Samsung C&T Corp. and Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power Partner with Doosan Fuel Cell to Develop Massive Clean Energy Project
Oct 22 15
Samsung C&T Corp. and Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power have partnered with Doosan Fuel Cell to develop a massive clean energy project that can power as many as 71,500 Korean homes. Doosan will manufacture and ship 70 fuel cells that will produce 30.8 megawatts (MW) of clean energy and heat, Samsung will serve as the engineering, procurement and construction contractor, and KHNP will provide the power to a new residential complex in Busan. (KHNP, Korea's utility, and Busan, Korea's second city, will share ownership of the fuel cells.) All utility companies in South Korea must adhere to a renewable portfolio standard (similar to government mandates in 29 U.S. states), which establish regulations for clean energy integration throughout the country. As such, there is a growing acceptance of fuel cells, which produce power through an electrochemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen with no combustion and near-zero air emissions. Korean utilities are finding that fuel cells are a low land-use, high-energy option compared to traditional renewable solutions, including wind and solar. Doosan will begin shipping PureCell® Model 400 power plants this year and complete the delivery of 70 units by August 2016. When these fuel cells go live by February 2017, Doosan, which already has six projects (35 active fuel cells) in Korea, will be responsible for 105 fuel cells that generate 45 MW of electricity throughout the country.
Employees Files a Lawsuit against ClearEdge Power for Failing to Give Required Notice Before Laid Offs
Apr 30 14
A former South Windsor employee of ClearEdge Power has filed a class-action lawsuit against the company for failing to give required notice before it lay off all of its employees there. Rather than making the filing in advance of the layoffs, as required by law, ClearEdge Power gave notice to employees and state officials the day of the cuts. The letter explained that giving more notice would have ruined the company's efforts to secure new customers and investors and would have made it harder to collect payments from existing customers. ClearEdge Power reported that it has failed to get more financing or customer orders to avoid 'a shutdown and (provide) the necessary funding to keep the job operations open for the foreseeable future period of time'. According to the filing, 268 employees were laid off. The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court of Northern California, alleges that the company violated the federal law requiring that employers give 60 days' notice in the event of a mass layoff. Peter Wojciechowski, a configuration manager who worked at the South Windsor plant on Governors Highway and filed the lawsuit, also claims ClearEdge has not paid him for his full accrued vacation. His request for class-action status seeks payment for all unpaid wages, including vacation, pension, retirement plan contributions and other benefits, and all benefits that would be paid for about two months that ClearEdge Power should have given to employees as notice. It also requests payment of interest on those amounts and payment of his attorney fees.
ClearEdge Power Announces CTS Energy, LLC to Acquire 12 PureCell(R) Model 400 Fuel Cell Systems
Jan 30 14
ClearEdge Power announced that CTS Energy, LLC agreed to acquire 12 PureCell(R) Model 400 fuel cell systems as part of its full service, motion picture and television studio and production facility in the town of South Windsor, Conn. As part of the Connecticut Studios project, CTS Energy is developing an electric generation facility using the PureCell Model 400 fuel cells. The fuel cells will provide 4.98 MWs of clean, efficient power to the local grid. By generating power on-site with fuel cells, CTS Energy will prevent the release of more than 1,520 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually compared to conventional central utility generation the equivalent of planting more than 351 acres of trees. The reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions will be equal to the environmental benefit of removing more than 622 cars from the road. In addition to the reduction in air emissions, once installed these PureCell systems will save over 17 million gallons of water annually.
