As we informed earlier, ITM Power had signed an agreement with M&S to deliver the UK’s first hydrogen fuel cell, materials handling trial using on site hydrogen generation. Over the six week trial, ITM Power’s HFuel platform generates hydrogen to fuel several fuel cell vehicles as a direct substitute for part of the existing battery powered fleet. The vehicles were deployed at M&S’s 1.1million sq. ft. Prologis Park Distribution Centre.

The trial forms part of the M&S Plan A initiative, and aims to deliver zero emission vehicles with superior performance and a fast refuel time. The trial is the first of its kind in the UK and demonstrates the cutting edge vision of M&S and ITM Power.
