Food Distribution

Plug Power’s GenDrive fuel cell product offers a unique advantaPlug Power freezer fuel cellge for food distribution customers using pallet jacks, forklifts and other material handling equipment given its proven and maximum performance in environments as low as -22 degrees F. In comparison, a battery’s life can be reduced by 30% to 50% if its internal temperature reaches 30 degrees.

More than 70% of Plug Power GenDrive customers have a freezer space in their facilities. Hydrogen fuel cells continue to provide full power in cold operations, and they run up to twice as long per fill-up compared to battery-powered units. This not only allows operators to stay productive longer moving goods around, but also means fuel cell-powered lift trucks can remain in the cold storage facility for longer periods of time.
