Siemens Mobility is due to deliver seven two-car Mireo Plus H trains in a commission by Niederbarnimer Eisenbahn (NEB) for the Heidekrautbahn network (RB27) in the Berlin-Brandenburg metropolitan region.

The second-generation trains due to become the region’s first hydrogen-powered trains, will include a fuel cell drive system and lithium-ion battery for CO2 emission free travel. 

Michael Peter, CEO Siemens Mobility said: “Today, traveling by train is by far the most climate-friendly way to travel. We are especially proud that our first order for a fleet of hydrogen-powered trains will also enable emission-free rail transport on non-electrified routes,”

“Our Mireo Plus H is a next-generation hydrogen train that combines innovation with sustainability. Thanks to its long range, faster acceleration, and state-of-the-art technologies, it will set new standards in zero-emission passenger transport.”

Detlef Bröcker, CEO Niederbarnimer Eisenbahn (NEB) said: “We are proud to operate the Heidekrautbahn, the first rail network in the Berlin-Brandenburg region that will be using hydrogen fuel cell trains.”
