Ballard supplies Infintium with fuel cell stacks to power material handling equipment for Daimler

Infintium, Inc.—part of the Dare Group, a public company listed on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange—is providing Hydrogen Power Cell fuel cell systems to Daimler for use in powering material handling equipment at its Vance, Alabama manufacturing facility. Ballard fuel cell stacks are integrated into Infintium’s Hydrogen Power Cell systems.

The Daimler equipment being powered by Infintium Hydrogen Power Cell systems include Class 1 and 3 forklift trucks as well as Automated Guided Tuggers (AGTs). Ballard FCgen-1020ACS air-cooled fuel cell stacks and FCvelocity-9SSL liquid-cooled fuel cell stacks are integrated into Hydrogen Power Cell systems.

Our Hydrogen Power Cells, with Ballard fuel cell stacks, underwent thousands of operational testing hours. We now have the data to prove that our smart design exceeded Mercedes’ desires to achieve greater reliability and higher fuel efficiency than previous fuel cell designs.

—Thomas Lynch, CEO of Infintium
