Plug Power Inc., will be showcasing its comprehensive GenKey hydrogen fuel cell solution during the 2014 WERC (Warehousing Education and Research Council) tradeshow and conference being held at the Chicago Hyatt Regency.

Plug Power’s GenKey solution is comprised of three separate elements: GenDrive fuel cell units, GenFuel hydrogen fuel and infrastructure, and GenCare maintenance service. Plug Power provides full integration and deployment of the entire GenKey package for customers to ensure seamless transition to hydrogen fuel cell-based power for their material handling operations.

At WERC, Plug Power’s Vice President of Sales and Hydrogen, Erik Hansen, will speak in the supplier presentation theatre on Tuesday the 29th of April from 1pm to 1.30pm CT. Mr. Hansen’s presentation topic is “The Commercialisation of Hydrogen Fuel Cell Solutions: Proven, Reliable, Economical.”

Finally, Plug Power will be hosting a tour at the nearby Central Grocers distribution center where invited guests will see a fleet of 250 GenDrive-powered lift trucks in operation. Central Grocers has been operating GenDrive units as the sole power source for its lift truck fleet since 2009, when its new state-of-the-art facility in Joliet, Illinois first opened.

The GenKey promotion at WERC puts into context how the solution’s elements complement one another to enhance the material handling customer’s experience with Plug Power’s hydrogen fuel cell offering. GenKey takes complexity out of the equation for the customer by delivering a complete range of services to dramatically simplify the entire process. Plug Power customers like Kroger and Walmart are among those already taking advantage of the significant benefits offered through GenKey adoption.

WERC is the leading conference for logistics management professionals, providing attendees a way to learn about new products and services through meetings with industry suppliers. The Plug Power team will be available in Booth 213 throughout the show to provide information on GenKey.
