May 18, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

Nuvera Fuel Cells Inc. (Cambridge, MA) announced that it was selected by the US Department of Defense to demonstrate its newest product prototype, a 4kW natural gas fuel cell system called Avanti™, at the US Coast Guard (USGC) facility in Bristol, RI. The contract was awarded through the Construction Engineering Research Laboratory, which is part of the US Army Engineer Research and Development Center.

The award calls for the installation, operation, maintenance and monitoring of Avanti systems over a period of one year. The systems, which are slated for delivery later this year, are fully integrated and operate in parallel with the electric grid.
