Hydrogen powered forklifts ensure longer shifts than Li-Ion technology and refueling also takes less time!
Hydrogen powered cars offer a way of green mobility with longer ranges than battery-electric vehicles and can be safely refueled by civilians.
Hydrogen technology can also be applied in the maritime sector, since the technology is easily scalable and can replace the highly polluting diesel engines.

H2-bv wins Smart Smarter SmartEAST prize!
During a sustainability event at Twente Airport the winners of the Pioneering sustainability prize 'Smart Smarter SmartEAST'
were announced. Pioneering was looking for smart ideas and solutions to seven challenging societal problems. All problems has a link to housing or infrastructure. Together with the municipality of Dalfsen, H2-bv had proposed a hydrogen powered water distribution system for the agricultural sector. Now, farmers need the engines of tractors to supply the necessary power for the pumps. Next to the fact that a tractor runs on the not so clean diesel fuel it is also required to be stationary throughout the day when the water distribution has to take place. With the hydrogen powered pumping system, the farmer can again freely use the tractor which would be otherwise occupied for other chores. This idea also has a connection to the future where farmers might also generate their own hydrogen from solar panels on their barns. H2-bv was awarded a total prize of 35.000 EURO to look into this application further. Talks have already started with partner companies to start the production of such hydrogen devices.
