January 31, 2005 by Jeff Shepard

Fuel Cell Technologies Ltd., the operating subsidiary of Fuel Cell Technologies Corp. (FCT, Kingston, ON), and TOTO Ltd. have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) regarding the design, development and manufacture of a 2 kW to 3 kW solid-oxide fuel cell (SOFC) system. Under the terms of the MOU, FCT will design and build a small SOFC system for residential markets using tubular cell stacks supplied by TOTO.

The MOU between the companies allows for further expansion of FCT products into new introductory markets. It also provides for the supply to FCT of small-size SOFC tubes well suited to power products in the 2 kW size range, and is a step in FCT’s SOFC product diversification strategy.
