20,000 satisfied customers already rely on the winter-proof and maintenance-free mobile energy supply provided by EFOY fuel cells of SFC Energy AG. Celebrating the achievement of this milestone at the Holiday Exhibition CMT in Stuttgart, Pierre Rousseau, CEO of Rapido, and Dr Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy AG, handed the 20,000th EFOY fuel cell over to its buyer, who will immediately begin using the EFOY in his Rapido motorhome. The manufacturer, Rapido SAS, one of the leading European motorhome manufacturers and an important partner of SFC, successfully provides the EFOY fuel cell as part of the standard equipment ex works in his series 10.

“We are delighted to be part of this milestone for SFC,” says Pierre Rousseau. “We have profited tremendously from our long-time collaboration with SFC. The possibility for the customers of our upscale motorhomes to easily install an EFOY is an important sales argument. SFC provides them with a tailor-made mobile power supply for their motorhome.”

“20,000 successfully sold EFOY fuel cells throughout the world are a true landmark for the entire industry. Behind every one of these fuel cells is an off-grid application, which needs to be reliably supplied with energy. We are delighted with this achievement and the confidence our customers and partners have placed in us,” says Dr Peter Podesser. “We are pleased that the 20,000th EFOY fuel cell was sold by Rapido, our main customer for series-production. Together with Rapido and Westfalia, a long-time partner of SFC and now also part of the Rapido Group, we will further advance the development and commercialisation of EFOY fuel cells.”

Having already sold 20,000 fuel cells, SFC has stood for eco-friendly, resource-conserving, off-grid energy in leisure, industry and defence applications for years. SFC’s wide range of products provides attractive individual solutions for both private and industry users requiring reliable mobile energy supply. SFC fuel cells supply fully-automated energy around the clock, regardless of season or weather. They are lightweight, quiet and emission-free. The corresponding fuel cartridges are available in over 1,500 points of sale throughout Europe, thereby ensuring self-sufficiency for weeks.

Visitors of the CMT in Stuttgart can see the EFOY fuel cell in operation from 15 to 23 January 2011 at the EFOY booth, in hall 7, booth 7D 32.
