China launches world's fastest hydrogen-powered train
The world leader in the field of railway transport, the Chinese company CRRC (46 subsidiaries), together with Chengdu Rail Transit, created a hydrogen fuel cell train with a buffer supercapacitor.
The train consists of four cars and accelerates to 160 km/h, which is still a world record among trains of this class. Its energy potential is designed for a 600-kilometer run, it can move in an unmanned mode and is equipped with a 5G communication system.
At the moment, China is inferior to Germany, the leader in the production of hydrogen trains, where 14 trains of the Alstom series have already been built. So far, the only train from the Celestial Empire has surpassed its German competitors in speed by 20 km, although it is inferior in range by 400 km.
