Enel Green Power has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with transport agency FNM to supply inexperienced hydrogen options for Lombardy’s transport system.
The two corporations will produce inexperienced hydrogen utilizing renewable power to energy Lombardy’s railway community as a part of the “H2IseO” mission.
Enel Green Power and FNM will set up a joint working group tasked with figuring out and proposing essentially the most applicable options.
The H2IseO mission, promoted by FNM in collaboration with Trenord, will make it doable to create the primary Italian “Hydrogen Valley” in Lombardy, notably in Sebino and Valcamonica.

The mission’s essential targets are:
- The buy of recent hydrogen-powered trains, which, from 2023, will run on the non-electrified Brescia-Iseo-Edolo line. The trains shall be managed by FNM subsidiary FERROVIENORD.
- To substitute the present diesel-powered trains.
- To assemble hydrogen manufacturing services powered by renewable power.
Salvatore Bernabei, CEO of Enel Green Power, mentioned: “Thanks to this memorandum of understanding, the Enel Group’s dedication to advertise the event of inexperienced hydrogen is directed on the non-electrified rail transport sector for the primary time. We are always searching for to construct partnerships to establish the perfect functions for inexperienced hydrogen and thereby contribute to the decarbonization technique of our economies.”
Chairmanof FNM, Andrea Gibelli, provides: “One of essentially the most important options of the rules of our new Strategic Plan is mobility with zero environmental influence. The initiative for the creation of Italy’s first Hydrogen Valley seems to be to the longer term and is a part of a wider plan that goals to create mobility providers developed based on environmental, financial and social sustainability standards.

“In the H2IseO mission, we additionally plan to increase the hydrogen resolution to street transport by 2025, ranging from the roughly 40 autos managed in Valle Camonica by FNMAutoservizi (a 100% FNM firm). Sebino and Valle Camonica have the proper circumstances for the usage of hydrogen, with the involvement of the entire territory, in a provide chain and round financial system logic. The sturdy part of innovation that characterizes the H2IseO mission, the primary instance of complete decarbonization of native public transport, makes it a candidate to grow to be a mannequin to be replicated in different areas of the nation.”
Enel has marked inexperienced hydrogen as an important resolution within the firm’s power transition technique by partnering with numerous corporations and organisations in Chile, the United States and Italy.
