PKN Orlen will buy Poland’s first hydrogen-powered train

The deal is part of itsOrlen2030 strategy, which foresees growth in the importance of alternative fuels.

Built by the Bydgoszcz-based firm PESA, the SM42 locomotive will have, according to Orlen, an innovative and modern look.

“The company, within the framework of co-operation with PESA Bydgoszcz, plans to buy a modern locomotive, which will be the first rail vehicle in Poland to use hydrogen power,” PKN Orlen said, adding that the train’s official presentation would take place during the 14th TRAKO International Railway Fair in Gdańsk.

“The purchase of the first locomotive of its kind in Poland is a step in the direction of using zero-emission hydrogen fuel on a large scale in rail transport,” said PKN Orlen President Daniel Obajtek.
