The project is divided in the following main tasks:

  1. Identifying hydrogen sources in Czechia
  2. Collection of rail line data
  3. Analysis of data by single-train simulation (SINTEF's main activity)
  4. Result analysis and reporting

The consortium, in addition to SINTEF, is composed of ÚJV Řež (project leader), University of Chemistry and Technology Prague, VUZ and HYTEP.
