Final workshop of the first EU-funded demonstration project on
hydrogen powered fuel cell forklifts
June 23, 2014, 11:00 – 15:00 hrs
Colruyt Group, Zinkstraat, 1500 Halle, Belgium
We cordially invite you to the final workshop of the HyLIFT-DEMO project, one of the first EU-funded projects that developed and deployed European manufactured forklift trucks powered by European manufactured fuel cell systems. The workshop will highlight the project results, confront the challenges and will give insight in the growing market for fuel cell powered material handling vehicles in Europe and the rest of the world. Practical feedback from fuel cell forklift manufacturers and operators will provide a detailed perspective on requirements, authorisation and daily operations.
The Colruyt Group, who kindly offered to host the event, operates four fuel cell forklift trucks, two of them financially supported by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU). The workshop will include a demonstration of the different vehicles and its hydrogen refuelling infrastructure.
