EFOY Fuel Cell by SFC Wins 2009 ‘Best Product’ Award from Motorcaravan Motorhome Monthly

  • MMM Reader Survey Earns EFOY Fuel Cell Silver Medal

Brunnthal/Munich, Germany - Jan. 16, 2009 - The popular EFOY fuel cell by SFC Smart Fuel Cell AG, a leading supplier of fuel cell products for mobile and off-grid power applications, has won another prestigious award from the motorhome industry. In a reader survey by Motorcaravan Motorhome Monthly, Britain’s biggest motorhome and motor caravan magazine with a circulation in excess of 35,000 a month, the EFOY fuel cell garnered second place in the category 'Best Product of the Year'.

The MMM Awards recognise the best motorhomes, dealers, products, base vehicles and manufacturers in Great Britain, based on a survey of the magazine’s readers. The results are regarded as an indicator of the acceptance of specific brands in the British market, because the results are based on direct customer feedback. The MMM Awards are sponsored by The Caravan Club, which provides services and activities for 1 million caravan, motor caravan and trailer-tent owners throughout the UK and Ireland.

'This recognition of our EFOY fuel cell by British motorhome owners and buyers underscores wide marketplace acceptance of our brand,' said Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Smart Fuel Cell. 'Having twice won a prestigious third place in the German 'promobil' Reader Awards, the silver trophy in the MMM Awards clearly shows that EFOY fuel cells have become an established clean onboard power source also in Great Britain and Ireland for all who want to enjoy the full comfort and independence of their motorhome even far away from the grid.'

EFOY fuel cells provide ultimate dependability and are maintenance free. They are available as standard or optional equipment in the catalogues of 37 international motorhome manufacturers. The EFOY fuel cell comes in four different models: EFOY 600, EFOY 900, EFOY 1200 and EFOY 1600, offering a silent, clean and safe charging capacity of 600 to 1,600 watt hours per day for motorhomes, sailboats and holiday and mountain cabins.

EFOY fuel cells are sold at over 800 sales points all over Europe, where customers can also buy the five- and 10-litre EFOY fuel cartridges. SFC also offers the EFOY Pro series for professional industrial users. The Pro series includes three models with a charging capacity ranging from 600 to 1,600 Wh per day and is designed to meet the demanding requirements of off-grid industrial systems like security cameras, measuring and early warning sensors, traffic systems and many more applications.
