Trial fuel cell power system runs on 'waste' hydrogen

The Forza hydrogen power system is a baseload system that converts excess hydrogen disbursed from chemical processing plants into DC electricity, says the company. The electricity can then be used in the same facility, in a Nuvera-patented closed-loop fashion, to lower energy costs. The modular system has multi-megawatt capabilities and produces pollution-free electricity in parallel to the existing electric DC circuit.

Fujitsu America, Inc. has selected UTC Power to provide a 'PureCell' Model 200 fuel cell to power and heat a portion of its Silicon Valley Campus located in Sunnyvale, California. UTC Power also will service the unit for 15 years. The company therefore becomes the first user of fuel cell technology in Silicon Valley.
