H2M’s low pressure solid-state hydrogen storage tank. It is Loop’s first rail application.
The University of British Columbia Okanagan School of Engineering (UBCO) “will conduct computational modeling of H2M low-pressure tanks, comparing the hydrogen-electric powertrain performance characteristics and operational functionality with those of the previous diesel-electric locomotive,” according to Loop.
SRY has committed to the project “to prove out viability and demonstrate GHG [greenhouse gas] and other community impacts,” reported Loop, which noted that if successful, SRY “will be able to onboard the rest of [its] fleet,” with the possibility of transferring the technology to other railroads.
Providing partial funding for the project are the government of British Columbia through the BC Advanced Research and Commercialization program as well as the government of Canada through the MITACS and the Industrial Research Assistance Program at the National Research Council, Loop said.
Loop Energy Chief Commercial Officer George Rubin
“This is a monumental step in making zero-emissions rail transport a reality, through a safe and compact onboard hydrogen storage solution,” Loop Energy Chief Commercial Officer George Rubin said. “Combined with Loop Energy’s fuel efficient and power-dense 50kw fuel cell module, we’re delivering a stronger, more efficient locomotive model by harnessing the power of hydrogen and battery-electric.”
H2M CEO Grace Quan
“The introduction of a hydrogen infrastructure into rail yards reduces air contaminants and greenhouse gases and brings clean technologies, job growth and innovation to local communities,” H2M CEO Grace Quan said.
