Deere & Co. said it is working with Hydrogenics Corp. (Alternatives).

Deere & Co. said it is working with Hydrogenics Corp., a Canadian fuel cell manufacturer, to develop a technology demonstrator fuel cell-powered commercial work vehicle (CWV). The demonstrator will be a modified John Deere ProGator Utility Vehicle. "This vehicle will serve as a technology guide as John Deere moves forward with electrification of its products," said Bruce Wood, director of the company's ePower Technologies group, which plans to test the fuel cell-powered CWV at demonstration sites across the U.S. starting in the spring of 2003. Wood said Deere is undertaking several electrification initiatives including the use of advanced battery technologies, diesel- and gasoline-hybrid electric technologies and hydrogen fuel cell technologies to add performance and efficiency capabilities to existing products.
