from the "Fly on the wall "Plug Power announces order from Central Grocers for GenDrive units
Plug Power announced that Central Grocers has placed an order for 182 next-generation GenDrive fuel cell units to operate its electric lift truck fleet in Joliet, IL. In addition, Central Grocers has signed a 5-year GenCare service contract with Plug Power for the GenDrive fleet. The new units will be replacing the original fleet after operating for more than two million hours. The new units are expected to be operational at Central Grocers by the third quarter of 2014."
I'm wondering that too. Best I can tell is that past orders indicate about $35k per unit. So about $6.4M. Also not clear if this is all at once or spread out over time (year or two). Surprised at the low lifespan of the units needing replacement in just 5 years.
