SOFCPOWER

SOFCpower SpA is an Italian company that develops and manufactures SOFC–based products for stationary applications. The company was founded in 2006 starting from former SOFC development activities of the Eurocoating-Turbocoating Group, a privately-held group with a 35 years’ experience in the fields of coatings and processes for gas turbines, machinery and biotechnology. In 2007, SOFCpower acquired HTceramix SA (HTc) in Yverdon-les-Bains (Switzerland), a spin-off of Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL). The main focus of HTc is System Engineering.

EPFL-LENI remains a strategic partner for simulation, testing and validation at both stack and system level. Since 2008, SOFCpower-HTc has invested in and operated a pilot production line in Italy (Mezzolombardo, TN) for manufacturing of cells, stacks and HoTbox™ power modules. Several test rigs and testing infrastructures have been also installed at the pilot plant to monitor the quality of production and to support on-going development.

Within ENDURANCE, SOFCpower manufactures components and short stacks for testing.
