Brunnthal/Munich, Germany, April 20, 2010 – SFC, technology and market leader in mobile and remote power solutions based on fuel cells, presents new attractive power solutions for mobile and off-grid industrial applications at this year’s Hanover Fair. Special feature: SFC’s complete power solutions are convenient all-in-one power packages. Once installed they work like an off-grid socket - fully automatic, reliable, maintenance-free, and user friendly.
SFC’s all-in-one hybrid systems contain everything needed for powering devices away from the grid - EFOY Pro fuel cell, fuel cartridge, battery and required cables and connectors. Depending on the users” power requirements they can be combined with any EFOY Pro series model, any EFOY fuel cartridge type, and several different kinds of batteries. They are maintenance free, remote controllable and, thanks to their silent, environmentally friendly operation, approved for use even in nature preserves. At their Hanover Fair booth SFC presents two different all-in-one power solutions:
For stationary off-grid and stand-alone applications, SFC presents new standardized installation systems for 19-inch industrial racks. This new application facilitates integration of the EFOY Pro fuel cells in standard cabinets and ensures easy retrofitting in existing installations. All users need to do to ensure weeks and months of autonomous operation of their electric devices away from the grid is simply place the cabinet in the field. Compared to batteries alone the SFC cabinet power solution multiplies the unattended run times of the devices many times over, offering decisive logistic and cost advantages and allowing for more efficient planning and operation.
In mobile off-grid applications operators of electrical devices can use the convenient EFOY ProCube. This lightweight and maintenance-free off-grid power solution can be easily transported by one person and is always ready for use without requiring adaptation or installation. The EFOY ProCube enables weatherproof outdoor operation of the EFOY Pro series fuel cells in any weather and season, if required even underground.
“With our new complete solutions we have taken another important step towards standardization of our hybrid systems, we solve all interface issues of our customers and increase the easy compatibility with established installation scenarios”, says Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC.
SFC presents the EFOY and EFOY Pro fuel cells at Hanover Fair in hall 27, booth J66. Here visitors will also get information on the SFC’s extended fuel cell portfolio with new, even more powerful fuel cells and on the new e-mobility concepts with SFC fuel cells. In addition, SFC again presents several commercializable electrical vehicles with SFC fuel cells at the fuel cell exhibit’s Ride & Drive area outside hall 27. Of course, these vehicles are available for test rides to demonstrate the principle’s everyday suitability. What makes the SFC fuel cell vehicles so special: thanks to the on-board power generation they do not have to be recharged at a socket and feature an unsurpassed reach.
