American fuel cell solutions company FuelCell Energy has begun operations at its 2.8megawatt fuel cell project in Tulare, California’s waste-water treatment facility.
The power plant is fuelled by the city’s biogas, which is treated by the SureSource TreatmentTM system, a clean-up technology developed FuelCell Energy.
The company’s power generation solutions are created to address customer needs such as distributed hydrogen, fuel cell carbon capture and natural gas let-down station energy recovery.
“I am proud of our team for delivering the Tulare Biogas Project,” said Jason Few, FuelCell Energy’s President and CEO.
“Globally, our solution delivers renewable and affordable power at a scale that is meaningful to communities and the utilities that serve them.”
“In addition to the significant environmental benefits of our solution, we also support our partners by providing a negative carbon footprint that supports offset emissions from their other forms of power generation.”
FuelCell Energy’s SureSource 3000TM will supply clean renewable heat to the wastewater facility’s anaerobic digesters, providing carbon emissions reductions.
In the past the company has deployed over 20megawatts of fuel cell systems operating on renewable biogas at wastewater treatment facilities, agricultural facilities, and breweries in California and globally which has led to the Tulare project.
