As mentioned in my other thread:

Marine looks like it would be the primary market and there are already Marine Hydrogen powered tugs in the works

The Marine version of the 710 is Tier 4 certified using after treatment. 

I don't know enough about using Hydrogen as a Diesel replacement to have an opinion. I saw that in some of those tugs, there's support for a Diesel/Hydrogen blend as well as a pure hydrogen solution.

For the railroad application, I'm not sure what the implications are. Where is it stored? What added equipment to use it?

Is the 2 stroke 710 a better platform for Hydrogen than a 4 stroke diesel?
