HYDROGEN IN THE LOCOMOTIVE INDUSTRY

By Keith Apps


Follow up on my article of the fourth,

We currently move large volumes of freight over the highway network and most of the vehicles use Diesel engines, as fossil fuels become more scarce an alternative will be required but also in the way we move goods around the Country.

 

In the past, the railways played a major part in freight movement.

 

With the advancement of liquid hydrogen in the locomotive industry trains should and could once again become of major importance in the freight industry.

 

To achieve this new freight terminals will be required and Orlando City is strategically placed to become a major part of the industry. 


Unlike diesel green liquid hydrogen can be produced where it is required and the road haulage industry will start to take advantage of this different type of fuel and hence reduce its reliance on fossil fuels and at the same time clean up its act.


A new freight terminal could offer up much-needed employment to a City such as Orlando.
