Brunnthal, November 6, 2007 – With another major order of EFOY fuel cells the Trigano group has again underlined the growing importance of the EFOY fuel cell series in France. Through its two members Trigano Service and Euro Accessoires the Trigano group, France’s biggest motor home specialist, has ordered approx. 600 EFOY fuel cells. The order value is over 1 million EUR.
As motor homes in France are often used away from campgrounds and campsites and thus without access to the power grid, the need for a reliable power source on board is very strong. More and more caravanning fans are turning away from generators and PV systems because of their inconvenience or unavailability in bad weather. EFOY fuel cells provide electrical power anytime and anywhere needed, regardless of the season or the weather. They are lightweight, silent, environmentally friendly and fully automatic. 'The fuel cell is a perfect solution for the problem of power independence in the motor home. EFOY fuel cells are top technology yet very easy to use, a fact that has been very beneficial for their rapid commercialization', says Henri Torrosian, Director of the Accessories Division of Trigano group. 'We have been cooperating with SFC for several years now in what has become a true partnership. We believe strongly in the successful future of EFOY fuel cells in the caravanning market.'
'France is fast becoming the most important leisure market for our EFOY fuel cells', says Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Smart Fuel Cell AG. 'The Trigano group with their excellent reputation and retail network in France and many other European countries and with their passion for product innovation and outstanding customer service is a perfect partner for us in our efforts to grow this market even further.'
The EFOY fuel cell is available at caravanning retailers across Europe. It comes in four models with a charging capacity of 600 Wh, 900 Wh, 1200 Wh resp. 1600 Wh per day. The EFOY fuel cartridges required for operation of the fuel cell can be bought at over 600 sales points in Europe. One EFOY M10 cartridge contains 10 litres and will supply a motor home with independent power for up to four weeks.
