• EFOY fuel cells available for the first time as special equipment in Westfalia mobile homes
• Reliable, emission-free power supply with EFOY fuel cells for Westfalia’s “James Cook” model

Brunnthal/Munich, Rheda-Wiedenbrueck, August  28, 2009 –Westfalia has joined other leading European manufacturers of mobile homes in selecting EFOY fuel cells for its vehicles. Effectively immediately, customers who buy the Westfalia series “James Cook” can have their new vehicle equipped with EFOY fuel cells ex works, giving them even more independence and comfort on board. EFOY fuel cells—more than 14,000 of which have been sold around the world—are now offered as an optional accessory in the Westfalia product line. They reliably provide mobile homes with power without generating any harmful emissions, thereby guaranteeing maximum freedom far away from the power grid.

“We appreciate the increase of flexibility that fuel cells offer our customers”,” said Sven Duebbers, Managing Director at Westfalia. “We have built in EFOY fuel cells in the “James Cook” due to customer requirement multiple times by now: The installation is easy and the fuel cell blends in well in the vehicle. We are looking forward to our customer’s experience and feedback”.

“We are very proud that our EFOY fuel cells are available as of now in Westfalia’s motorhome legend, ‘James Cook’”, said Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Smart Fuel Cell AG. “This again proves that an ever-growing community of mobile home owners is convinced by our products, because they offer independence and maximum comfort on board the vehicle“.

EFOY fuel cells come in five models, ranging from 600 to 2200 watt hours charging capacity per day. With a consumption of less than one liter of fuel, they provide economically, environmentally-friendly and comfortable power supply for mobile homes, far away from the power grid. The related EFOY M5 and M10 fuel cartridges with five or ten liters of fuel can be bought at more than 1,200 sales points throughout Europe.
The “James Cook” is one of the best-selling motor homes in its class. This year, the classic by Westfalia has been selected “motorhome of the year” by readers of “promobil” magazine  for  the 19th time. The legendary mobile home design is appealing because it provides high quality, intelligent features and maximum functionality in a very small space. With a comfortable double bed in the living area and two additional sleeping-places in the comfortable loft conversion it provides enough space for up to four travellers.  The interior is rounded off by a practical kitchen unit in L-shape and the sanitary area with sink, shower base and case toilet. The “James Cook” includes crash-tested safety technology like ABS, ESP and driver and co-driver airbags.
SFC Smart Fuel Cell will display the EFOY fuel cells at Stand A36, Hall 13, at the Caravan Salon in Duesseldorf, from 29 August to 6 September 2009.
Westfalia presents its product novelties at Caravan Salon Duesseldorf: Hall 12, A06-01 & A06-02.
