Aichi, Japan — Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation (hereinafter referred to as Toshiba ESS) today announced that the newly installed Toshiba ESS “H2PLAZA,” a facility that produces and supplies hydrogen with renewable energy for fuel-cell forklifts, is now supplying hydrogen at Toyota Industries Corporation’s Takahama plant in Aichi Prefecture.
The facility supplies hydrogen made from solar power panels to 13 fuel-cell forklifts used at the plant which control the amounts of hydrogen produced and compressed by Toshiba ESS’s hydrogen energy management system, which allows more efficient use of energy to monitor the amounts of hydrogen produced and the storage amounts for each fuel-cell forklift in real time.
Toshiba ESS has a wide range of hydrogen-related solutions such as “H2One™,” a hydrogen-based autonomous energy supply system with using renewable energy to fuel cell vehicles and fuel-cell forklifts.
