Plug Power Selects Maxwell Ultracaps for GenDrive Fuel Cell-Based Power Packs for Lift Trucks
3 September 2008
Plug Power Inc., a developer of hydrogen fuel cell-based power systems for electric lift trucks, has selected Maxwell Technologies’ BOOSTCAP ultracapacitors to enhance performance and energy management in its line of GenDrive power units.
Plug Power has placed a purchase order for MC2600 2,600-farad ultracapacitor cells to be delivered during the third and fourth quarters.
Ultracapacitors’ burst power capabilities for lifting, as well as regenerative braking for energy recuperation and longer operating life make them an ideal complement to hydrogen fuel cells in this application.—Andy Marsh, Plug Power’s president and CEO
