This week, CAF has started dynamic track testing of the hydrogen-powered demonstrator train being developed for the FCH2RAIL project. During the dynamic tests, the hybridization of the fuel cells and the batteries is optimized on representative routes for commercial services. This also means that the new systems will be fully tested under a wide range of different power demand conditions.
