Plug Power Inc. and Uline have announced their expanded partnership to deploy Plug’s hydrogen infrastructure and fuel cell solutions at Uline’s new campus in Kenosha, Wisconsin, US.

This expanded partnership includes the integration of on-site hydrogen infrastructure with the installation of a 18 000 gal. hydrogen storage tank and 17 hydrogen dispensers to service four distribution centres within the campus. The partnership also includes the addition of 250 fuel cell forklifts that will operate on hydrogen generated on-site through Plug’s state-of-the-art infrastructure.

“When we first partnered with Plug, fuel cells were still in their infancy,” said Wade Goff, Director of Redistribution. “They’ve made our associates more productive because refuelling is faster and easier than changing a battery."

Plug’s hydrogen infrastructure to support the entire campus is set to be commissioned and fully operational within the next ten months, with the first new distribution centre in the campus slated to be completed this year. Uline plans to construct three more buildings over the next several years as part of the strategic campus build out.

“The ongoing expansion of our eight-year partnership with Uline stands as a testament to the remarkable impact our hydrogen and fuel cell technology has on material handling operations,” said Plug Power CEO, Andy Marsh. “Given Uline’s business strategy of same day turn-around, productivity and predictability are important and are key benefits that Plug’s fuel cell solutions deliver to Uline.”
