The Pesa hydrogen locomotive arrived at the Żmigród test site


The Pesa hydrogen locomotive has arrived at the Żmigród test site.

The Pesa Bydgoszcz shunting locomotive is entering the most important stage – the Railway Institute certification tests. This evening the locomotive arrived from Bydgoszcz to the test site. It is reported by Railway Supply magazine with reference to Nakolei.

Dynamic tests begin, in particular those related to hydrogen refueling. An integral element of these tests will be a mobile service station. This solution was presented by Pesa and Orlen at the InnoTrans exhibition in Berlin.

It should be noted that the locomotive has already passed preliminary tests at the Pesa plant. In August, the hydrogen diesel locomotive was put into operation and successfully passed the first test runs. Meanwhile, in September, the locomotive went to Berlin for an exhibition, where a statement was made by President Krzysztof Zdziarski.

President Krzysztof Zdziarski, said:

After the exhibition, it will pass the final acceptance tests in Żmigród and will be put into operation in the first quarter of next year at the PKN ORLEN plant in Płock.

The Pesa program is ambitious. The manufacturer assumes that by the end of the year it will be able to close the issue of preparing documentation and transfer the documents to the Department of Railway Transport. Approval will therefore finally be received in the first quarter of 2023.

If successful, the SM42-6Dn will become Poland’s first certified hydrogen locomotive. In addition, it will be the first locomotive of this type homologated for the European market.
