CANADIAN companies, LiftOne and Engineered Solutions, have unveiled two hydrogen-powered fuel cell lift trucks.

The lift trucks have been equipped with HyPX Fuel Cell Power Packs manufactured by Hydrogenics of Toronto, Canada and installed by LiftOne in Linde electric lift trucks.

Both units have commenced their deployment at Michelin’s Columbia plant.

Michelin is the first customer to accept the new units to evaluate their performance and their capabilities.

In addition to being zero emission, a fuel cell power solution also provides continuous full power for the full duration of a shift, while eliminating the need for batteries or charging/changing equipment.
