  • 13-Feb-2009 04:01 EST

East Penn Manufacturing and Nuvera Fuel Cells have teamed to provide ReadyPower units to the Susquehanna Defense Distribution Supply Depot (DDSP) in New Cumberland, PA. The fuel-cell/battery hybrid units have been installed into 20 Yale forklifts as part of a two-year-demonstration project operated by the Defense Logistics Agency. The ReadyPower units will be run at the DDSP in regular operation consisting of two shifts a day, five days a week, and will be compared to the performance that would have been attained using standard motive batteries. ReadyPower is a hybrid pack consisting of a fuel-cell power module, AGM batteries, and a compressed hydrogen fuel-storage system. ReadyPower is completely interchangeable with standard lead-acid forklift batteries.
