SFC Energy AG, a leading provider of hybrid power solutions to the stationary and mobile power generation markets, has delivered a major order of SFC Energy’s portable JENNY fuel cells to an international defense organization. The delivery, which has a total value of over EUR 1 million, is reported in 2019.
“This is already the second significant batch of JENNYs 1200 that we have sold and delivered to this international defense organization,” says Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy. “The fuel cells are used in multi-day missions and help the soldiers save up to 80 % of carry-along weight. Soldier safety and operability in the field depend upon the reliable availability of off-grid power. Our fuel cells are a lightweight, silent, clean and almost non-detectable solution.”
The portable JENNY 1200 fuel cell with a nominal power of 50 W builds on SFC Energy’s award-winning DMFC (direct methanol fuel cell) technology for defense and security applications. Decisive advantages of the system are no spare batteries to be carried by soldiers, fully automatic clean battery recharge, no noise & maintenance, almost no detectable heat signature; and ultimately lower total cost of ownership.
JENNY 1200 uses pure methanol as fuel, offering market-leading energy density and weight savings over fuel cell technologies with conventional methanol/water blends.
Like all SFC Energy’s power generation and distribution products for defense applications, the JENNY 1200 integrates seamlessly into the existing SFC defense product family and into all SFC energy networks and power solutions.
Numerous international NATO and PfP defense organizations use SFC Energy fuel cell products. SFC fuel cell and accessory products carry a NATO stock number and are approved for air transport according to UN3473.
