Linde MH 24V Fuel Cell system wins the Best of Industry Award in the Drive Components category
The Linde HyPower 24V fuel cell system from Linde Material Handling (MH) received the most online votes and took first place in the Drive Components category of the Best of Industry Award 2023. The innovative hydrogen-powered energy system is used in pallet trucks and pallet stackers, double stackers, order pickers and tow tractors.
“We would like to thank all participants for their incredible support,” said Torsten Rochelmeyer, Senior Director Strategy & Solution Portfolio at Linde MH, at the award ceremony in Würzburg. “With the 24V fuel cell system, we can now offer our customers a vehicle, fuel cell system and service from a single source, underscoring our commitment to technology leadership. The Linde brand has the most comprehensive portfolio of energy solutions in the entire industry.”
The Best of Industry Award is a broad-based industry prize presented by various trade magazines including MM Maschinenmarkt of the Vogel Communications Group based in Würzburg, Germany. Any company that launched a new or enhanced product or solution on the market between June 2022 and March 2023 was eligible to apply. This year, a total of 20,000 votes were cast, with 160 innovations to choose from in 24 categories.
“The 24V fuel cell system is precisely tailored to the requirements of in-house material flow,” says Rochelmeyer, describing this special feature of the Linde HyPower 24V fuel cell system. Precise coordination with the powerful lithium-ion battery protects the fuel cell stacks, thus ensuring a long service life. The system is also noise-optimized and fully networked. Users also benefit from fast charging times of just a few minutes and zero emissions during operation. If the hydrogen comes from renewable sources, the vehicle’s entire footprint is carbon neutral.
