Brunnthal/Munich, Germany — SFC Energy AG (F3C:DE, ISIN: DE0007568578), a leading supplier of hydrogen and methanol fuel cells for stationary and mobile hybrid power solutions, presents a new portfolio of EFOY Pro energy solutions following the fifth generation of the EFOY Pro fuel cell.

With the new generation of compatible systems, SFC Energy serves the highest requirements of professional users. These include the EFOY ProCabinet, the EFOY ProTrailer and other mobile and stationary energy solutions. The systems provide the EFOY Pro fuel cell with even more flexibility and significantly increase the application possibilities – especially in areas without access to the conventional power grid and even in the most adverse weather conditions such as at the North Pole.

The new and once again improved EFOY ProCabinet is a robust outdoor cabinet solution for self-sufficient, stationary power supply with EFOY Pro fuel cells. It offers space for up to two EFOY Pro fuel cells as well as one or more fuel cartridges and batteries, depending on the application. As usual, the EFOY ProCabinet can be adapted to the customer’s individual needs.

In combination with other enclosure solutions, the EFOY Pro fuel cell works reliably and generates environmentally friendly electricity at outdoor temperatures of – 40 °C and + 50 °C. During the year-long MOSAiC expedition in the central Arctic, the complete energy solution already proved its potential: with the help of the EFOY Pro system, the researchers were able to carry out measurements on the energy transfer between the atmosphere and the ice.

The new EFOY ProTrailer is housed in an insulated NEMA 3R enclosure and features a vertical mast and a fixed solar mount. The solution provides tank autonomy of up to 12 months. This makes the EFOY ProTrailer the perfect solution for short- or long-term operations in imponderable terrain far from the conventional power grid.

At the same time, SFC Energy makes it easier for users to operate and monitor the individual EFOY Pro sites with the EFOY Cloud. The application provides secure and reliable remote access to each individual unit. This facilitates monitoring and reduces maintenance to an absolute minimum. Users have access to the application via laptop, tablet or smartphone and all important parameters are directly in view. SFC Energy developed the EFOY Cloud close to the customers’ needs. Further IoT applications can be easily integrated. With the further developed EFOY Pro complete energy solutions, SFC Energy offers noticeable added value for all professional users. In addition to the EFOY Pro generation, the EFOY Jupiter, a powerful hydrogen fuel cell for power ranges from 2.5 to 50 kW, is part of the SFC Energy portfolio.

“We have been present in Canada for more than ten years with fuel cell solutions for extreme conditions and therefore have a deep knowledge of our customers’ needs. Coupled with our expertise in environmentally friendly hydrogen and methanol fuel cells, we are now introducing the new generation of complete energy solutions to the market. In this way, we help our customers to reduce their CO2 footprint and make an important contribution to the decarbonisation of industrial applications. In the future, the demand for environmentally friendly and decentralised power generators will increase. We see a great opportunity for further growth here and already offer mature systems on an industrial scale with the EFOY Pro fuel cell and EFOY Pro complete solutions,” says Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy AG.
