Additional information

Pyeongtaek Energy Service, a subsidiary of SK E&S, has purchased fourteen PureCell Model 400 fuel cell systems from UTC Power in the US. The project for which they’ve been ordered will be executed in two phases and the aim is to be fully operational by the end of 2013. The first phase is expected to be complete (with systems operational) in the second half of 2012. Seven PureCell systems will be installed at the new SK E&S power plant in the city of Pyeongtaek, in Korea’s Gyeonggi Province. In addition to providing power to help meet South Korea’s Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS), the PureCell systems will supply heat to Godeok International City, a centre for business, technology and global exchange. Phase II of this project, the installation of an additional seven PureCell systems at the new power plant campus in Pyeongtaek, is slated to start mid-summer 2013.
