The Raymond Corporation, a company specializing in the design, manufacture and distribution of lift trucks, has developed a hydrogen fuel cell powered stand-up counter balance lift truck. The company, which is headquartered in Greene, NY has a history of producing some of the most energy efficient lift trucks on the market. Due to rapid refuel times and sustained power hydrogen lift trucks have the potential to dramatically improve warehouse productivity while emitting only water.
The hydrogen lift truck will be showcased at The New York Battery and Energy Storage Technology Consortium, Inc. (NY-BEST) booth at Advanced Energy 2010 conference on November 8th and 9th in New York City (refer to October 22nd blog post). Steve Medwin, The Raymond Corporation's director of systems and advanced engineering, will discuss the energy storage options for lift trucks during the Energy Storage Options for Transportation Applications seminar.
The Raymond Corporation has been working towards the development of a hydrogen powered lift trucks since the opening of their "living lab" at company headquarters in 2007.
