HARC and Sieco SA Sign Collaborative Agreement

January 21, 2002 by Jeff Shepard

The Houston Advanced Research Center (HARC, Houston, TX) and Sieco SA (Buenos Aires, Argentina) have signed a cooperative agreement to work together to develop projects that promote new technologies related to fuel cells, power generation and energy storage in South America.

"Both HARC and Sieco possess unique capabilities," said Todd Mitchell, HARC president. "This agreement allows each party to tap into the other's expertise and resources to design large-scale power utility infrastructure projects. We are especially interested in determining how practical it is to produce power systems that utilize hydrogen for later use as fuel to generate electricity. If so, countries with large hydroelectric power infrastructures, such as Brazil and Argentina, could benefit enormously."
