STARWOOD EXPANDS FUEL CELL POWER TO WESTIN
Starwood Hotels & Resorts is expanding its fuel cell power plants to its Westin brand with plans to install a 500-kilowatt fuel cell power plant at the Westin San Francisco Airport Hotel.
The power plant will supply base load power for the 390-room hotel while the heat byproduct will be used to heat the hotel's indoor pool.
The manufacturer of the Direct FuelCell (DFC) power plant is FuelCell Energy, a Danbury, CT firm that has installed similar power plants in several Sheraton hotels.
Once the Westin hotel is installed and operating, Starwood will be generating 2.75 megawatts of ultra-clean power for five of its U.S. hotels in California, New Jersey and New York.
