Nuvera works with vehicle OEMs to design and manufacture fuel cell engines using Nuvera® fuel cell stacks. In addition to providing the core of the Nuvera® systems for forklifts and other industrial vehicles, the Nuvera® stack is ideal for other applications in industrial mobility, aerospace and transportation.
The Nuvera® fuel cell stack provides a unique design to achieve a quantitative leap in value for industrial and transportation markets.

Fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) have much to offer. FCEVs use electric motors for propulsion, which makes for a quiet, smooth acceleration with no shifting of gears. FCEVs excel in performance and convenience. A tank of hydrogen can be filled in minutes at a station much like any gas-powered car today. FCEVs can drive hundreds of miles on a single tank, meaning consumers do not need to change their driving habits or expectations. They perform well in all conditions, from summer to icy winters, and handle as well or better than other cars you’ve driven. Lastly, FCEVs emit nothing but water vapor, helping to improve local air quality.
The movement towards cleaner, more efficient transportation has been furthered around the globe with fuel cell buses. In many ways ideal candidates for fuel cell propulsion, transit buses are often found in congested areas where pollution is a problem. When compared to traditional diesel or diesel hybrid systems, zero-emission fuel cell-powered buses deliver economic, operational, and environmental benefits:
- Zero tailpipe emissions, except for water vapor
- Reduced greenhouse gas emissions
- Quiet and comfortable ride
- Improved fuel efficiency
Together with Hyster and Yale, Nuvera is developing the next generation of high-efficiency fuel cell power systems. This zero emissions power alternative for electric lift trucks is an alternative power source to lead acid batteries — it is quickly and conveniently refueled, easily installed, and eliminates the need for battery handling, charging and swapping.
Quiet operation and zero-emissions from auxiliary power units (APUs) and transport refrigeration units (TRUs) could mean that grocery trucks will be able to make deliveries at any time of day, without creating noise in the neighborhoods they serve or adversely affecting air quality.
