New York Power Authority Buys Eight 200-Kilowatt Fuel Cells

UTC Fuel Cells announced last month the sale of eight fuel cell systems to the New York Power Authority (NYPA), which will use them at four wastewater treatment facilities in New York City. NYPA will use waste gas (primarily methane) from the water treatment process to power the fuel cells. Each of the units generates 200 kilowatts of electricity. See the UTC Fuel Cells press release.

Other recent fuel cell developments include the installation of a Nuvera Fuel Cell at a Verizon telecommunications site in Massachusetts and the shipment of a 5-kilowatt fuel cell — produced by DCH Technologies, Inc. — to the Houston Advanced Research Center (HARC).
