FuelCell Energy Inc. has announced on behalf of FuelCell Energy Solutions GmbH, the sale of a fuel cell power plant to E.ON Connecting Energies GmbH (E.ON) as part of a collaborative joint business approach.
The highly efficient combined heat and power fuel cell power plant will be installed in Germany at a commercial location.
“This is a global replicable project model with utility ownership for easy-to-site distributed power generation,” said Chip Bottone, President and CEO of FuelCell Energy, Inc. and Managing Director, FuelCell Energy Solutions GmbH. “Customers value the multiple attributes of clean on-site power generation but most important is that our fuel cell solutions help our customers reduce their energy costs.”
The fuel cells will meet more than 80% of the power needs of the facility as well as supporting heating and hot water needs.

Adopting low-carbon and virtually emission-free on-site fuel cell power generation supports sustainability initiatives, and the quiet operating profile enables the power plants to be located in urban locations.
Installation of the power plant is expected to begin in early 2017 and will be serviced by FuelCell Energy Solutions (FCES) under a long-term service agreement.
FuelCell Energy has announced a contract with Alberta innovates for an engineering study on a fuel cell carbon capture application at a Husky Energy-owned heavy oil thermal facility near Lloydminster, Saskatchewan, Canada.
