Siemens Westinghouse Power of Orlando, Florida and Fuel Cell Technologies of Ottawa have signed an agreement to develop the next generation of five-kilowatt solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) power systems.
The two companies have been working together for the past 30 months to develop solid oxide fuel cell power
generators for the distributed power market. Their goal is to produce generating units that are clean, quiet, reliable and highly efficient to give on-site electricity and heat for homes, farms and commercial locations. Fuel Cell Technologies is in the process of commissioning the first four demonstration units at customer sites in Germany, Japan, Michigan and Alaska.
With the new agreement, the two companies will work to develop an integrated fuel cell stack that will realize the benefits of using standard length bundles.
