FuelCell Energy has provided an update on the performance achievements of its 20-megawatt Korean Southern Power Company (KOSPO) fuel cell park in Incheon, South Korea.
Owned by KOSPO, the fuel cell park consists of eight SureSource 3000™ power plant platforms manufactured by FuelCell Energy that produce electricity and thermal energy to support a district heating system.
FuelCell Energy operates and maintains the plant under a long-term service agreement and continues to exceed all contracted output requirements, achieving average availability of 99% and average capacity factor of 97%.
“We continue to be very pleased with the performance of the 20-megawatt fuel cell park,” said Jason Few, President and CEO of FuelCell Energy.
“We continue to consistently exceed the power and heat output requirements of the contract since the commercial operation date, having produced electrical output in excess of our contractual requirements by approximately 16%, equal to about two months of added output.”
“This platform, and its combined heat and power application, illuminates one of the differentiating capabilities of our carbonate fuel cell technology, solving for utility scale clean power and district heating and cooling needs of the South Korean market.”
“This FuelCell Energy developed project demonstrates the reliability and value our platforms deliver around the world.”
