Doosan Fuel Cell to Employ 300 by End of 2015
In July 2014, after buying the assets of ClearEdge Power (formerly UTC Power) out of bankruptcy, Doosan Fuel Cell, which designs and manufactures fuel cell systems that produce combined heat and power, began operations at its corporate headquarters outside of Hartford, Connecticut. Now, Doosan Fuel Cell says it will employ about 300 people by the end of 2015.
Doosan says it has won multiple contracts during the past 12 months to install and operate 440 kW PureCell fuel cells at mixed-use properties, ranging from Verizon in California to CT Transit in Connecticut. Doosan fuel cells are also helping to power facilities like Korea South East Power in Seoul, all of which equates to 140 Doosan PureCell systems under long-term service contracts in the two countries.
Doosan says disasters like Fukushima and Super Storm Sandy have driven corporate decision-makers to seek new methods that supply power and heat.
Doosan Fuel Cell America is a subsidiary of Doosan Corporation, a South Korea-based industrial company founded in 1896 that has current operations in 38 countries.
