Ballard Power Systems has signed a Master Supply Agreement (MSA) with Hyster-Yale Group encompassing the supply of minimum annual volumes of Ballard FCgen®-1020 air-cooled fuel cell stacks.
The stacks are to be used to power Class 3 lift trucks and support on the design of a fuel cell electric propulsion system to power these lift trucks. The MSA runs until 2022.
Hyster-Yale is a leading global lift truck OEM offering over 280 different lift truck models and generating consolidated annual revenues of $2.9bn. In 2014 Hyster-Yale’s acquisition of Nuvera activated a strategy to design purpose-built, optimised fuel cell-powered lift trucks, and put in place significant expertise and capabilities for fuel cells.
The collaboration with Ballard, Nuvera, and Hyster-Yale will focus on air-cooled stacks for low power applications, complementing the existing Nuvera fuel cell solutions.
An event highlighting the competitiveness of fuel cell buses and hydrogen (H2) produced from renewable energy for the future of clean, green public transport in Norway and throughout Europe is being sponsored by Ballard Power Systems.
Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are close to overcoming the key challenges that have so far held back greater adoption of fuel cell technology, new research shows.
Ballard Power Systems has received a purchase order from Van Hool NV for 40 FCveloCity®-HD fuel cell modules to power buses under the Joint Initiative for hydrogen Vehicles across Europe (JIVE) funding programs.
