Hydrogen fuelling stations using Linde technology have reached a major milestone – more than one million fills for the fuel cell driven material handling equipment at the BMW Manufacturing Co. LLC plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
Since 2010, the six million square foot BMW production facility has powered its entire hydrogen-fuel cell fleet with Linde technology.
BMW now operates more than 350 forklifts to service the plant’s production and logistics functions, making it one of the largest fuel cell forklift sites in the world.
“This is the most hydrogen fills at a single location anywhere in the world,” said Mike Beckman, Vice-President of Hydrogen Fuelling at Linde North America. “We are truly proud to reach this impressive milestone at the BMW plant.

Hydrogen is one of the most promising alternative fuels because it is safe, economic and efficient.”
