Phase I of Energy & Innovation Park Project officially begins in New Britain

Phase I of The Energy & Innovation Park Project kicked off Thursday morning at the former Stanley Black & Decker facility. EIP Investment is a developer involved in the redevelopment of this site; O&G Industries will be the construction company for the project; and Bloom Energy will be making the fuel cell units. The first phase of this project, which officially kicked off, focuses on providing clean energy to the electrical grid while laying the ground work for major economic development through the installation of a 20 megawatt fuel cell power plant. These fuel cells are efficient and capable of generating up to 300 kilowatts per unit. They generate energy without combustion through the use of an ultraclean electrochemical reaction. According to Stewart, if all goes as planned the fuel cell farm will take about two years to install with the completion being sometime in the first quarter of 2024.
