Nilfisk-Advance Group (Booth 2247) unveiled the fuel cell-powered CS7000 industrial floor cleaning machine in a press conference Tuesday morning.

“This is the first fuel cell-powered combination sweeper-scrubber,” said Jeff Barna, the company’s U.S. president and general manager. “It was created in response to requests from our industrial customers who had already invested in fuel cell technology. They asked for sustainable cleaning solutions that allowed them to further leverage their fuel cell investment and infrastructure.”

Operating solely on hydrogen with a Plug Power fuel cell, the cleaning machine provides enhanced efficiency, productivity, reliability, simplified maintenance and 100% indoor emission-free operation, said Barna. Its dedicated sweeping and scrubbing functions enable one-pass cleaning.
