The IMHX 2022 Sustainability Zone will provide visitors with the opportunity to learn about the technological developments, social issues and operational trends shaping today’s sustainable supply chains. Interactive augmented reality features will complement the physical displays to provide information on a host of adoptable sustainable initiatives.
Adam Keenan, Director of Business Development at Intelligent Energy, commented: “Our participation in IMHX 2022 reflects Intelligent Energy’s commitment to having a positive impact on our customers’ business processes, society at large and the environment. using state-of-the-art high-efficiency fuel cell technology. We’re really excited to introduce the new “H2 E-Pack” – a plug-and-play battery replacement that uses our latest IE-LIFT™ MHE fuel cell module at its heart.
British company Intelligent Energy has over 30 years of experience in developing zero-emission fuel cells that generate clean, quiet, efficient and emission-free power for a wide range of applications, including material handling equipment.
“Unlike batteries, which create electricity from the energy they have stored inside, fuel cells generate electricity from fuel supplied via an external tank. ‘a battery will take a long time to recharge, a fuel cell will continue to produce electricity as long as the fuel is available,’ explains Adam Keenan.
He continues: “With the H2 E-Pack, when the hydrogen in the built-in tank is low, you simply fill it up in a unit similar to a forecourt gas pump. Filling a hydrogen tank usually only takes a few minutes, which is much faster than the few hours it takes to recharge a traditional lead-acid battery. This makes it an excellent power source for large fleets of forklifts operating in busy distribution and manufacturing centers, providing significant OEE improvements.
In addition to sponsoring the Sustainability Zone, Intelligent Energy and its partners will also have a visitor engagement space, booth 5C85, within the expo where experts will be on hand to discuss the practicalities of hydrogen for forklifts and other intralogistics equipment. In addition, the company is hosting a hydrogen technology panel at the Logistics Conference – an expert-led seminar program running throughout IMHX 2022, taking place at the NEC in Birmingham. September 6-8.
IMHX 2022 Event Director Rob Fisher said, “We are delighted that Intelligent Energy has chosen IMHX to showcase its capabilities and educate our visitors on the myriad benefits that hydrogen fuel cells have to offer. . With sustainability being a priority for many companies, along with the push towards net zero carbon and an increased focus on the hydrogen economy, I’m sure visitor interest will be high.
