tpgroup supports the HydroFLEX train debut at COP26

15 Nov 2021

tpgroup is part of a British-based supply chain that has delivered the UK’s first hydrogen-powered train in less than 12 months. The HydroFLEX train was showcased by rolling stock company Porterbrook, in partnership with Network Rail, at COP26 in Glasgow last week where it made its first passenger journeys.

tpgroup is the prime contractor for the integrated hydrogen fuel cell system on the HydroFLEX. Its role has covered preliminary consulting work around the system requirements and configuration through to providing the hydrogen fuel cells. It also designed and manufactured critical electrical components and cabling for the system.

The work was carried out by specialists within tpgroup’s atmosphere management systems business based in Portsmouth, Hampshire.

The programme has seen over £7m invested by Porterbrook to demonstrate how green-hydrogen and innovative engineering can accelerate the delivery of a greener rail sector. It also successfully created the UK’s first hydrogen rail supply chain covering over 30 businesses, many new to rail.

The HydroFLEX train at COP26 included an ‘on-board boardroom’, giving invited special guests the chance to use the train to support the globally significant discussions that were taking place in and around the international event.
