Hydrogen Fueling for Forklifts, Indoor and Enclosed Area Goods Transport

Every hour spent changing, recharging and maintaining lead-acid forklift batteries eats into productivity. Now, there’s an alternative. Hydrogen fuel cells can help enhance material handling operations through superior performance that helps to increase productivity. Air Products provides the hydrogen supply and fueling infrastructure for fuel cell power packs, which are direct replacements for the industrial batteries used in forklifts, automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and other material handling vehicles.

Benefits of hydrogen fuel powered forklifts:


Eliminates time-consuming recharging and swap-outs associated with batteries; vehicles are refueled once or twice per day and can be refueled in one to three minutes

Consistent power

Produces constant voltage, so industrial vehicles maintain constant speed throughout the workday

Zero emissions

The only emission from hydrogen fuel cells is water


Designed for simple, cost-effective installation and automatic operation for high reliability
