Ne-Train, the Fuel Cell Powered Train… Ready for 2007!

First of all, a thank you to Kimura-San, our beloved accountant (a necessary evil), for finding this piece of news. The Japanese railway system is one of the most dense in the world, and implementing such a system requires a lot of R&D. JR (Japan Rail) has been working on non-polluting energy powered trains for the past 3 years, and the Fuji Sankei Business magazine has an article on the progress of the “NE Train” project. This Fuel Cell powered train uses 65kW fuel cells to get to a speed of 65km/h, and this train will hit the Japanese rails in 2007! It will run on the non-electrified line between Nagano and Yamanashi.

    Would be nice indeed, but as far as I know I never heard about a boat or a fuel Cell Plan… would be fun as well

    Don’t get me started on fuel cell boats chemistry. I just came home from a SAC (School Assesed Coursework) for my final year at highschool… But it would be sweet to have fuelcell oil tankers, heaps of energy would be saved!
