Chief executive Michel Denis said: “We are studying all the hydrogen related technologies based on what users need. This prototype is only the first step. A second rotating telehandler prototype will be developed in the coming months. There are many benefits of green hydrogen with production possible using wind power that has no greenhouse gas emissions at all. This fits in perfectly with our low-carbon trajectory."
Around 50 engineers and technicians have now been dedicated to the programme which was originally launched in 2021. Vice president of R&D Julien Waechter said: “The green hydrogen sector is gradually becoming more established with the entry into this market of a number of players. All of the aid mechanisms proposed by the different governments will encourage the transition to hydrogen and will speed up the development of the distribution network and ultimately the reduction in the usage costs of our machines using this energy."
