Danbury, CT, Nov. 3, 2005 — FuelCell Energy Inc., a manufacturer of efficient, ultra-clean fuel cell power generation plants for commercial and industrial customers, announced it has received an order for six fuel cell stacks from its European partner MTU CFC Solutions GmbH, a subsidiary of DaimlerChrysler.

MTU, which in previous years purchased a total of 2.75 MW of fuel cell stacks, incorporates FuelCell Energy’s high efficiency, low-emissions technology in the HotModule balance of plant design it manufactures for the European market. To date, MTU has installed over a dozen such power plants based on FuelCell Energy’s systems for applications such as manufacturing, wastewater treatment, telecommunications, universities, hospitals and electric utilities.
