FuelCell Energy seeks Connecticut non-approval for fuel cell project

FuelCell Energy Inc., on behalf of Pepperidge Farm Inc., on Dec. 4 asked the Connecticut Siting Council to declare that a siting certificate is not required for its 1.4-MW fuel cell combined heat and power project at a Pepperidge Farm bakery facility in Bloomfield, Conn.

FuelCell Energy has an EPC contract with Pepperidge Farm to build this project. It is a winning project in a solicitation by Connecticut Light and Power. This new facility would be located next to a 1.2-MW fuel cell facility that FuelCell Energy installed in 2008.

The project, which will use natural gas, will include a blind “T” flange for later installation of a heat recovery system.
