This project was the complete installation of a PureCell Model 400 fuel cell manufactured by UTC Power. The project included excavation for new underground utilities and a new concrete pad to support the fuel cell. In addition to the new underground work, MAI had to run all new plumbing/process piping and electrical from the building to the new fuel cell location. All of the tie in points were on fully operational systems and required extensive coordination and planning with the owner to ensure that there were no interruptions to their operations.
MAI was involved with all testing and commissioning activities and the result was a seamless start up and turnover to the owner. The owner had a tight schedule that needed to be met, MAI was able to fast track the job ahead of schedule and under budget. The fuel cell is now fully operational and is providing independent and efficient heat and energy to the building.
