The intense and long duty cycles of material handling vehicles mean that operational uptime and fuel consumption are key contributors to an operator’s total cost of ownership. Wiggins selected Loop Energy as its technology provider after impressing across key s, including fuel efficiency, operating lifetime and integration and after-sales support.Wiggins provides material handling vehicles to port, marina and warehouse operators across the US and is committed to offering its customers safe, reliable, zero-emissions industrial forklifts. Its decision to manufacture hydrogen-electric forklifts is due to the operating benefits fuel cell engines offer, including fast refuelling times and the ability to meet a range of duty cycles. The California-based company was one of the first manufacturers to provide battery-electric forklifts. With growing customer demand, it aims to be an early mover in the hydrogen-electric material handling vehicle segment.
