Summary

In the past years, Sulzer Hexis has been conducting a series of field tests for its 1kW electric SOFC co-generation unit. These tests were primarily undertaken to test functionality of the Hexis SOFC stack and identify system requirements dictated by real service environments. In preparation for industrial manufacturing planned in 2004, Sulzer Hexis is developing and testing manufacturing techniques that will enable the production of large numbers of reliable SOFC co-generation units. An introductory phase, extending from 2001 to 2003, will introduce a highly integrated pre-series product, the HXS 1000 PREMIERE, where many fabrication steps involved in its production have been automated.
