Senator Corbett visits Oorja Protonics

Submitted By Fremont Chamber of Commerce

Oorja Protonics' new production facility in the Warm Springs area of Fremont had a distinguished visitor November 28, Senator Ellen M. Corbett, Senate Majority Leader. Senator Corbett represents Fremont in the State Legislature and is Chair of the Senate Select Committee on Green Jobs, Solar, Wind and Clean Technologies.

Senator Corbett met with Oorja's management team as well as engineering and production personnel who gave the Senator and her delegation an overview of the production and Quality Testing process for Oorja's Direct Methanol Fuel Cell Systems and spoke about the value of its fuel cells for the Material Handling and Refrigerated Truck Markets.

Oorja is a global leader in the Development, Manufacturing and Commercialization of Direct Methanol Fuel Cells that are being used by several customers across the US as on-board battery chargers for material handling equipment. The OorjaPac family of fuel cell products operates on widely available and low?cost liquid alcohol fuel. The fuel cell installed on the equipment provides the additional benefit of minimal infrastructure requirement thus making it attractive for both existing and new facilities with a very attractive payback.

"We feel honored that Senator Corbett has chosen to visit Oorja's new production facility and are really encouraged to hear her talk about her plans to bring manufacturing of renewable energy technologies to California." said Dr. Sanjiv Malhotra, CEO and President of Oorja Protonics, Inc.
