Congresswoman Tsongas and Senator Kerry Tour Nuvera’s Billerica Headquarters

Congresswoman Niki Tsongas (D-MA) and Senator John Kerry (D-MA) toured Nuvera Fuel Cells’ 111,000 square foot Billerica headquarters, including 56,000  square feet in state-of-the-art manufacturing lab space, on Friday, January 25, 2008. The Company’s officers gave Senator Kerry and Congresswoman Tsongas an overview of Nuvera’s three near term products, PowerFlow™, PowerTap™ and Forza™; longer term products with potential use for military and tractor trailer applications; and their partner, East Penn Manufacturing’s product, ReadyPower™, for the forklift market.  

Bill Mitchell, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Nuvera Fuel Cells, remarked, "As the leading PEM fuel cell company in the Commonwealth, we wanted to show Senator Kerry and Congresswoman Tsongas that we are not only committed to near term commercialization of three products, but also to building a long term relationship with Billerica and Massachusetts, and to bringing manufacturing jobs back to the area."

Senator Kerry and Congresswoman Tsongas addressed Nuvera’s employees, speaking of their collective support for fuel cell commercialization activities and of Nuvera as a driving force in Massachusetts’ alternative energy development.

"It was my pleasure to visit with the employees of Nuvera Fuel Cells on Friday and see first-hand the exciting new alternative energy technologies being developed by this outstanding company," commented Congresswoman Tsongas. "I am thrilled that Nuvera has chosen to open their newest facility right here in the Fifth Congressional District, which is rapidly becoming a national leader in alternative energy innovation.  We have an excellent opportunity to bring additional green collar jobs to the Fifth District, and I will take every opportunity to work with Nuvera to promote the continued growth of this industry in our region."
