Business minister opens new Ceres Power factory in Sussex

Mark Prisk MP, state minister for business and enterprise, has officially opened Ceres Power’s new volume fuel-cell manufacturing facility in Horsham, Sussex.

With this development, Ceres Power has created more than 170 ‘green collar’ jobs at the new manufacturing facility in Horsham and technology centre in Crawley.

This manufacturing facility can be expanded to produce up to 30,000 fuel cell CHP products per annum, which the company claims will create substantial additional skilled jobs in advanced manufacturing engineering and operations, as well as in the local supply chain.

Ceres Power also claims there are now further opportunities to export significant volumes of the CHP product globally.
