FuelCell Energy, Inc. celebrated the one-year operating anniversary of its 20-megawatt Korean Southern Power Company (KOSPO) fuel cell park in Incheon, South Korea on 30th June (2019).

The fuel cell park, owned by KOSPO, features eight SureSource3000™ power plants, manufactured and maintained by FuelCell Energy.

“We are very pleased with the performance of the 20-megawatt fuel cell park,” said Jennifer Arasimowicz, Interim President and Chief Commercial Officer at FuelCell Energy.

“In addition to consistently exceeding power and heat output requirements since its commercial operation date, the installation is an ideal application for demonstrating the capabilities for our carbonate fuel cell technology to solve the utility scale clean power needs of the Korean market.” 

Construction of the fuel cell part began in late 2017 and the facility became fully operational in 2018.

“FuelCell Energy’s fuel cell power plants have been successfully operating and we are very pleased with the result,” said the Future Growth Business Team of Shin-Incheon Combined Cycle Power Plant Division.

“We appreciate all the effort of FuelCell Energy staff who have always maintained the integrity and ownership of this operation and we hope to see the continuing success of the phase1 of KOSPO Shin-Incheon fuel cell for the remaining 19 years.”

“We are pleased with the success of this important project for KOSPO and FuelCell Energy. Fuel cell projects, such as this 20-megawatt solution, are a perfect application of our expertise, while delivering a unique solution for South Korea’s increasing use of clean energy sources,” said Kee Wook Lee, President and CEO of Hanyang Industrial Development Co., Ltd.
