Ceramic Fuel Cells Reaches One Million Hours of Operation

May 16, 2012

Ceramic Fuel Cells Ltd. recently announced its products have achieved a combined one million hours of operation. The company’s first field trial units were operated in Australia, New Zealand and Germany from early 2006. In 2007, the company developed its high-efficiency Gennex fuel cell module, which is the core of the company’s BlueGen product and integrated mCHP products.

Up to May 1, 189 units have been operated at Ceramic Fuel Cells’ facilities in Melbourne and Germany, as well as at customer sites in nine countries. Cumulative operation from all of these systems has now passed one million hours.

Brendan Dow, managing director, said milestones such as one million hours of operation are important. “These units are not just operating in our labs, but at many customer sites in nine countries around the world,” he said. “We continue to optimize the lifetime and reliability of our products, offering customers a real alternative to energy generation, saving them money and dramatically reducing their carbon emissions.”
