Coca-Cola Facility in New York to use UTC Power Fuel Cell

02 Jul 2009

UTC Power announced it will supply two of its new PureCell Model 400 fuel cell systems to provide on-site electricity and heat for a Coca-Cola Enterprises production facility in Elmsford, N.Y.  Together, the fuel cells will generate enough energy and heat for 30 percent of the facility’s overall operational needs. They also will serve as a backup source of power in the case of a utility power outage.  UTC Power will own, operate and maintain the fuel cells as part of a 10 year energy services agreement. 

A Coca-Cola Enterprises spokesman said that the fuel cell systems will help the company further its environmental commitment to local communities and reduce its carbon footprint and use of the local power grid.  The company has also deployed 20 hybrid electric delivery trucks throughout metro New York City and has installed innovative water-saving technology in all of its New York production facilities. CCE is also considering adding fuel cells at some of its 431 facilities across North America and Western Europe.

The project received $2 million in funding support from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).
