  • Hyster sit-down electric forklifts, pallet trucks, pallet stackers and narrow aisle reach trucks powered with Nuvera fuel cell systems provide a fast-fueled power option that replace lead acid batteries. The Nuvera hydrogen fuel cells are designed and built to provide customer return on investment over the lifecycle of the product.

     

    In an effort to increase productivity and operational efficiency through clean, non-combustive, nonemissive and sustainable technology, Canadian Tire Corporation (CTC) chose hydrogen fuel cell technology to replace lead acid batteries to power forklifts in two Ontario distribution centers. Wajax Equipment, the exclusive dealer for Hyster® across Canada, will deploy the fuel cells manufactured by Nuvera Fuel Cells and provide comprehensive repair and maintenance services for these clean hydrogen fuelled systems. CTC conducted five years of testing and evaluation on hydrogen fuel cells and the expertise Hyster® provided in mobile equipment and direct involvement in supporting its subsidiary Nuvera was a contributing factor to the selection of their fuel cell technology.

    Operational Benefits:

    Increase productivity

    Use of hydrogen fuel cells in materials handling is becoming more prevalent because they offer the benefits of electricity with the convenience of fuel.

    Reduced energy use

    Generating hydrogen on-site from natural gas and water can significantly reduce your electrical consumption, and help avoid costly peak demand charges.

    Support sustainability initiatives

    With lower greenhouse gas emissions compared to lead acid batteries, fuel cells offer the benefit of minimal environmental impact.

    Healthy workplace

    Once installed, fuel cell systems remain in truck – no handling to repower, no sulfur off-gassing, and zero emissions – all to improve workplace health.

    Space savings

    Implementing hydrogen fuel cells allows the removal of battery charging and changing stations, helping reclaim significant indoor space.
