Columbia, SC – (September 22, 2013) – The Ohio Fuel Cell Coalition has become an official Platinum Sponsor of the 2013 Fuel Cell Seminar & Energy Exposition to be held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio, USA, October 21st-24th.


The Ohio Fuel Cell Coalition (OFCC) is a united group of industry, academic, and government leaders working collectively to strengthen Ohio's fuel cell industry and to accelerate the transformation of the region to global leadership in fuel cell technology. The OFCC is based in Elyria, Ohio at Lorain County Community College.

"The Ohio Fuel Cell Coalition, in partnership with The Ohio State University, is honored to be a platinum sponsor at the 2013 Fuel Cell Seminar & Energy Exposition," said Pat Valente, Executive Director of the OFCC. "This year's event will allow the OFCC to showcase to the attendees Ohio's many fuel cell assets including its fuel cell companies, its research institutes and its two year colleges."
The President of the Board of Directors to the FCS&EE, Dr. Mark Williams, relayed, "The Ohio region is quite fortunate to have the Ohio Fuel Cell Coalition. Their sponsorship is important in helping the FCS&EE achieve a successful communication and outreach effort this year. We welcome everyone to join us in Ohio this year to one of the world's fuel cell centers."

The annual Fuel Cell Seminar & Energy Exposition (FCS&EE) is the premier international gathering of the Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Energy industries and their customers and stakeholders. Over a four day span, the conference hosts 1,000+ attendees and features more than 200 presentations from around the world.
The 2013 FCS&EE theme, "Fuel Cells and Natural Gas: Securing America's Energy Future," expands on the mission to advance global energy, environmental, and economic benefits offered by fuel cells, hydrogen, and natural gas technologies.

Featured activities will include world class Plenary Sessions and Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Presentation Tracks, Educational Short Courses, an Ohio "Industry and Research Facilities Tour" and Supply Chain Exchange event, a public Ride & Drive event featuring Toyota and Honda, and two networking receptions!

Online registration is open through October 18, 2013. Discounted rates are available until September 30, 2013.

Parker KleenVent provides closed-loop solution for wind turbine cooling systems

Parker KleenVent provides closed-loop solution for wind turbine cooling systems

Many 1.5 MW wind turbines use traditional open-loop water/glycol cooling systems. Regular water evaporation in the reservoir elevates the mixture's viscosity, prohibiting cooling of the IGBT and associated critical controls, causing the wind turbine to overheat unless serviced, which in turn means turbine downtime and high maintenance costs. Parker's KleenVent Coolant Evaporation Inhibitor (KV-CEI) is a simple add-on to the legacy cooling system, that eliminates water evaporation in the coolant solution and stops the ingress of airborne contaminants, by enclosing the cooling loop. The KVCEI also removes the need for continuous coolant monitoring during the warm season. Traditional maintenance calls to replenish or rebalance the fluids, take the wind turbine and transformer offline, resulting in significant downtime and revenue loss. Parker's cooling system solution optimizes wind turbine uptime and revenue, reduces maintenance costs and increases overall efficiencies.
