New fuel cell systems for South Korea

Samsung Everland has purchased 12 UTC Power 400 kW fuel cell systems for installation at a GS Power plant in the town of Anyang, just outside Seoul in South Korea.

GS Power will use the 4.8 MWe output from the fuel cells to provide power for about 5% of Anyang's population, with 40 GWh total annual power output expected.

The plant will be operational in September 2009 and will be one of the largest fuel cell installations in the world.

'With the prolonged effects of high and unstable oil prices on businesses and heightened environmental concerns and regulations worldwide, I am certain more businesses will show interest in renewable energy and other clean energy initiatives such as fuel cells," said Robin Park, Samsung Everland president and chief executive officer.
