The deployment of the first hydrogen powered top loader in real operation
The last phase of Hyster’s development of the first hydrogen powered top loader has started with the deployment of this container handler in the port of Los Angeles. Key elements of the truck’s performance are validated at a customer site showing the potential of the new technology. Besides this, valuable lessons learned are collected during the deployment of this first of a kind container handler leading to further improvements in future generations. Data collection and analysis have played an important role, but also on-site support showed new topics to consider when introducing zero emissions container handlers.
