Plug Power has expanded its contract with FM Logistic, making it the first traditional GenKey customer in Europe.

FM Logistic has worked with Plug Power for five years to decrease its carbon footprint and increase productivity and efficiency of the company’s fleet vehicles.

The expanded relationship will include an increased fleet of GenDrive fuel cells along with a GenFuel hydrogen refuelling station – Plug Power’s first in Europe – which will supply FM Logistic’s hydrogen capacity for the next five years.

“For years we’ve been able to offer our material handling and logistic customers with the end-to-end solution they needed, whether it’s fuel cell engines or hydrogen storage and dispensers,” said Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug Power.

“We are very excited to bring our customers in Europe the same services. Europe has been an area of focus for us this year, and this is a truly monumental step in proliferating hydrogen power.”

“Ensuring a steady supply of hydrogen is a foundational element of reliable hydrogen infrastructure, and we continue to be a driving force for the global solution.”

The deal with FM Logistics follows Plug Power’s announcement of a new partnership with StreetScooter and DHL, representing continued European growth.

“It’s been a pleasure to work with Plug Power over the last five years, and we look forward to continuing grow this partnership,” said Yannick Buisson, FM Logistic’s Directeur Général France.

“Plug Power’s GenKey offering will allow us to benefit from a unique, turnkey solution that aligns with our business and sustainability goals.”

“We have a corporate responsibility to ensure our options are green, and this partnership is a crucial one.”
