FUEL CELL SYSTEMS WORKS WITH WIRELESS CCTV LTD TO DELIVER A TOTALLY AUTONOMOUS CCTV TOWER, OFFERING UNINTERRUPTED POWER FOR UP TO 8 WEEKS
Wireless CCTV Ltd is a manufacturer and supplier of rapid deployment CCTV towers which provide complete security for remote sites and compounds. These sites are typically the location of short to medium term construction projects which require an effective form of security around the clock.
Remote sites often don’t have mains power, meaning WCCTV’s systems could only be powered by generators and/or long run batteries. Generators are not only noisy, but produce significant carbon emissions. Batteries offer a quiet solution, but when used alone, require regular charging or replacement.
Wireless CCTV decided to utilise SFC EFOY Pro fuel cells from Fuel Cell Systems to deliver a reliable solution offering uninterrupted power for up to 8 weeks.
Utilising a single EFOY Pro unit in a CCTV tower means reduced site visits for engineers to refuel and more round the clock security for clients. It also broadens the spectrum of the business opportunities available to Wireless CCTV who can provide security in the most remote locations.
The fuel cells are used in hybrid operation with batteries and the system offers both long runtimes and multiple health and safety benefits from an installation, storage and refuelling perspective.
Daniel del Soldato from Wireless CCTV commented “EFOY Pro allows us to be more flexible in the way we provide our complete site security solutions. We are able to install our Rapid Deployment CCTV Towers into the most remote locations regardless of existing infrastructure, meaning that more people are able to benefit from the peace of mind and cost savings that our systems deliver. EFOY Pro has helped us change the way we do business.”
A fuel cell solution offers proactive site protection and monitoring and for this type of application can be up to 75% cheaper than manned guarding.
