Manufacturing

Plug Power GenDrive for manufacturing marketManufacturing lines are driven by productivity and predictability – two items that GenDrive fuel cells can deliver for customers using pallet jacks, forklifts and other material handling equipment.  These customers are focused on the flow of operations and understand that a continuous flow of products means greater quantities of product off the line and out to customers.

GenDrive fuel cells are ideal for manufacturing customers because there is no questioning the speed and ability of your hydrogen lift truck, as long as there is fuel in the tank. Battery droop limits productivity on the floor. And, trips to the battery room mean undefined time waiting in line, down time and lost productivity.

Manufacturing customers move pallets of raw materials weighing up to 4,000 pounds, depleting batteries quickly. GenDrive fuel cells operate like a fully charged battery for the entire shift – always available and always at full power.
