LONDON, UK / ACCESSWIRE / December 2, 2016 / Active Wall St. blog coverage looks at the headline from Clean Power Company FuelCell Energy ​​​ Inc. ​​(NASDAQ: FCEL) as the company announced on December 01, 2016, that its plans for corporate restructuring with the aim to reduce costs and align production levels to current demands. As part of the restructuring, it aims to reduce 17% of its total workforce. Register with us now for your free membership and blog access at: http://www.activewallst.com/register/. One of FuelCell Energy's competitors within the Diversified Utilities space, Eversource Energy (NYSE: ES), reported on November 01, 2016, its third quarter 2016 results. AWS will be initiating a research report on Eversource Energy in the coming days. Today, AWS is promoting its blog coverage on FCEL; touching on ES. Get all of our free blog coverage and more by clicking on the links below: Commenting on the development Chip Bottone, President and CEO of FuelCell Energy, said: "We are streamlining our business and cost structure as we reduce our production levels to meet the backlog we have today while positioning FuelCell for long-term success. Our employees are our most valued assets so the decision to reduce our workforce was not made lightly." FuelCell plans to implement a wide range of cost-cutting measures including reducing materials spending. The cost-cutting initiative also includes the reduction in its workforce by 17%. A total of 96 positions will be axed and are spread across its production facilities in Torrington, Connecticut, its corporate offices in Danbury, and at a few remote locations. FuelCell will incur a cost of $3 million towards this exercise and more than 50% of this cost will be paid in cash towards severance pay. FuelCell will save approximately $6 million annually as a direct result of the job cuts. FuelCell has reduced its production rate to 25 megawatts from the earlier 50 megawatts. The lowering of the production rate is taking into consideration possible delays in the order flows in the future. FuelCell feels that this is a temporary situation and the production levels can be modified (increased or decreased) after revaluation of future trend in its order flows. FuelCell is awaiting decision from New York, where it has submitted a proposal for a utility-scale fuel cell only project. The decision from New York is expected in the H1 2017. It also plans to go ahead and develop and complete utility-scale fuel cell projects in Connecticut. FuelCell will manufacture the fuel cells needed to run the Beacon Falls Energy Park in Connecticut. When completed, the park will be the largest fuel cell facility in the world, according to Beacon Falls Energy Park officials. In early November 2016, FuelCell completed the construction and commercial operation of a 5.6 megawatt fuel cell project located on the Pfizer 160 acre research and development facility in Groton, Connecticut. FuelCell anticipates favorable changes in legislations and regulations in the states of New York and California which will help in getting more orders for the future. The outlook for orders from the European markets is positive and FuelCell has already received a second utility order from this region. On November 10, 2016, the German unit of FuelCell – FuelCell Energy Solutions GmbH merged with E.ON Connecting Energies GmbH to take advantage of the opportunities in the European markets. E.ON and FuelCell Energy Solutions jointly installed a 1.4 megawatts capacity fuel cell power plant at FRIATEC AG in Mannheim which started operation in September 2016. Canadian oil sands operators have shown interest in developing utility-owned coal/gas-fired power plants. These interests will add to FuelCell's future order pipeline. At the closing bell, on Thursday, December 01, 2016, FuelCell Energy's stock slumped 11.11%, ending the trading session at $2.00. A total volume of 1.72 million shares were traded at the end of the day, which was higher than the 3-month average volume of 628.72 thousand shares.

Annual Technical Conference - ANTEC, Conference Proceedings | Year: 2013

A New Generation of Electro fusion: A technical comparison between the new wedge coupler and the traditional cylindrical coupler for PE pipes d1000 (40″) and above. We have developed a totally new concept of electrofusion jointing method for large bore PE pipes, d1000 mm (40″) and above. The new method completely revolts existing practice with respect to easy installation, fast progress and minimal energy consumption. Compared with standard EF fittings in large dimensions the new technique allows a dramatically reduction in processing time, eases installation and does not require additional devices on site. Basic design criterion of the fittings is maximum reliability in processing of the joint under rough site conditions as well as durable operation of the pipe system. The presentation introduces the new concept, shows the advantages of the new method and highlights processing with respect to practical and economical aspects.


The greatest obstacle faced by the development and expansion of fiber optics connections for homes, particularly fiber to the home (FTTH), is today the high investment needs, whereby these are essentially comprised of excavation costs. The "final mile" and especially the connection to the home are major cost drivers. The solution at hand, developed by SWB Regional GmbH, uses the existing water mains connection to connect an empty conduit to the building, through which the fiber optics cable can then be fed to the home. This poses not only technical questions, but also raises hygiene concerns. All of the pilot studies to date have proven the functionality of the solution and confirmed the absence of any hygienic risks. Further future testing shall now determine the solution's suitability for use.

CFI Ceramic Forum International | Year: 2010

The Rheinhütte Pumps Division of FRIATEC AG has developed FNC Series of pumps made of Frikorund® and Frikotherm B® for the ceramic industry. Frikorund® is a silicate ceramic that also contains corundum and other minerals. The pump components made of Frikorund® ceramic are slip-cast. Frikotherm B® is also a silicate ceramic that has been optimized to withstand thermal shock. The pump components are fabricated by means of cold isostatic pressing and machined prior to firing. After sintering, the two materials Frikorund® and Frikotherm B® are ground to final dimensions. The Frikorund® ceramic used in the FNC pump is primarily interesting for applications involving hydrochloric acid, mixed acid, sulphuric acid or nitric acid because these acids cannot attack the ceramics.


Tubes made from high-quality, dense-sintered Al 2O 3 ceramic are reliable components in the plants of the glass and metal producing and processing industries, industrial kiln engineering and the basic chemical industry. In such plants, the service conditions often require an extremely high strength of the ceramics shape in a corrosive environment and a high thermal shock resistance. Commercially available tubes from six manufacturers were tested in an orientational study, with regard to these properties. The results of the tests revealed some drastic differences between the various types. Among the dense-sintered ceramics, the materials and products behaviour of Degussit AL23 demonstrated the optimum combination of these three properties. The Degussit AL23 strength of shape is only surpassed by Degussit AL24, a material especially developed for the high-temperature technology.


Similar problems occur when connecting pipes for repairs and integrations in water pipeline networks. The continuously growing pressure to rehabilitate leads to an increasing number of technically sophisticated material transfers. The characteristics of the different pipe materials must be considered for the prevention of consequential damages after the rehabilitation. The advantages of pipe connections with ultimate tensile strength will be explained.
