Success for Fronius – Two Energy Globes for HyLOG project!
The "Energy Globe Award" for Austria was presented at a gala on November 30, 2007. Winners were chosen from the following categories: Water, Fire, Earth, Air and Youth. The overall winner in Austria was determined by polling the audience.
The competition was made up of winning projects representing the various Federal States in Austria.
A jury gave the HyLOG project from Fronius (Hydrogen powered Logistic System) the award for the Air category.
In addition, a majority of guests in the hall (55.6 %) also named the Fronius project as the overall winner in Austria.
Ambitious HyLOG project at the Fronius facility in Sattledt (Upper Austria)
The goal of the HyLOG project is to implement an in-house transport logistics system at an industrial level that is completely emissions-free:
At the Fronius Sattledt location (Upper Austria), in-house logistics vehicles are being retrofitted with the Fronius Energy Cell so that they can operate using a clean hydrogen fuel cell. The hydrogen is produced on site using an electrolysis process run by emissions-free solar energy.
The impressive results of this plan is an industrial-size transport solution without emissions.
The Energy Globe Award – now established at the international level
The Energy Globe Award from Austria was started in 2003 and since then it has also been gaining interest at the international level.
The HyLOG project, as overall Austrian winner, is now a co-candidate for this international prize, the "World Award for Sustainability".
On May 26, 2008, the international jury in Brussels will evaluate the projects of all overall winners and make their decision as to who will win the international award.
