GE Fuel Cells expands manufacturing capabilities in Malta
MALTA, N.Y. — GE Fuel Cells, a subsidiary of multinational conglomerate General Electric, announced it will build a new test site for its 1-megawatt fuel cells at the Saratoga Technology + Energy Park in Malta.
The company already has a 20,000-square-foot manufacturing facility at the site, and the expansion will increase the company’s footprint by 9,986 square feet just north of 107 Hermes Road where it will manufacture the new 1-megawatt fuel cell. GE Fuel Cells already has a 50-kilowatt fuel cell generation system installed at Hudson Valley Community College’s TEC-SMART campus in Malta.
A manufacturer of fuel cells for commercial and residential use, GE Fuel Cells’ new 1-megawatt fuel cell is projected to be able to power 1,000 homes, increasing power generating efficiency and ultimately driving down costs. This revolutionary product is expected to reach market by 2017.
