Fusion Fuel and Toyota Material Handling España (TMHE) have signed a collaboration agreement to promote the development of the green hydrogen fuel cell forklift market in Spain.

The collaboration seeks to offer end-to-end solutions of fuel cell forklifts combined with green hydrogen production and hydrogen refuelling infrastructure provided by Fusion Fuel Spain and its industrial partners. 

The companies will offer a fully financed solution that combines Hydrogen-as-a-Service – guaranteeing security of supply at competitive prices – with TMHES’s operational rental and leasing solutions for its range of forklift products.

Both companies view the logistics and materials handling sector as uniquely suited to benefit from the advantages of hydrogen energy and consider fuel cell forklift solutions as a critical decarbonisation vector, particularly in logistics operations requiring heavy loads and high operating hours. The companies aim to deploy their green hydrogen solutions to legacy forklift truck fleets, as well as to integrated hydrogen logistics projects that combine the full spectrum of fuel cell vehicles for supply chain, distribution and materials handing operations.

Joan Catalan, director general of Toyota Material Handling España, says: “Sustainability is one of our key objectives, working to a zero-emissions target, and we believe that green hydrogen applied to the forklifts market will be a key element in this journey. Hydrogen has been proven as a clear alternative to other sources of energy when talking about performance, quick refill and zero emissions in intensive applications. Toyota has been working on hydrogen for many years, starting with the fuel cell forklift prototype presented in 2005, so this cooperation agreement is a further step to reinforce the actions already under way.”

What's in a name? Well, if we can judge from this week's move by Doosan Bobcat to rename its Doosan materials handling lines as Bobcats, there clearly is some benefit in a historied name, especially one that sounds American.
So, while the machines will stay the same, their branding will
