USA | Messer installed a new liquid hydrogen pump system for an automaker in South Carolina. The new system keeps forklift trucks and other fuel cell electric vehicles supplied with the eco-friendly fuel. To further reduce the CO₂ footprint of the plant, Messer is working together with the customer on several other projects that likewise take advantage of the new unit. These include the conversion of the company’s motor vehicle fleet to fuel cell electric operation and the use of hydrogen as an eco-friendly fuel in burners as well as boilers. In addition, suppliers are encouraged to use H₂-powered semi-tractor trailer rigs whenever possible for their trips to the site – at the rate of about a thousand per day.
