Los Angeles AFB is located within El Segundo city limits, The base is divided into two areas; Area A where most major units are located, and Area B which houses the GI Air Base Group, the clinic, BX and commissary.
Logan Energy operates a Plug Power GenSys 5kw Combined Heat and Power fuel cell power plant at Ft MacArthur Civil Engineering Headquarters, building 56. It was electrically configured to provide grid/parallel independent service and also thermally integrated with the facility's hot water system.
Location: Yosemite Valley, CA
Application: Administration Building
A 5Kw Plug Power GenSys 5P fuel cell was installed at the Park Service Administration Building. The fuel cell was electronically configured to provide grid parallel/synchronous operating service and was also thermally integrated into the building's hot water system.
This installation was unique in that it required special attention to environmental, historical and Native American culture concerns. The fuel was operational as of July 2004 and was decommissioned in Nov 2005. This demonstration achieved an overall availability of 91% and electrical efficiency of 23%. Annual energy savings totalled $1.892.16. The test period concluded with a total 12,963 fuel cell load hours and 22,953kWh.

Application: Office Building
This facility is a 12-storey office building which houses multiple US Government Agencies. The property was formerly known as the Guaranty Savings Bank, Commonly referred to as the 'G Building', and dates back to the mid 1920's. In 1990, Guaranty Savings closed and the building was unoccupied until purchased by the current owners in 1997. 24 months of extensive renovation and modernisation brought it to its current state.
Logan energy installed three UTC PC200 fuel cell power plants for this project, as a part of the building renovation. The plants are located in the mechanical yard situated between the western wall of the parking deck and a service alleyway that runs just outside the mechanical yard security wall. The units were electrically configured to provide grid parallel/grid independent service to the site and are also thermally integrated to provide heating, cooling, and domestic hot water.

Camp Mabry Army National Guard Base in Austin, TX houses the Texas Military Forces Academy, which is the second state building constructed, opened on June 15, 1884. The educational facility conducts and houses multiple specialised schools. The post also boasts numerous supply and warehouse facilities.
Logan Energy, in cooperation with Austin Energy, operates a Plug Power GenSys 5Kw Combined Heat and Power fuel cell power plant at the Texas National Guard Museum Camp Mabry, TX. The unit is electrically configured to provide grid parallel service to the site and provides waste heat to a small desiccant HVAC unit to provide 50% humidity in the moisture-sensitive displays in the museum.

A 5kW Plug Power GenSys 5P fuel cell was installed at this site, at the residence of Lt Col T Yang, CE Squadron Commander. The fuel cell was electronically configured to provide grid parallel/grid independent service and was also thermally integrated into the home's hot water system.
The fuel cell was commissioned in March 2005 and operated for almost six months with an availability of 96% and an electrical efficiency of 25%. No thermal data was recovered in the process. In August 2005, Hurricane Katrina struck the AFB and submerged the fuel cell in ten feet of water. Currently, the demonstration is halted until further notice.
Location: Keflavic, Iceland
Application: Telecommunications Backup Power
Under terms of its FY'04 DoD PEM Demonstration Contract with ERDC/CERL, Logan Energy operates a Plug Power Gen-Core 5kW auxiliary fuel cell power plant at the Leifur Eriksson Air Terminal at the Keflavik International Airport.
The Keflavic Airport is a major stopping point between North America and Europe. The airport served 1.7 million passengers in 2005. The hydrogen-powered unit will be electrically configured to provide DC electricity to a simulated DC bus next to the terminal building. In this configuration, it will stimulate support of critical or emergency loads so that PEM fuel cell power generation can be properly evaluated as a back-up power source. Following the demonstration period the unit will be placed into operational service supporting critical communications loads.
Iceland's stated goal of being the first nation in the world to convert entirely to a hydrogen economy makes it an ideal location for a Hydrogen PEM fuel cell demonstration. A very strong team has been developed to assist with this project including the Naval Air Station Keflavik, the Icelandic Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Technological Institute of Iceland, the US Embassy in Iceland, and the Icelandic New Energy Company.

At Logan Energy we are involved in many educational events, the best way to explain how a fuel cell works is take it to the people!
Our 5 kWe PEM fuel cell powered by hydrogen has been used across the UK to power-
Music festivals (recharging mobile phones and main lighting and sound )
Remote venues where no grid power is available
Trade shows and exhibitions
To discuss the hire of the trailer please contact us to check availability.
Logan Energy have completed the installation and integration of a 200kWe PAFC power module and associated cooling module at the TfL Palestra Building in Southwark, London.
The fuel cell forms part of an integrated tri-generation system providing electrical energy, heat and cooling to the Palestra building. It is the largest capacity fuel cell operating in London.
Kit Malthouse, Deputy Mayor of London said “it’s an established technology that makes commercial and operational sense, saving money and providing more resilience – as well as the obvious environmental benefits”.
Detailed Case study
SSE’s customer service centre, IT and telecoms businesses, energy sales, metering and administration under one roof in the former Autoliv factory on the shore of Langstone Harbour.
The scheme comprises a 200kWe fuel cell power module operating on natural gas The fuel cell provide two thermal energy streams which are being utilised to provide high grade heat to drive a 90kW absorption chiller and low grade to pre-heat hot water feeding the main building air handling units.
The balance of plant comprises an adiabatic V form chiller, various circulating pumps and heat exchangers required to complete the integration of the system.
The fuel cell system will operate regardless of the status of the interconnected mechanical plant, so a pump fails or the absorption chiller develops a fault the fuel cell system will continue to operate rejecting any unused heat to it own heat rejection module.
