Fusion Fuel & TMHES announce to promote the development of the green hydrogen fuel cell

Fusion Fuel and Toyota Material Handling España, S.A. (‘TMHES’) are pleased to announce that they have signed a collaboration agreement to promote the development of the green hydrogen fuel cell forklift market in Spain.

The collaboration seeks to further strengthen TMHES’s leadership position in the domestic zero-emissions forklift truck segment by offering end-to-end solutions of fuel cell forklifts combined with green hydrogen production and hydrogen refueling 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 the security of supply at competitive prices – with TMHES’s market-leading operational rental and leasing solutions for their range of forklift products.

Both companies view the logistics and material handling sector as uniquely well suited to benefit from the advantages of hydrogen energy and consider fuel cell forklift solutions as a critical decarbonization 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.

Commenting on the agreement, Grant Greatrex, “We are excited to announce this collaboration with a fellow pioneering company in the green hydrogen energy transition and see great potential for fully financed integrated solutions for our joint clients.”

Joan Catalan has spoken about the partnership with Fusion Fuel Spain, “we are pleased to collaborate with Fusion Fuel Spain in the development of Hydrogen as a green energy for mobility in our country. Sustainability is one of our key objectives, working to Zero emissions target, and we believe that green Hydrogen applied to forklift market will be a key element in this journey.

He added, 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 underway.”
