SFC Energy signs framework contract for the delivery of hydrogen fuel cells for radio tower sites

First hydrogen fuel cell order for SFC Energy. +++ Hydrogen fuel cells by SFC Energy and adKor deliver safe emergency back-up power to radio tower sites. +++ Framework contract will run until 2021. Expected total order volume: approx. EUR 1.8 to 5.3 million.

Brunnthal/Munich, Germany, November 18, 2019 – SFC Energy AG (F3C:DE, ISIN: DE0007568578), a leading provider of hybrid power solutions to the stationary and mobile power generation markets, has received a framework contract from cooperation partner adKor GmbH, Wildau, Germany, for the delivery of hydrogen fuel cells for radio tower sites in several federal states of Germany. The framework contract runs until the end of 2021 and has a total order volume of approx. EUR 1.8 to 5.3 million, depending on installation and commissioning by the federal states.

Prior to this, adKor GmbH, together with their system partners, had won tenders for emergency backup power equipment of over 400 radio tower sites with hydrogen fuel cells in different federal states. For these radio tower site projects SFC Energy delivers the hydrogen fuel cell modules to adKor GmbH as a subcontractor.

SFC Energy has over 15 years of experience in industrial serial production of fuel cells for a wide range of demanding applications requiring reliable 24/7 operation, often in extremely challenging environmental conditions.

At critical radio tower sites, operators have to ensure a minimum of 72 hours power autonomy for their radio systems at any time, to safeguard the radio communication of critical users during power black outs.

Hydrogen fuel cells offer many advantages over other emergency back-up power solutions: They feature high availability and operational capability at low operational cost and – other than for example Diesel generators – silent operation, free of any emissions or particulate matter.

"The fact that several federal states of Germany have opted for our hydrogen fuel cells to provide reliable emergency back-up power to their critical infrastructures clearly proves the attractiveness of this environmentally friendly, innovative technology", says Hartmut Kordus, Managing Director of adKor GmbH.

"Looking forward, there are plans to equip up to 1,500 radio tower sites all across Germany. This first nationwide program demonstrates the increasing importance of hydrogen fuel cells as a valid and reliable alternative to conventional Diesel generators to provide power to critical infrastructures. We see major potential for them as power and back-up power sources also in many other industrial applications, for example rail and transport monitoring, data centers and transformer stations, and telecommunication equipment", says Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy.
