Coca-Cola installs fuel cells at production unit in New York
(ADPnews) - Oct 22, 2010 - Coca-Cola Refreshments USA (CCR) said yesterday operations at its Elmsford, New York production facility are being powered by two fuel cells.
UTC Power, a United Technologies Corp company (NYSE: UTX), installed and is operating two PureCell Model 400 fuel cell systems that provide 35% of the electricity and heat required by the facility. The project was co-funded by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).
The using of the fuel cells will prevent the release of more than 2,635 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide.
Coca-Cola has recently signed a contract to install two more UTC Power fuel cells at its bottling plant in East Hartford, Conn.
