Brunnthal/Munich, September 29, 2010 - SFC Energy AG has received a further serial order from the German army. Through this order, the German army will be introducing the portable JENNY fuel cell into a new energy network for soldiers. The system solution consists of the portable JENNY fuel cell, the SFC Power Manager, a hybrid battery specially tailored to the system, and a solar panel, as well as extensive accessories. As a powerful and flexible electricity supply, the energy network allows operation of widely different power-consumers - e.g. radios, navigational equipment, night-vision equipment, laser range-finders, portable computers, and PDAs - which can be used when stationary and on the march. The order size is around 1 million Euros. The order was received in the third quarter of 2010, and the systems are expected to be delivered before the end of 2010.
With the second serial order from the German army in 2010, SFC is further extending its leadership as the main provider of independent power supplies in the defense area and moved from being a development partner to a product/system supplier. The outstanding technology of SFC allows reliable off-grid power supply, significant reduction in weight, and increased flexibility in field operations. Assuming successful deployment and the necessary budgetary funds, current user plans show that further demand can be expected over the next three years.
