FuelCell Energy Unit Successfully Tested With Absorption Chiller.

FuelCell Energy, Inc. recently announced that testing of its Direct FuelCell power plant operating in conjunction with an absorption chiller has been successfully completed at the U.S. government's Fuel Cell Test and Evaluation Center.

According to FuelCell Energy, one of the company's 250-kilowatt DFC300A units was tested with a Broad 20-ton absorption chiller. The chiller generated a maximum of 19.5 tons of cooling, higher than its rated capacity of 17.9 tons.

"Gaining the option of using the high value waste heat from our ultra-clean DFC power plants for absorption chilling air conditioning enhances their value proposition," said FuelCell Energy president and chief operating officer R. Daniel Brdar. "Using the heat to chill water for air conditioning can provide better economics for cogeneration, especially in markets with high electricity costs and warmer climates."
