Parker Announces First Solid Oxide Fuel Cell System Installation

System Co-Developed with WATT Fuel Cell Corp to Produce Clean, Efficient Power and Heat in Recreational Vehicle and Marine applications.

The Energy Systems Business Unit of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, today announced the first field installation of its combined heat and power solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) system. Silently and efficiently running on propane, the Parker Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Fuel Cell System provides power independence and optional heating and hot water for customers in the recreational vehicle and marine markets. The system, which was co-developed with New York based Watt Fuel Cell Corp., is being installed on a 36-foot sailboat.

“Society’s dependence on power continues to increase, creating a growing expectation that all the comforts and amenities of the home are also available in remote settings,” said Steve Knight, Energy Systems Business Unit Manager for Parker Hannifin. “Unlike generators, SOFC technology allows users to power up “off grid” silently and without vibration or fear of harmful emissions.”
