Exclusive European distribution rights for materials handling fuel cells

ITM Power (AIM: ITM), the energy storage and clean fuel company, is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement ("the Agreement") with Infintium Fuel Cell Systems Inc. of Texas ("IFCS") to become its exclusive European distributor of fuel cell systems for materials handling equipment.

Following recent successful trials, the Agreement will facilitate the development of a European customer base in the rapidly expanding materials handling market where traditional battery and engine technology is being replaced by fuel cells powered by hydrogen. Under the Agreement, IFCS will gain CE marking for its systems that can be fitted to all classes of pallet and fork lift trucks as well as airport baggage handling and utility vehicles. ITM Power will contribute its experience of gaining CE conformity for hydrogen systems to accelerate commercial availability.

IFCS is currently working with several major US retailers and distributors to gain supply chain qualification. The Agreement will enable ITM Power to gain access to the IFCS portfolio of customers and introduce them to ITM Power's green hydrogen generation and refueling solutions.

ITM Power is now in a position to offer a full turnkey solution to the materials handling sector, including on-site hydrogen generation, refueling and fuel cell systems. The successful trials of the Company’s HFuel product platform, together with measured operational benefits of fuel cell powered materials handling vehicles, has enabled ITM Power to begin to engage with potential retail, distribution and logistics customers. The company can now offer a tailored, integrated solution – including modeling, onsite trials, supply of equipment and maintenance contracts. HFuel is capable of generating up to 400kg of hydrogen per day, on-site, from renewable power.

ITM Power CEO, Dr. Graham Cooley, said: "This agreement means that the company can cater for customers who just want hydrogen as well as those who want a full turnkey system. It complements our existing product portfolio and takes us into a fast growing market."

IFCS VP Operations, Ross Oliver, added: "IFCS will be able to deploy units in Europe using ITM Power's extensive commercial contacts. Infintium’s fuel cells are high quality power generation products and when coupled with the IFCS three year bumper-to-bumper warranty the equipment secures additional value for the customer. We are delighted to be associated with a company producing high quality refueling solutions and look forward to working with ITM Power in Europe and the USA.
