Clean Intralogistics Net (CIN)
Fuel cell systems and hydrogen infrastructure for green logistics – Clean Intralogistics Net is an alliance of 14 companies that has set itself the goal of cutting the emissions of material handling equipment and related infrastructure in industry and at airports, as well as reducing the associated costs in the long term. The members include:
• AIR LIQUIDE Advanced Technologies GmbH
• BMW Bayerische Motoren Werke AG
• Bosch Engineering GmbH
• Daimler AG
• ElringKlinger AG
• Heraeus Fuel Cells GmbH
• Jungheinrich AG
• Linde Material Handling GmbH
• Linde AG – Gases Division
• Plug Power Inc. Europe
• Propan Rheingas GmbH & Co. KG
• SCHAEFFLER AG
• STILL GmbH
• Toyota Material Handling Deutschland GmbH
Synergy – With the creation of the network, the CIN partners establish the necessary platform for activating the market for fuel cell-run industrial trucks, airport ground support equipment and vehicles along with its hydrogen infrastructure.
Competition – Companies from the USA, Japan, Norway, Sweden and China are promoting the development of green logistics at full speed. The users, suppliers and manufacturers in the Clean Intralogistics Net initiative view the alliance as an opportunity to position competitive “Made in Germany” fuel cell systems throughout the world.
CIN is supported by the German Mechanical Engineering Industry Association VDMA Materials Handling and Intralogistics and the NOW “Hydrogen, fuel cells and electric mobility at airports” working group. NOW GmbH accompanies the innovation cluster, EE Energy Engineers GmbH as the administrator of the CIN clusters. The network is supported as an innovation cluster with BMVI (Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure) funds from the NIP II (National Innovation Programme Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology).
