AurigaGen fuel cell forklift power unit completes first trial

Friday, May 10th, 2019

  1. 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.
