FuelCell Energy resumes manufacturing at its Torrington facility

Danbury-based FuelCell Energy has resumed manufacturing at its Torrington facility.  Activity was temporarily suspended on March 18th as a proactive and voluntary measure due to COVID-19.  All employees affected by the temporary shutdown remained employed by FuelCell and have received full pay and benefits. 

Some work from home practices, limited laboratory activity and fuel cell platform construction and operations services did continue.  FuelCell officials say they were able to continue research and development work on a carbon capture solution under a joint development agreement with ExxonMobil Research and Engineering.  U.S. Department of Energy cooperative agreements on the development of advanced solid oxide electrolysis, hydrogen storage, and hydrogen power generation also continued.  Progress was also made on construction of the 7.4 megawatt fuel cell project located on the U.S. Navy Submarine Base in Groton. 

The company has self-certified with the State of Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development its commitment to compliance with all applicable sector guidelines.
