Oorja Protonics, a developer of liquid methanol fuel cell technology, has added the OorjaPac Model 1 to its product line. With a high power output of 4.5kW, Model 1has an operating cost of $0.18/kW-hour, making it an economical solution for forklift operators and fleet managers.
OorjaPac operates on liquid methanol, which is produced from natural and landfill gases, and biowaste. The 11-gallon methanol fuel tank is sufficient to power two eight-hour shifts. The process of fueling the OorjaPac is as simple as refueling a car.
OorjaPac continuously trickle-charges the on-board battery in a material handling vehicle, regardless of whether it is operating or parked, which ensures the battery never reaches a state of deep discharge. Battery charge and power are maintained at high levels and the battery is not subject to heat damage caused during recharging. This significantly increases productivity by eliminating the labor and equipment costs associated with battery swapping.
