  • South Korea : Doosan Forges Ahead With Fuel Cell Business in Korea
    June 15, 2015
    Doosan Corporation is to deliver fuel cells for a combined cycle power plant in Bundang, South Korea.

    The deal is a world-first for double-layer fuel cells and the long-term service agreement for the plant is expected to be worth 40 billion won. In addition is represents the first supply deal since it added the fuel cell business as a new growth engine last year.

    In Korea, the Act on the Promotion of the Development, Use and Diffusion of New and Renewable Energy requires utilities companies that generate more than 500 megawatts to source a certain amount of energy production from renewable sources. This target started at 2 percent in 2012 and will gradually increase to 10 percent by 2024.

  • USA : Capstone Receives Groundbreaking C600 Order for New OATI Data Center in Minnesota
    June 01, 2015
    Capstone Turbine Corporation, the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it received an order for a 600-kilowatt microturbine system to be installed in the OATI data center and office facility currently under construction in Bloomington, Minnesota.

    "This is a groundbreaking project because for many years the prevailing theory was that the Midwest was not a hospitable market for cogeneration and trigeneration projects due to poor project economics and the conservative nature of the market here," said Justin Rathke, President of Vergent Power. "Lower natural gas prices coupled with rising electric rates have created an opening for best-in-class CHP systems, and the additional benefits of the Capstone solution are a great fit for an innovative and visionary company like OATI."
