Opportunity Fueling, at your Service!
Developed by the GenFuel team, Plug Power’s dispensers are designed to interface perfectly with the GenDrive fuel cell to offer optimal fills. Plug Power’s dispenser includes a cascading system that optimizes fill pressure and reduces fill time. GenDrive fuel cells can be completely filled in as little as 90 seconds. That’s a significant improvement over 12 minute battery changes.
Refueling the GenDrive is simple!
Step 1: Operator drives up to the GenFuel dispenser at any point during their shift. The fuel cell does not need to be on “empty” to refuel.
Step 2: The operator connects three hoses – data cable, de-watering hose and fueling nozzle.
Step 3: While standing on the GenFuel safety mat, the operator presses the “START” button. The GenFuel dispenses pressurized hydrogen into the GenDrive on-board storage tank in as little as 60 seconds.
Step 4: Disconnect the cables and the operator is back on the floor and back to work!

In addition to meeting the latest hydrogen fueling regulations, GenFuel dispensers offer additional features to prevent operator errors:
- Depowering of the electric forklift during refill
- Monitoring of hydrogen tank temperature
- Safety pressure mat to ensure operators do not leave fueling stations during a fill
- Interior bollard/rail system for added safety
The proprietary GenFuel dispensers offer customers remote-monitoring capabilities, providing the ability to acquire real-time operational metrics and system notifications providing convenient access to fuel levels. Over 6,000 kg of hydrogen is dispensed from GenFuel stations daily, proving reliable in the most demanding environments.
