Paceco introduces hydrogen full cell power pack

Mitsui E&S Machinery Co., Ltd. (MES-M), part of PACECO Group, has announced the completion and power generation verification of a hydrogen fuel cell power pack (FCPP) for a Rubber-Tyred Gantry crane (Transtainer).

MES-M is performing this development project under a grant from Japan’s New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organisation (NEDO).

Fuel Cell integration and performance tests were carried out with Mitsui E&S Power Systems, Inc.

The FCPP will be installed on a Transtainer crane in MES-M Oita Works for further testing and optimisation, according to the company’s most recent statement.

This is the first application of the integration with Toyota Motor Corporation´s fuel cell and large high-pressure hydrogen fuel tanks in a non-automotive application worldwide.

Development of the Zero-Emission (H2-ZE Transtainer crane) will be carried out in 2023. Adaptation of FCPP to other applications is also under consideration, said the company.

“The FCPP is a major milestone to achieve decarbonisation.”

MES-M added that it is further developing ammonia fuel marine engines and fuel supply equipment and planning a hydrogen supply facility with a target completion date of June 2023.
