About the Collaboration and Siemen's Mireo

As per the terms of the development agreement, Ballard will develop a 200-kilowatt fuel cell engine which will be integrated into Siemens' new Mireo train platform. Siemens' Mireo is a modular commuter train platform which is designed for speeds of up to 160 kilometers per hour (100 miles per hour). Mireo has a lightweight design, energy-efficient components and intelligent onboard network management which will enable Mireo to reduce its energy consumption by 25% compared to trains with similar passenger capacity. Mireo trains using Ballard's fuel cell engine are expected to be launched in FY21.

Siemens' Mireo has already received a positive response from the rail industry. DB Regio AG, the local transport arm of Deutsche Bahn was the first regional transport operator to commission 24 Mireos for its Rhine Valley rail network in March 2017. It placed a second order of 57 Mireo trains in August 2017 to be operated on the Rhine-Neckar network as a regional and commuter train.

Commenting on the collaboration, Randy MacEwen, President and CEO of Ballard, said:

"We are seeing rapid market demand growing for clean energy fuel cell technology in a range of Heavy Duty Motive applications, including trains, trams, transit buses and commercial trucks. This Development Agreement with Siemens, a major industrial conglomerate and leading global train OEM, is a testament to the overall value proposition offered by Ballard's fuel cell technology in a demanding use case and duty cycle. In this application, fuel cells enable electrification with range, without the need for costly catenary wire infrastructure."

Sabrina Soussan, CEO of the Mobility Division at Siemens, added:

"Our cooperation with Ballard is a decisive step towards replacing diesel-powered rail vehicles with emissions-free vehicles in the long-term interests of sustainable and climate-friendly mobility. We want to be able to offer our customers flexible train solutions for various suburban routes, which vary according to regional conditions and technical possibilities."
