On-board power supply

SFC fuel cells are used in various vehicle applications, for example for surveillance missions and covert operations. These systems provide a reliable power supply to electronic devices in emergency, command and multipurpose vehicles. Their silent operation minimises the risk of being detected based on the sound and heat signature.

Military vehicles

The military hardened SFC EMILY fuel cell is particularly well-suited for military requirements, which was developed and tested for operation under extreme conditions. The robust solution can also easily be used in uneven terrain for silent watch missions and is used by many international defence organisations.

Government vehicles

The EFOY Pro fuel cell is primarily used in blue light organisations, for example for the vehicle fleet of the German Federal Office for Goods Transport. The EFOY Pro fuel cells ensure on-board power supply during parking checks. Numerous federal and law enforcement agencies across Europe and North America use EFOY Pro fuel cells as a mobile power supply for office facilities and undercover surveillance.

EFOY Pro

Remote power supply

SFC fuel cells operate mobile command posts as remote power supplies. They supply observation and telecommunication equipment and ensure communication and the maintenance of radio contact – day and night and in any weather. In addition, they can be used for temporarily set up camps, for example, for refugees and provide immediate and fully automatic power there just like from a wall socket.

Stationary power supply

SFC fuel cells supply stationary applications with power completely autonomously and without user intervention, usually for weeks. EFOY Pro Fuel cells are frequently used in video surveillance, for example, by the police and coast guard in Singapore. JUPITER Fuel cells are already in use in many locations to provide backup power for critical infrastructures. The fuel cell modules switch on completely automatically and take over the load no later than 20 seconds after the power fails. Defence organisations also use EFOY Pro fuel cells for the decentralised emergency power supply of the command centre in hazardous situations in order to maintain the radio network.

Portable power supply

SFC JENNY fuel cells are especially used for reconnaissance missions due to the significant weight savings of up to 80 % and are used, for example, by special forces and infantry. The endurance is significantly increased and the duration of use is extended.

Covert power supply

Audio and video surveillance systems are used to protect and monitor infrastructures, for border control, for security during events and to watch animals and plants in the wild. They are often installed and operated covertly. EFOY Pro fuel cells and energy solutions reliably provide off-grid power without any user intervention for weeks on end. Quiet and, if necessary, concealed and vandalism-proof. They are silent in use and can be integrated into an inconspicuous environment unnoticed.

Energy solutions

Mobile power supply

The mobile energy solutions from SFC Energy are ideal for outdoors applications. They are immediately ready for use at any time, in any place and in any weather. That means they are particularly well suited for use in emergency response situations and can be used by disaster management authorities, for example, to operate lighting or communication systems.

Questions and answers about
application areas

Are SFC fuel cells suitable for on-board power supply?

Yes, for surveillance missions and covert operations, SFC Energy supplies fuel cells for vehicle integration. These systems provide a reliable power supply to electronic devices in emergency, command and multipurpose vehicles. Their silent operation minimises the risk of being detected based on the sound and heat signature. These fuel cells are available as military ruggedised (SFC EMILY 3000) as well as industrial devices (EFOY Pro) for official use.

Are SFC fuel cells suitable for undercover operations?

Yes, semi-stationary and stationary surveillance systems are often used where there is no mains connection. Sometimes, surveillance systems must be used covertly. This poses a challenge to the self-sufficiency of a power supply. SFC offers a power supply for stationary and undercover use of surveillance applications and law enforcement authorities. SFC fuel cells reliably supply power for weeks without a mains connection or the need for user intervention – silent and, if required, undercover, vandalism-proof and even for burying.

What are the benefits of fuel cells for vehicle-based applications?

The benefits at a glance:

  • Weight reduction
  • Noise reduction
  • Smaller footprint
  • Considerably reduced operating costs
  • Reduced particle emissions
  • Vehicle is charged directly at the place of use
  • No garage or charging equipment required
What are the benefits of fuel cells in military applications?

An essential factor is the quiet operation of the solutions virtually without detectable signatures. In addition, fuel cells are very user friendly and safe to handle. They are simple plug-and-play solutions.

How can fuel cells be used for special units?

Special and task forces require a portable power supply to dependably provide their technical equipment with power throughout the full term of their deployment. Until now, this has involved a tremendous carrying weight and major logistical efforts. With the SFC energy network consisting of the SFC JENNY 600S and the SFC Power Manager, a weight savings of up to 80 % is achieved on a 72-hour deployment.
