Follow-up order for EFOY fuel cells in low six-digit euro range +++ EFOY fuel cells provide environmentally friendly energy for AuroraHut’s houseboat igloos in Finland and now also in Canada
Brunnthal/Munich, Germany, September 16, 2020 – SFC Energy AG (F3C:DE, ISIN: DE0007568578), a leading provider of hybrid power solutions to the stationary and mobile power generation markets, is vigorously driving the development towards environmentally friendly energy sources. Now SFC has won a follow-up order for EFOY fuel cells from AuroraHuts Oy, a Finnish manufacturer of igloo houseboats. The order volume is in the low six-digit euro range.
AuroraHuts Oy and SFC Energy have been cooperating in sustainable tourism since October 2019. AuroraHut® is a completely new way of making the dream holiday an unforgettable experience in every respect. The innovative panoramic cabins float as houseboats over impressive lake landscapes. The EFOY fuel cell quietly and reliably provides off-grid power for lighting the boat and for all other devices on board. Powerful, environmentally friendly and odorless, it also charges the battery of the boat e-engine. This gives guests the opportunity to change the location of their AuroraHut® on the lake as they wish. Thanks to EFOY fuel cells – this makes their stay an incomparable holiday experience in the heart of nature and, above all, in harmony with nature.
This way AuroraHut® users can enjoy their vacation in the middle of nature with a clear conscience, without having to forego the comforts of a hotel vacation.
“AuroraHuts and SFC Energy, that’s a perfect fit. We are very excited about the enriching cooperation for sustainable tourism and an immediate nature experience for our customers. It is also part of our growth strategy to secure patent protection for the Aurora concept in North America and in other northern countries,” says Juha Kärkkäinen, Managing Director of AuroraHuts Oy.
“As we understand soft tourism in a way that people are close to nature and at the same time protect it, the cooperation of AuroraHuts and SFC Energy meets these requirements in the best possible way. It is time to break patterns, rethink energy supply solutions and break through user-specific boundaries. This is our challenge, which we are able to meet with the fuel cell as the energy source of the future,” says Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy AG.
