Network Rail approves use of BOC’s hydrogen fuel-cell range

BOC, a supplier of industrial gases and related equipment, has announced that its Hymera range of hydrogen fuel-cell-based products has been approved for use by Network Rail.

Developed by BOC with off-grid applications in mind, the Hymera range is said to be suitable for use in remote or difficult-to-access locations. It is designed to be virtually silent, which is important for work at night or in built-up areas.

Its light weight, even with the associated 54ZH portable hydrogen fuel cylinder, means that it is less cumbersome than conventional generators.
