United Rentals adds hydrogen generators to fleet

United Rentals expects to deploy the generators during the fourth quarter of 2022 and in 2023.

United Rentals, Inc. will add several hydrogen power generators to its North American rental fleet in the coming months.

With the generators, United Rentals customers will have a zero-emissions power solution to charge electric vehicles, tools, and other equipment, advancing worksite electrification strategies.

The EODev GEH2 fuel cell electro-hydrogen generators bring companies the energy they need without emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrocarbons (HC), nitrogen oxides (NOx) or other particulate matter (PM).

With a compact footprint of about 4 feet by 11 feet, the generators deliver instant power up to 110 kVA (88 kW). They are equipped with the latest hydrogen fuel cells and provide exceptional durability and reliability. In addition to the sustainability benefits, they also run much quieter than traditional generators.

United Rentals has acquired the generators from Generac, a distribution partner for EODev. The generators join emissions-free aerial lifts, trucks, vans, compact excavators, e-dumpsters, battery systems and more already in the United Rentals portfolio of environmentally friendly rental equipment.

Among the applications for GEH2 generators are construction worksites; confined environments such as tunnels, mines and enclosed spaces; entertainment venues including concerts; sports events; and many other markets where emission-free power is desired.

Stéphane Jardin, CCO of EODev, said, “United Rentals is an excellent partner for our emissions-free generators because our companies share a vision to provide innovative solutions that help customers reduce their carbon footprint and environmental impact.”

David Scott, SVP of Specialty Operations, United Rentals, said,  “By providing a zero-emissions power solution, United Rentals continues to demonstrate leadership in helping worksites expand electrification in construction and industrial rental sectors.”
