Material Handling vehicles (MHV) are essential in many industries and how they are powered can be very influential in terms of productivity. Because they are operated in an indoor environment, lead-acid batteries have traditionally been used to provide the zero emissions solution.
However, they are heavy and require long charging times, as well as requiring a large charging station to be located within the premises. Green hydrogen can be generated on-site and then used to refuel MHVs in seconds, enabling them to be back in operation much faster. Also, because hydrogen is a fuel, the performance of the vehicle does not change during use (unlike batteries which cause the vehicle to slow down as they approach needing to be charged).
