SOFCpower SpA

SOFCpower (SP) is a dynamic and rapidly progressing Italian SME that develops and manufactures high temperature electroceramic devices based on the Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC) technology for stationary applications, including micro-cogeneration and remote power.

SP was created in 2006 by carving out the SOFC activities started in 2002 within the Eurocoating-Turbocoating Group, a privately-held group active in the fields of coatings and processes for gas turbines, machinery and biotechnology. In early 2007, SP acquired 100% of HTceramix SA in Yverdon-les-Bains (Switzerland), a spin-off of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL).

For the industrialization of its products, SP built a pilot manufacturing plant for cells, stacks and SOFC generators in Mezzolombardo, Italy, with a production capacity of 2 MW/year. The company is comprised of a young and motivated team of about 30 people.

Role in the project
SOFCpower develops and adapts SoA cells for ITSE operation and provides cells and short stacks to test partners.
