May 24, 2012: Fuel Cell Manufacturer Breaks Ground on New East Coast Manufacturing Facility
KR Sridhar, principal co-founder and chief executive officer of Bloom Energy said, “Once the Bloom Energy Manufacturing Center is completed, we will double Bloom Energy’s production capacity. Delaware complements our California roots and strategically positions us to better serve our expanding customer base.”
At the groundbreaking ceremony, Sridhar announced Bloom’s new customers, which include Owens Corning, Urban Outfitters, Delmarva Power, Washington Gas, and AT&T, which already uses Bloom Energy Servers at its California facilities. They join Google, eBay, Wal-Mart, Staples, and Coca-Cola that have already installed Bloom’s solid oxide fuel cell technology.
The Bloom Energy Manufacturing Center will become the anchor tenant of the new University of Delaware Science, Technology and Advanced Research Campus. Construction is expected to be completed in mid-2013, with manufacturing set to begin shortly afterwards.
