Stationary fuel cells 'should reach commercialization in Europe by 2010'

The report says that, since fuel cell-based CHP systems offer significant prospects for market expansion, current R&D efforts should result in technological breakthroughs that will result in enhanced product offerings at competitive price levels.

Finland's Wärtsilä has been awarded a contract to supply the equipment for and installation of a biomass-fuelled CHP plant by Halmstads Energi och Miljö AB (HEM), a municipal company active in the energy and environmental sectors. The city of Halmstad is located on Sweden's southwest coast.

The plant, named KVV-Turbingatan, will have a thermal output of 19.3 MW and an electrical output of 3.2 MW. The plant is due to begin supplying heat at the end of 2007 and electricity at the end of March 2008.
