Fuel Cell Power
for Material Handling
Constant Power + Fast Refueling = Higher Productivity
Nuvera® fuel cell power systems are designed for reliability, performance and efficiency.
Fuel cells can be refueled as quickly as three minutes. When it comes to multi-shift operations with two or more battery replacements per day, the quick refueling of hydrogen fuel cells offers substantial productivity benefits over lead acid battery changing and charging.
Fuel cell systems are a safer alternative to lead acid batteries and internal combustion engines. Once installed, fuel cell power systems remain in the vehicle — no battery changing, no sulfur or hydrogen off-gassing, and zero emissions — all supporting a healthier workplace.
Removing lead acid battery chargers, changing stations, and washing facilities can help reclaim significant square footage inside your facility. Fuel cells also allow you to reassess electrical capacity, waste management, venting equipment needs, workflow, logistics, and other operational requirements.
Fuel cells reduce fleet energy use compared with lead acid batteries and internal combustion engines and afford significant greenhouse gas reductions. Fuel cells eliminate the emissions of diesel and propane trucks, and the off-gassing of sulfur and hydrogen associated with lead acid batteries.
Changing the Lift Truck Business
As a subsidiary of Hyster-Yale Group (HYG), Nuvera brings power alternatives for lift trucks to a global provider of materials handling equipment - and the capability to repower competitor forklifts as well.
– Power systems designed by Nuvera with the direct involvement of HYG forklift engineers for validation in demanding material handling environments
– Sales, service and parts from a global dealer network
