In addition to providing power to help meet RPS, the PureCell systems will be supported locally by UTC Power's Korean subsidiary, UTC Power International Services - Korea, a Seoul-based fuel cell services company with dedicated PureCell system technicians. "This first building application in Korea is an important milestone for the PureCell system, and is a testament to the proven performance of our other fuel cell installations in the country," said Eric Strayer, general manager of international sales at UTC Power. "We are part of Korea's clean energy future and are developing local capabilities for service and installation." In addition to the PureCell systems to be installed at the Lotte World Tower, UTC Power recently announced Korean South East Power Co. Ltd. (KOSEP), a public utility company in the greater Seoul area, will install seven PureCell systems at their Bundang facility in early 2013. As UTC Power's capacity grows in Korea, so does their capability to create a local clean energy workforce.
The PureCell system is a dependable and durable energy solution, with total expected efficiencies more than double those of traditional power generation sources. With its ultra-clean design, optimized performance and streamlined installation, the PureCell system is the recommended choice for facilities with baseload heat and power requirements, like the Lotte World Tower. This range of benefits is unique to the PureCell system and is unmatched in the fuel cell industry.
