Dominion has announced that it will be developing a 14.9 MW fuel cell power generating facility in Bridgeport, Conn. Dominion recently acquired this development from Danbury, Conn.-based FuelCell Energy Inc. (FCE).

Dominion Bridgeport Fuel Cell LLC has contracted with FCE to build, operate and maintain the facility. FCE will supply five proprietary Direct FuelCell stationary fuel cell systems and an organic rankine turbine that will use waste heat from the fuel cells to generate electricity.

The project is scheduled to be completed and placed into operation in late 2013. Dominion will sell the output of the power station to utility Connecticut Light & Power under a 15-year, fixed power purchase agreement.

The Dominion Bridgeport Fuel Cell facility 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.
