Plug Power Announces New Fuel Cell Customer

BCSE member Plug Power today announced that Procter & Gamble has selected its GenDrive fuel cell products to power lift trucks at three Proctor & Gamble manufacturing facilities located in North Carolina, California and Louisiana.  The more than 200 GenDrive fuel cell units to be supplied to Proctor & Gamble’s electric lift truck fleet will help to improve process efficiencies and drive down operating costs.  
 
GenDrive hydrogen fuel cells minimize down time for a truck and its operator by re-fueling in two to three minutes.  In addition, only water and heat are generated as byproducts of the hydrogen powered electricity creation.  

Proctor & Gamble estimates the change to GenDrive fuel cells will reduce related greenhouse gas emissions by up to 60 percent.
