The KION Group is expanding its hydrogen propulsion range, the global provider of lift trucks and warehouse automation solutions announced today. The global intralogistics group said it will soon develop and produce its own fuel cell systems for its industrial trucks.
KION Group added that it is going to invest more than €11 million in this technology. The KION Group plans to launch its own 24 V fuel cell system for warehouse equipment to the market in spring 2023. Completion of the fuel cell portfolio is expected to follow in the coming years. This group says this means that the KION brands will soon be able to offer their customers everything they need from a single source: the forklift, the fuel cells, and the associated service.
