Fuel-Cell Technology For Work Trucks

Grocery merchants have a new way to 'keep cool' when it comes to delivering ice cream, frozen foods, and fresh produce. Fuel-cell technology provides cool temperatures for refrigerated trucks that are normally cooled by small, diesel engines according to WorkTruckOnline.

Fuel cells are a clean technology that make energy silently. They also reduce emissions because the only byproducts are heat and water. The user benefits from fuel savings of about 10 gallons per day, per vehicle. They also benefit from reduced pollutant emissions and quieter operations.

The economy will also benefit from the increased use of fuel-cell technology. More jobs will be created in the energy sector and the cost of fuel cells will go down. The increase of fuel-cell manufacturing will create a stronger domestic supplier base.

Merchants can further their fuel savings and emission reductions by using lightweight service bodies. The Durashell by Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies is made of a lightweight, yet rugged fiberglass composite. The Durashell reduces the overall weight of a work truck, and subsequently reduces fuel cost and emissions. Fiberglass utility bodies also provide excellent insulation for food industries. The Durashell plus fuel-cell technology create a perfect combination to keep food cool and fresh throughout the entire delivery process.
