Leading provider of hydrogen and methanol fuel cells solutions SFC Energy has received a significant order from Fuel Cell Systems Ltd. (FCSL) following Hannover Messe 2024 event. The latter has signed a new framework contract totalling €4 million for the delivery of 'EFOY'-branded methanol fuel cells and accessories. 

The significant increase in order value reflects the continued growth in demand for low-emission or emission-free fuel cell solutions from SFC Energy, according to the company that delivers EFOY-branded direct methanol and hydrogen fuel cells for stationary, portable and mobile hybrid power applications. 

Additionally, an intensification of cooperation and business expansion in the hydrogen and hydrogen fuel cell sector has also been agreed upon. Both companies have been very active in this field for years with growing success and plan to combine their expertise in hydrogen fuel cells and hydrogen supply. EFOY's hydrogen fuel cells are based on PEM (polymer electrolyte membrane) technology.

Lee Juby, CEO of FCSL, commented on the deal, "We, and more importantly our customers, continue to be impressed by the EFOY fuel cell technology from SFC Energy. The products are flexible, reliable and offer an environmentally friendly solution for off-grid power needs. We look forward to continued growth in partnership with SFC Energy, as customer demand for their innovative products increases."

FCSL operates in the United Kingdom and recently in the Netherlands as a distributor and project developer for fuel cell solutions for decentralized power generation in various applications. 

With a partnership extending for more than 15 years, FCSL has evolved into not only a key customer and distribution partner for SFC, but also a brand ambassador and driver of ideas for product development and optimization through intensive contact with end users, according to SFC Energy. 

"The significantly expanded order volume from Fuel Cell Systems confirms the increasing need for sustainable, emission-free energy generation solutions", Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy AG. 

"Fuel cells are an established and efficient way to achieve this goal. In our partnership with FCSL we have built a leading market position in the UK – together we stand for the highest product quality, reliability and strict customer orientation – striving to set standards in the industry", he added. 

EFOY fuel cells are based on 'Direct Methanol Fuel Cell' (DMFC) technology. They convert chemical energy into electrical energy without interim stages and without much loss of efficiency. The methanol in the fuel cartridge is supplemented by oxygen from the air, and is used to produce electricity with little CO2 emissions.
