Press Release, Greenville, South Carolina, September 30, 2018Infintium, a provider of Hydrogen Power Cells for motive applications, has gone live with their advanced ‘Power Cell’ line of fuel cells for the material handling industry at Daimler (Mercedes-Benz) manufacturing facility in Vance, Alabama.. This fuel cell deployment is comprised of both air-cooled and liquid-cooled Power Cell designs covering a wide range of applications, including Class 1 & 3 lift trucks and Autonomous Guided Tuggers (AGT’s).
This ‘go-live’ event was the end result of an extensive year of production testing at Mercedes in a variety of material handling applications. “Our hydrogen Power Cells underwent thousands of operational testing hours” said Thomas Lynch, CEO of Infinitum, “We now have the actuarial data to prove that our smart design exceeded Mercedes’ desires to achieve greater reliability and higher fuel efficiency than previous fuel cell designs. AGT’s in particular require fuel cells to operate continuously for months without interruption and Infinitum Power Cells met this demand.”
Mercedes-Benz was an early adopter of fuel cells for their material handling equipment more than five years ago. Denver Rash, Material Handling Engineer, who guided the original move to hydrogen fuel cells for Daimler, stated, “We have been looking for the next generation of fuel cell design” and “Infintium’s smart design achieved everything we were looking for to increase both reliability and hydrogen efficiency of our fleet.”
