unit is more compact and powerful than its predecessor and has helped the Mirai achieve a 30% greater range.

The National Center for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Experiments will test three modules paired with propulsion batteries and then send all six fuel cells to the CAF in mid-February, where they will be installed on a demonstration train.
