Torrington Factory is Capable of Producing 100 Megawatts per Year and Sized to Scale to 200 Megawatts

Constructed in 2001, the Torrington factory had an initial operating capacity of 50 megawatts per year. Today, the factory is capable of producing 100 megawatts per year and is sized to scale to approximately 200 megawatts with additional investment in machinery. The products being manufactured and delivered are megawatt class fuel cells with electrical efficiencies of up to 60% and a cell life of seven years. Deployments range in size from 1.4 megawatt for university and hospital campus installations to a 60 megawatt utility scale fuel cell park.

CEO's Statement

Commenting on the announcement, Chip Bottone, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of FuelCell Energy, stated that with approximately 85 megawatts of new projects slated for production over the next 18 months, and a very active pipeline of new projects, the Company is confident that this is the right time to take this action. Bottone mentioned that the Company's financial performance has reflected the impact of the reduced manufacturing run-rate over the past couple of years, costing the business over $12 million annually in under-absorbed factory overhead. Once this production increase is fully implemented, FuelCell Energy will no longer have this drag on its financial results. Bottone added that this, combined with the growing generation portfolio revenues, service revenues, and advanced technologies activity, sets up 2019 to be an improved year for the Company as it continues its march to sustained profitability.

Reports suggest that post announcement of the news, FuelCell Energy's shares soared in pre-market trade.
