U.S. American Plug Power has teamed up with Linde Material Handling to advance the use of fuel cells in manufacturing operations in Europe. Linde already offers a range of vehicles, which Plug Power deems “fuel cell ready” and waiting to house their stacks.
The Plug Power Europe team says several warehouse vehicles including Linde’s P30C-FC electric tow trucks and E25-FC electric forklift trucks have been qualified by both Linde and Plug Power engineers for the integration of hydrogen fuel cells. Also two of Linde’s latest forklifts – the counterbalance truck E20FC and the reach truck R20FC – are fuel cell-ready and now available at Linde.
The cooperation of Plug Power and Linde is marked through their joint appearance at the World of Material Handling conference hosted by Linde in Mannheim, Germany that runs throughout June, 15.
