Senior Designer

Fuelcell Energy Incorporated

Mechanical design of Fuel Cell Module

Accomplishments:

  • Simplified the approach of attaching an overseas shipping crate by removing costly structural bracing and replacing with welded coupling nuts resulting in a cost savings.
  • Enhanced the use of legacy components into current designs.
  • 25% cost savings on a newer efficient insulation process over the existing method.
  • Redesigned cast endplate process which resulted in reducing weight by 15% and cost of 20%.
  • Eliminated drafting /drawing time by creating and maintaining a structural steel and componentdatabase PRMS, with comparison table charts for standardization.
