The new website highlights the applications for highly efficient and
environmentally friendly fuel cell power generation, both for on-site
applications with large power users as well as electric grid support for
utilities. Each of the megawatt-class markets are explained, including
on-site power for universities, municipal, food and beverage, and industrial
applications as well as electric grid support with multi-megawatt fuel cell
parks for electric utilities and independent power producers. FuelCell
Energy Solutions also has a product oriented towards maritime applications.
The website includes an explanation of fuel cell technology and illustrates
the multiple attributes and value that stationary fuel cell power plants can
deliver. Visitors have the option of viewing the website in either German or
"Our German manufacturing facility recently completed and verified the power
output of our first fuel cell module," Stefan Peterhans, Vice President
Engineering and Operations, FuelCell Energy Solutions, GmbH.
"This fuel cell module is now ready for transport to Berlin, Germany for
installation at the new Federal Ministry of Education and Research
(BMBF) government complex currently under construction."
Stationary fuel cell power plants provide continuous on-site power and
electric grid support in a highly efficient electrochemical process that is
virtually absent of pollutants. Ultra-clean, quiet, and requiring only
modest space, fuel cell power plants are easy to site in populated areas.
