Industrial Electric Heaters

Ceramic Fuel Cells Limited (CFCL) is providing solutions using nanotechnology which meets these efficiency and environmental goals

Ceramic Fuel Cells Limited, (AIM/ASX:CFU)  has sold three BlueGen gas-to-electricity generators to one of the UK's leading energy companies, E.ON


 Cermamic Fuel Cell Introduce The BlueGen Fuel Cell micro CHP unit in Germany (14/12/10)


Currently Not Available In The UK or Ireland
BlueGen is the latest breakthrough in small scale electricity generation - a modular style fuel cell generator that can be configured to suit a range of different markets and installations.  For markets that require an alternative product approach to fully-integrated 'European style' systems, such as Japan, Northern America and Australia - BlueGen™ bridges that gap.

BlueGen Ceramic Fuel Cells Limited

The future of electricity generation will be using a Distributed Generation network, where electricity can be generated and consumed at the point of use. Distributed Generation networks can address the concerns of; increasing electricity demand, limitations of traditional power generation, efficiency losses through transmission & distribution lines and significant infrastructure investment. There is a need today, and in the future, for secure and highly efficient generation of electricity with significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions. BlueGen™ is the latest in Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) technology to deliver highly efficient electricity.

BlueGen™ utilises the latest Gennex™ fuel cell module that offers the highest levels electrical efficiency in the world – 60% net electrical efficiency. This means BlueGen™ produces more electricity from the same amount of fuel compared to traditional small scale electric generators.

Gennex Fuel Cell

BlueGen™ is fitted with an integrated heat exchanger to recover the heat from the fuel cell module. A separate water tank (not supplied) can be connected to the unit to increase the total system efficiency.

BlueGen™ can be installed as:

  • SSElectric Generator system; no heat recovery = power only
  • SSCo-Generation Ssystem; Swith Sheat Srecovery S= power + heat

Because of the high level of electric efficiency, BlueGen™ produces much less heat than other electric generators. Less heat means the unit can operate for longer, which in turn means, more high-efficiency electricity that helps reduce CO2

The BlueGen™ unit can operate as a stand-alone generator or be remotely controlled. The output power level can be adjusted to suit a number of different electricity production requirements; from ‘constant base-load power’ generation to pre-set ‘peak shaving’ generation profiles. The BlueGen™ unit has a number of different operating modes:


• Fully automatic using mains power (grid Sindependent Sstart-up Snot Spossible)

Self sustain

• Unit is producing electricity, but with zero power export (e.g. in event of extended grid fault)

Power production

• Unit is exporting electricity; power output can be modulated from 0% to 100%

Cool down

• Using mains power (approx. 36 to 72 hours for safe cool down)
