Hyster’s hydrogen fuel cell-powered top-pick container handler was named a finalist in the sustainability category in Fast Company’s 2023 Innovation by Design Awards.

The top-pick container handler, which is expected to provide emissions savings of 127 T of carbon dioxide and almost half a ton of criteria pollution per year, is the first of its kind and is currently being piloted at the Fenix Marine Services terminal at the Port of Los Angeles. 

The truck is powered by two Nuvera 45 kw hydrogen fuel cells working in tandem with an on-board lithium-ion battery, with the fuel cells able to power the equipment directly or charge the battery. 

This allows operators to refuel the truck in about 15 minutes and then operate for 8 to 10 consecutive hours all while producing no harmful emissions, only heat and water.  

Meanwhile, Resonant Link’s wireless forklift charging system got an honourable mention in the sustainability category of the Fast Company’s design awards.
