Jofemar presents the world’s first hydrogen powered vending machine in St. Louis
Environmental friendliness was a big selling point at the recently held NAMA National Vending Expo, with equipment options ranging from lower-energy lighting to the world first autonomously powered vending machine that runs on hydrogen, by the Spanish company Jofemar.
The Expo was the perfect setting for the launch of the Vision Multiseller H2. Jofemar’s Vision H2 power is provided by a fuel cell that is fed with hydrogen from a portable Ovonic Solid Hydrogen Storage canister. The fuel cell has a back-up battery for when the portable hydrogen canister needs to be recharged.
“The system created by our engineers allows the “Vision H2” to be able to work with absolute autonomy and without connection to the electric source” explains Felix Guindulain, Jofemar’s General Manager. This gives the machines a large range of applications, as they may be located anywhere.
