Dominion breaks ground on 14.9 MW fuel cell power project

Dominion (NYSE: D) and FuelCell Energy Inc. (Nasdaq: FCEL) have broken ground on the 14.9 MW Dominion Bridgeport Fuel Cell project, the largest fuel cell power project in North America.

The project, located in Bridgeport, Conn., will use an electro-chemical process that converts natural gas to electricity. It is part of Project 150, a program sponsored by the state and supported by the Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority to increase renewable and clean energy projects in Connecticut by 150 MW.

FuelCell Energy will build, operate and maintain the facility under a contract with Dominion. FuelCell is supplying five Direct FuelCell stationary fuel cell power plants and an organic rankine turbine that will convert heat from the fuel cells into additional electricity.

Dominion has signed a 15-year fixed power purchase agreement with Connecticut Light & Power for electricity produced by the station.
