In this connection, the advantages, disadvantages and financial consequences of a conversion of the current train fleet to propulsion with alternative green fuels, including green hydrogen, are among other things being looked at. To clarify this, Nordjyske Jernbaner has entered into a collaboration with Hydrogen Valley in Hobro, which must carry out a thorough analysis of the applicability of the various alternative and fossil-free fuels in Nordjyske Jernbaner’s existing train sets. The analysis must be very concretely based on the routes, train sets and operational patterns that Nordjyske Jernbaner works with today.
As another part of the analysis phase, Nordjyske Jernbaner also participates in the Interreg project “Green Jutland Corridor”, where, together with a large number of Danish and Norwegian partners, knowledge is shared about, among other things, the green transition and gain an insight into the various bases of experience.
At Nordjyske Jernbaner, we look forward to learning more about and uncovering which scenarios make the best possible sense for the environment as well as the economy on the North Jutland railways in the coming months. The board of Nordjyske Jernbaner will be presented with the report and the analyzes at the end of the year.
