Ballard Power Systems (Vancouver, Canada) announced that it will supply Richmond, B.C.-based General Hydrogen (Canada) Corp. with more than 100 Mark9 SSL® fuel cells. The fuel cells will range in power from 4.8 kilowatts to 21.1 kilowatts, and will be integrated into General Hydrogen’s power units for early commercial sales in the lift-truck market.
“We are now into commercial sales and this agreement with Ballard provides a solid foundation going forward, as we have secured a source of product that will allow us to be extremely competitive in the Class 1 forklift truck market,” said Frank Trotter, General Hydrogen’s president and CEO. “The lift truck market for battery replacement technology is here and now and represents a major market opportunity for General Hydrogen. The market is driven not only by the economic need to be as efficient as possible, but also the requirement to meet ever-increasing environmental standards in the workplace for the health and safety of workers.”
