SFC Energy equips mobile transmission towers of Deutsche Telekom AG with hydrogen fuel cells

Brunnthal/Munich, 30 August 2023 – For the first time, a mobile hydrogen fuel cell by SFC Energy was used as a power source of temporary mobile communication during a music festival. At the Nibirii electronic music festival in Düren, Germany, Deutsche Telekom AG tested the H2Genset by SFC Energy (F3C:DE, ISIN: DE0007568578), a leading supplier of hydrogen and methanol fuel cells for stationary and mobile hybrid power solutions, as an environmentally friendly power supply for its mobile transmission tower.

At the Nibirii Festival, Deutsche Telekom powered a mobile base station 100 percent with green hydrogen in live operation for the first time. These transmitter masts can be used independently of a stationary power supply, for example at festivals, outdoor events and trade fairs as well as in disaster areas.

The mobile trailer solution H₂Genset by SFC Energy ensured the reliable power supply of the transmission tower. The H₂Genset by SFC Energy is an emission-free and self-sufficient power generator that is ideally suited for areas without access to the conventional power grid and can call up a peak power of up to 20 kW. This ensured stable, mobile communication in the 5G and LTE standards for the approximately 30,000 visitors to the festival. With the environmentally friendly energy solution, Deutsche Telekom replaced a diesel generator that consumes 35 to 40 liters of fuel per day.

"We are pleased that together with Deutsche Telekom AG we were able to provide the fans of the Nibirii Festival with a stable mobile phone connection with sustainable energy supply. The H₂Genset has already proven its performance in a wide range of industries and has now also been able to convince in the supply of temporarily installed mobile phone masts. The fuel cell, which runs on green hydrogen, generates electricity in a reliable and environmentally friendly way – unlike the diesel generator, it does not pollute people or the environment," says Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy AG.
