Project Description

The project involves the design, construction, and testing of a 2MW DFC demonstration power plant in the city of Santa Clara, California. The site for the plant is located at 1255 Space Park Drive in Santa Clara. The site is owned by the City's Electric Department and is immediately adjacent to the Scott Receiving Station, a 115/60kV switching station on the City electrical system. The plant occupies a portion of the site, measuring approximately 150 feet by 150 feet.

The power plant uses 16 fuel cell stacks, each rated at 125kW. The stacks were fabricated and assembled into four 4-stack modules in FCMC's Torrington facility and truck shipped to the Santa Clara site, where they were installed into the two 1MW modules which comprise the DC power section of the plant The key plant design specifications are listed in Table 1.
