Casino Takes Advantage of Fuel Cell Power

March 17, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] A zero-emission fuel cell/battery hybrid engine from Anuvu is powering a neighborhood electric vehicle developed for Mohegan Sun, one of the largest entertainment destinations in the US. The fuel cell car, the first of its kind in New England, is a converted GEM (Global Electric Motorcars) vehicle. An Anuvu Power-X 3 kW PEM fuel cell powers the GE electric motor. Acceleration and braking are provided by a hybrid battery pack. The car will be used at Mohegan Sun as a passenger and light weight transportation vehicle. The fuel cell/electric motor hybrid vehicle is designed for performing basic on-premise tasks for the resort, typically traveling at speeds of 12-25 miles per hour with zero emissions. Mohegan Sun also boasts an onsite 500 kW fuel cell power plant providing power to the casino, and a new regenerative fuel cell system that was unveiled at the recent launch of the resortýs Energy, Environment, Economics and Education Center. The Anuvu-powered fuel cell car will be on display at the Fuel Cell Investment Summit, March 14-16, 2004, held at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut. The project is a collaboration of the DOE, Mohegan Sun, Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), W.L. GORE, the Center for Technology Commercialization (CTC), and the Foundation for Advancing Science and Technology Education (FASTec).
