MES-M completes hydrogen fuel cell power pack for Transtainer


A hydrogen fuel cell power pack (FCPP), created as a crucial power system for the Rubber-Tired-Gantry crane, has been successfully completed and its power generation verified, according to a press release from Mitsui E&S Machinery.

This development project is being carried out by MES-M thanks to funding from the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO). Tests on fuel cell performance and integration were done in conjunction with MES-M subsidiary Mitsui E&S Power Systems, Inc. In MES-M Oita Works, the FCPP will be mounted on a Transtainer crane for additional testing and optimization.

This is the first time in the history of the world that a big high-pressure hydrogen fuel tank and a fuel cell from Toyota Motor Corporation have been integrated. The H2-ZE Transtainer crane, which has zero emissions, is scheduled to be developed by 2023. Additionally, it is being thought about adapting FCPP for different applications.
