As part of its "Blue Strategy” Haulotte has announced its collaboration with Bouygues Energies & Services, which will focus on using hydrogen energy to fuel lifting equipment.
Bouygues Energies & Services will test a Haulotte machine equipped with a fuel cell system under real conditions on several of its construction sites for one year. Bouygues will also be in charge of studying the hydrogen supply ecosystem for construction sites.
This partnership between the two groups aims to confirm the technical feasibility of using hydrogen technology in the construction sector to provide a low-carbon, zero-emission solution in response to climate, environmental and public health issues.
Haulotte is exploring solutions for the complete decarbonization of its future people-lifting equipment. Haulotte and Bouygues Energies & Services project teams are happy with this collaboration, which heralds an essential partnership between the players in the value chain, manufacturers, energy suppliers, customers and users, to deploy hydrogen as a power source for aerial equipment.
