12 Jul 2013

SFC Mastervolt

Direct methanol fuel cell developer, SFC Energy AG, has entered into cooperation with Mastervolt International BV to offer two new energy solutions for the marine and RV markets. The first solution integrates an EFOY COMFORT 140 fuel cell generator with a Mastervolt Mass Combi 12V/2000W-100 and a 200 Ah gel battery. The second solution combines the EFOY COMFORT 210 with a Mastervolt Mass Combi 12V/2000W-100 and the latest lithium Ion Ultra 5KWh battery.

These combinations offer increased system efficiency by means of intelligent management of the power generated by both a fuel cell and PV panels. The new integrated solution extends the range of the Mastervolt battery providing greater autonomy before recharging is needed.

Hans van Nikkelen Kuijper, CEO of Mastervolt International said: “Silent, reliable and environmentally friendly power away from the grid – anywhere and anytime - has just become even more convenient for marine and RV owners in Europe”

Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy added: “In the cooperation with market leader Mastervolt we are bringing the proven power generation expertise of SFC Energy into Mastervolt’s high quality electro technical solutions for maritime and automotive applications”.

As a next step in their cooperation, SFC Energy and Mastervolt are planning an additional innovative off-grid power solution integrating SFC Energy’s EFOY Pro fuel cell generator with Mastervolt’s battery solutions for professional and industrial applications.
