SFC Energy receives low single-digit million euro order for portable SFC energy supply system highly mobile from the Swiss Federal Office for Defence Procurement armasuisse

Brunnthal/Munich, Germany, September 01, 2021 – SFC Energy AG (F3C:DE, ISIN: DE0007568578), a leading supplier of hydrogen and methanol fuel cells for stationary and mobile hybrid power solutions, has received an order for a portable power supply system for the Swiss Defence Forces. The order volume amounts to a low single-digit million euro range and is revenue-effective in 2021.
The SFC energy network highly mobile provides reliable and permanent power supply for the terminal equipment of defence forces in action. This includes various systems such as radios, navigation devices, night vision devices, laser rangefinders, portable computers and PDAs – both stationary and portable.
Specially adapted to the high requirements of defence forces in action, the SFC power network is a highly efficient and flexible solution. It consists of the SFC fuel cell types JENNY 600S, JENNY 1200, EMILY 3000, the SFC Power Manager 3G, a powerful hybrid battery, a foldable solar panel, a methanol transfer unit as well as various cable connections. Methanol can be used as a fuel for all SFC fuel cell products in the network and enables a highly synergetic application concept.
In the field, the SFC power network reduces the load of the soldiers by up to 80 percent compared to conventional power supply solutions. The SFC Powermanager, an intelligent voltage converter, allows soldiers to power almost any device from available power sources such as fuel cells, solar panels or batteries. The portable EMILY fuel cell takes over the on-board power supply in and on the vehicle. At the same time, it is suitable for numerous other mobile and stationary applications.
The powerful solutions of the SFC power network are highly mobile, air-transportable and significantly reduce weight compared to conventional systems, and provide environmentally friendly power to a wide range of terminal equipment. This makes them the perfect solution for the Swiss defense forces, which can operate self-sufficiently from the conventional power grid for many days to several weeks during exercises in Switzerland or the country of deployment.
“We would like to thank the Swiss Federal Office for Defence Procurement armasuisse and the responsible armed forces for the many years of cooperation and the great trust expressed through this commissioning. We look forward to further long-term cooperation. The order confirms our view that fuel cells increase the flexibility of soldiers in the field and contribute to the overall security of missions,” says Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy AG.
