The new vehicle is a breakthrough not only for the mobility market but also for the material handling sector with further breakthroughs supporting decarbonisation.
The AGV is said to be capable of autonomously driving in infra-structureless and mixed traffic environment helping to automate several aspects of material handling and port applications.
With this new vehicle, it enables a transition away from diesel fuelled applications and supports not only the integration of hydrogen into port operations but also create demand for the clean energy carrier.
Gaussin said that m any feasibility studies have shown that ports are ideal locations for hydrogen-powered transport trucks and container handling equipment as they are a natural place for hydrogen transportation, storage, and refuelling sites for various applications.
With hydrogen production costs dropping more than 50% since 2015, hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles are now a viable solution for port operators to meet both the operation efficiency and green targets.
Christophe Gaussin, CEO of Gaussin, said, “Once again, we are expanding our range of hydrogen-powered fuel cell products to support the zero-emission drive in the port sector. We believe our H2 AGV will contribute significantly to the operation efficiency expected in this demanding environment.”
