Haulotte, Bouygues Energies & Services team up on hydrogen energy

As part of its ‘Blue Strategy’, Haulotte has formed a partnership with Bouygues Energies & Services for the use of 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. The company will also be in charge of studying the hydrogen supply ecosystem for the construction sites.

This partnership 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 currently exploring solutions for the complete decarbonisation of its future people-lifting equipment.

Bouygues Energies & Services, a subsidiary of Bouygues Construction, is a key player in the energy and digital transition of regions, industries and buildings. The company employs more than 21,000 people and generates sales of €3.9 billion in the countries where it operates: Germany, Canada, France, the UK, Italy and Switzerland, while also working for its customers in Africa, Asia and Oceania.
