FuelCell Energy Inc. (FCE, Danbury, CT), a manufacturer of electric power generation plants, announced that it has received a new order for six fuel cell stacks from its European partner MTU CFC Solutions GmbH, a subsidiary of DaimlerChrysler AG. FuelCell Energy will deliver the additional 1.5 MW of stacks, consisting of six 250 kW units, in 2006. Financial terms of the sale were not disclosed.

MTU, which in previous years purchased a total of 2.75 MW of fuel cell stacks, incorporates FuelCell Energy’s technology in the HotModule segment of plant design it manufactures for the European market.

Customers for MTU’s HotModule power plant design will be announced at a later date.
