Auriga Energy, supported by Bristol Forklifts, recently completed the testing of the AurigaGen FL prototype fuel cell power unit on a pallet truck. This hydrogen fuelled power unit is designed to replace the battery and provide a full shift of constant power between refuels. High productivity, a key requirement for material handling, is delivered through range extension enabling multi-shift operation with quick refuelling, without the need for battery recharging or spare batteries, and constant power across the duty cycle, enabling drivers to move more goods in a given period of time (i.e. more lifts and less downtime). You can watch a video of part of the test here.
