Adopting hydrogen fuel cell-powered lift trucks makes financial and operational sense
What if your materials handling operation could achieve higher operational productivity, eliminate cumbersome battery charging infrastructure and deliver consistently high performance? It may be possible with lift trucks powered by hydrogen fuel cells.
There are four major benefits to adopting hydrogen fueled lift trucks:
- Increased uptime
- Smaller footprint
- Constant power
- Lower emissions, lighter impact
- Operations best suited for fuel cells
A fuel cell is an energy conversion device used to capture and use the power of hydrogen. It produces electricity from hydrogen and oxygen, with water vapor and heat as the only byproducts. Since these byproducts don’t produce any emissions or pollutants, hydrogen fuel cells serve as an ideal choice for warehouse, manufacturing, retail and food applications. A steady, cost-effective supply of hydrogen is critical to the success of any hydrogen dependent operation and is an important requirement for any decision maker considering the implementation of hydrogen fuel cell-powered lift trucks. Hydrogen delivery and on-site hydrogen production are two of the major methods used in today’s market.
