FedEx outfits 35 battery-powered forklifts with hydrogen fuel cells
John King, FedEx project manager, decided that equipping all 35 electric forklifts with Plug Power Inc.'s fuel cell systems was the only way to go. The converted forklifts operate on hydrogen gas fed from FedEx's on-site, 6,000-gallon "smart" fueling station, which is equipped with a system that detects any potentially dangerous leaks. Refueling the fuel cell-equipped forklifts takes less than a minute and provides the heavy lifter with enough hydrogen to run all day long and deep into the night. Hat tip to Roy!
