Brunnthal/Munich, Germany, August 30, 2018 – Simark Controls Ltd., a subsidiary of SFC Energy (F3C: DE0007568578), leading provider of hybrid power solutions to the stationary and mobile power generation markets, has received a new follow up order for fully integrated Variable Frequency Drive systems (VFDs) from an existing customer in the Alberta oil sands.
