Ceramic Fuel Cells Ltd. (CFCL) recently announced it has signed a manufacturing services memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Jabil Circuit Inc. Under the MoU, CFCL and Jabil will work together toward scaling up the manufacturing of CFCL’s Gennex fuel cell module and BlueGen electricity generation product. Jabil is a global electronic manufacturing service provider with 55 factories in 22 countries and annual revenue of $16 billion. The company’s global clean tech business unit makes a range of energy products, including solar panels, smart grid meters and wind turbines.

CFCL and Jabil will collaborate to increase CFCL’s manufacturing volumes and reduce unit costs quickly, while maintaining consistent quality and supply security. The first phase of cooperation, expected to begin in early 2012, involves CFCL sourcing selected components from Jabil’s manufacturing operations. In the second phase, CFCL will source major sub-assemblies from Jabil. In the final phase, Jabil is expected to assemble finished products as a contract manufacturer for CFCL.
