Press Release | SFC Energy signs EFOY business partnership agreement with Axsera Inc. for telecommunication applications across North America

Brunnthal/Munich, Germany, November 25, 2019 – Simark Controls Ltd., a subsidiary of SFC Energy (F3C:DE, ISIN: DE0007568578), a leading provider of hybrid power solutions to the stationary and mobile power generation markets, has signed a partnership agreement with Axsera Inc., Montreal, Canada, for the commercialization of EFOY Pro fuel cell solutions for telecommunication applications across North America.

Axsera, a trusted provider of technical services, telecommunications and remote power solutions with a vast industry network, will sell EFOY Pro solutions to provide highly reliable, fully autonomous power to critical off-grid telecommunications equipment in Canada and the U.S.

The EFOY Pro solutions are used to ensure reliable operation of remote devices in any season and weather. In the context of the partnership agreement, Simark will integrate the robust EFOY Pro fuel cells into a wide variety of turnkey autonomous, fully automatic and highly reliable EFOY Pro solutions for Axsera’s customers.

“Telecommunications equipment must operate reliably 24/7. This requires uninterrupted power availability. In the past, operators had to make tremendous logistics efforts and major investments to ensure that their equipment would never run out of power", says Mike Di Palma, Vice President of Sales at Axsera Inc. "EFOY Pro solutions free our customers from this hassle. They are fully autonomous and weather-independent, and they provide up to 12 months of power autonomy, saving the operators expensive site visits for replacing batteries or maintaining generators. And there is another feature driving our customers’ interest: The EFOY Pro solutions are environmentally friendly. This offers major benefits in remote and protected areas.“

"Our EFOY Pro solutions are fast becoming a gold standard for reliable off-grid power, in various vertical markets e.g. security, oil & gas and telecommunications, where power reliability is critical", says Martin Curtis, Managing Director of Simark Controls and President Oil & Gas of SFC Energy. “There are three reasons for their growing success: They are utterly flexible and can be customized and hybridized for 100% power reliability in even the most demanding application requirements. They are fully autonomous over long periods of time, enabling significant cost and logistics savings. And they feature ultimate environmental friendliness, helping operators meet environmental laws and regulations.”
