Angel Trains, the UK’s largest rolling stock company, has partnered with the University to support its hydrogen train project. The project entailed the conversion of a three-car Class 314 train to a hydrogen fuel cell electric powertrain.

In 2023, the University accepted a donation of a hydrogen electrolyser from Angel Trains which will form an integral piece of cutting-edge green hydrogen research. This will form an integral part of ongoing, cutting-edge green hydrogen research based at the Eden Campus.  

The electrolyser was key to enabling the trial to successfully demonstrate how a green-energy fuel cycle would work, which is a major step in getting hydrogen-powered trains up and running.

The donation of the hydrogen electrolyser follows the support that Angel Trains provided to the University, and other industry partners, in delivering Scotland’s first zero-emission hydrogen-powered train.
