Europe’s first fuel cell of megawatt size in an industrial environment is to be built in Germany.

The 1.4MW fuel cell will be installed at a production plant in Mannheim.

E.ON plans to build, own and operate the project to supply clean energy to the plant.

It will meet around 60% of the plant’s power needs.

Robert Hienz, CEO of E.ON Connecting Energies: “This case shows how high-efficiency technologies can grow mature and serve real customer needs, such as reducing CO2 emissions by around 25% and significantly cut energy cost as a production factor.”

The firm expects it to cut CO2 by around 3,000 tons a year.

It is working with FRIATEC on the project.
