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.
