Hydrogen Fuel Cells Sustainably Drive GSE Operations Forward
Ground support equipment (GSE) is used in port fleets around the world – this includes airport baggage tractor tuggers, belt loaders, and deck loaders. Fuel cell-powered electric GSE equipment is today’s zero-emission answer to a number of issues with traditional diesel power.
Benefits of Fuel Cell-Powered GSE Equipment
- Zero-emission operation improves sustainability
- Energy efficiency: 45% with fuel cells versus 20% for diesel
- Decreased maintenance costs due to fewer moving parts with fuel cell power
Compared to battery-powered electric vehicles, fuel cells offer longer ranges and faster refueling, with a hydrogen storage system that easily scales without taking up the space charging stations require.
