We are pleased to announce our involvement in the Scottish Consortium that will help to demonstrate the future potential of hydrogen powered trains. AEGIS will provide third party safety assessment and compliance verification to deliver Scotland’s first hydrogen powered train and associated infrastructure.
AEGIS is delighted to have been selected to team up with Arcola Energy and partners for this prestigious project that will help to enable the Scottish Government’s objective of phasing out diesel only trains by 2035. With our growing portfolio of railway decarbonisation projects, AEGIS looks forward to working with industry leaders in hydrogen technology to assure the safe integration of hydrogen fuel cells into passenger rolling stock, enabling the rail industry to further develop this technology towards a carbon neutral rail network.” – Mark McCool, Managing Director.
