Cellex Completes Field Trials of Fuel Cell Vehicles

Cellex Power Products, Inc. recently announced the successful completion of its consortium-led demonstration field trials at Canadian retailer London Drugs as part of a $2-million Canadian (approximately $1.6-million U.S.) contribution from Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC).

According to Cellex, the project included the development and demonstration of the company’s initial zero-emission, 24-volt, fuel cell power solution designed to replace industrial lead acid batteries and internal combustion engines used to power forklift trucks.

“During the demonstrations Cellex’s products ran longer than batteries; refueled much quicker than swapping a battery; and the trucks powered by our products were able to run at a consistent maximum power,” said Cellex president and CEO Chris Reid. “Our fuel cell products will eventually replace the battery room and the handling of lead and acid in the workplace.”
