SHEL
Project Information
Framework Programme: 
FP7
Call for proposals: 
2009
Application area: 
Early markets

The SHEL project, Sustainable Hydrogen Evaluation in Logistics, aims to demonstrate the market readiness of Fuel Cell Hydrogen powered (FCH) materials handling vehicles, hydrogen refuelling infrastructure, demonstrate end user acceptance, and accelerate early market take-up of Fuel Cell Hydrogen Fork Lift Trucks (FCH FLTs) in Europe.

The project will demonstrate 10 units of 1.5-2.5 ton FCH FLTs and associated hydrogen refuelling infrastructure across 3 sites in Europe: UK, Spain and Turkey. The project examines the production of the forklift and benchmarking FCH and FLT system components. A key objective is also to develop unified rapid product certification and infrastructure build approval procedures across the EU.

Looking to the future, the project includes designing a demonstration continuation plan to identify a further 10 demonstration sites with up to 200 FC FLTs.
