DGAP-News SFC Energy receives largest single order - Toyota Tsusho orders 135 EFOY Pro fuel cells for smart traffic applications in Japan - Seite 2
Safety naturally also plays an important role for qualified staff during the installation and maintenance of the systems. The advantage becomes even more evident when the systems are serviced. No more need for laborious and dangerous replacement of heavy batteries during flowing traffic. In overall longer service intervals than with the previous solution, only the M10 fuel cartridge with a weight of nine kilograms now needs to be replaced. Using the EFOY Pro fuel cell in traffic control systems thus brings workplace safety to a new level by saving time and weight.
Another advantage of the EFOY Pro fuel cell is its high charging capacity. Combined with an M10 fuel cartridge it reaches 830 ampere hours (Ah). The hybrid solution used so far, consisting of a solar panel and two batteries, has a total capacity of 520 Ah of which only 260 Ah can be used. It is important to note that the use of solar panels did not guarantee a permanent energy supply.
EFOY Pro fuel cells are powerful, low-maintenance and low-wear, while operating extremely quietly and virtually emission-free. At the same time, their components are 95 percent recyclable.
"If we want to rethink mobility, the discussion must not be limited only to drive systems. Mobility has many aspects. We lead sustainable concepts to success by first creating the infrastructure. In the future, this includes both the nationwide 5G mobile radio standard as the basis for autonomous driving and smart traffic control technology for reduced downtimes. Once again, the fuel cell is proving its worth as a key technology for a sustainable energy supply that truly benefits everyone. We are therefore very glad to be able to demonstrate with our Japanese partner the diverse potential of our EFOY fuel cells. We want to build on this great success and promote the culture of innovation with green technology," says Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy AG.
"We are very glad about this enriching cooperation with SFC Energy. The joint success in gaining a new customer for sustainable fuel cell technology confirms our belief that we can further expand our market position in sustainable technologies. Just like SFC Energy, Toyota Tsusho Corporation is focused on green technologies. This order is a big step towards expanding our smart traffic control technology business. In this way, we will contribute to a carbon-free society," says Futoshi Horisaki COO of Toyota Tsusho Corporation Global Parts and Logistics Divisions.
