FuelCell Energy resumes production at Torrington facility

June 24, 2020 |

In Connecticut, FuelCell Energy, Inc. said that it has resumed manufacturing at its Torrington, CT facility. The Company previously announced that it had temporarily suspended manufacturing activities on March 18, 2020 in light of the COVID-19 outbreak as a proactive and voluntary measure to secure the safety of the Company’s employees and the communities in which our employees live. All team members affected by the temporary shutdown have remained employed by the Company and have received full pay and benefits for the duration of the temporary shutdown.

By implementing work from home practices and continuing limited laboratory activity and fuel cell platform construction and operations services, the Company was able to continue its research and development work regarding the Company’s carbon capture solution under our joint development agreement with ExxonMobil Research and Engineering, the development of our advanced solid oxide electrolysis, hydrogen storage, and hydrogen power generation under our US Department of Energy cooperative agreements, construction of our project backlog, and routine fuel cell platform service and operations. During this time, progress was also made on construction of the 7.4 megawatt fuel cell project located on the U.S. Navy Submarine Base in Groton, CT, and on-site construction of the 1.4 megawatt fuel cell platform in San Bernardino, California commenced.
