Bloom Energy Japan Limited (“Bloom Energy Japan”) today announced it installed and started operating the “Bloom Energy Server,” an innovative and clean electricity generation system, for DAIICHI KIGENSO KAGAKU KOGYO Co.,LTD. (“DAIICHI KIGENSO”) on January 25 in Fukui City, Fukui Prefecture.
The Bloom Energy Server installed for DAIICHI KIGENSO can produce 250kilowatts of power and provides approximately 25% of the building’s electric capacity needs.
The Bloom Energy Server is a breakthrough solid oxide fuel cell technology that generates clean electricity at over 60% efficiency during initial performance.
Bloom Energy Servers have been installed in many locations that require uninterrupted power supply such as data centers, manufacturing operations, communications, and facilities with high energy loads including refrigeration and critical services in the U.S.A.
DAIICHI KIGENSO installed the Bloom Energy Server for their facility called “Fukui Factory” and this installation operates with an LNG satellite*. *1 Facility that stores and gasifies liquefied natural gas (LNG) delivered from LNG terminals and supplies natural gas to equipment.
Bloom Energy Japan’s supplying of electricity generated by Bloom Energy Servers to the important facilities of ”Fukui Factory” helps contribute to reduced carbon dioxide and air pollution emissions in the industrial sector.
