NexTech and Plug Power to Collaborate on SOFC System (9/19/06)

NexTech Materials, Ltd. and Plug Power Inc. have announced a collaboration to develop a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) power system. The two companies plan to complete a number of joint activities, including market research, fuel cell stack development and testing, system design, and prototype construction.

"Demonstration of high-power-density fuel cell stacks opens new avenues of cooperation between NexTech and system manufacturers," said Bill Dawson, president and chief executive officer of NexTech. "We are pleased to have Plug Power, an established leader in the deployment of clean, reliable on-site energy products, as our partner in this project."

The initial target market is military, particularly for U.S. Air Force and Army applications. Other potential markets include premium assured (wireless communications) and commercial stationary backup power applications.
