SFC Energy receives German Federal Army order for the extension of their portable MKEV energy supply

Brunnthal/Munich, (PresseBox) - .
  • German Federal Army orders an extension of the MKEV 100 system with additional features for increased flexibility and power autonomy.
  • MKEV 100 features four times the power of MKEV 25, a fuel cell system already introduced at the Federal Army.
SFC Energy AG (F3C:DE, ISIN: DE0007568578), a leading provider of hybrid power solutions to the stationary and mobile power generation markets, announces the receipt of an order by the German Federal Army for an extension of the portable MKEV 100 (German: Mobile Kleinstenergieversorgung 100) power supply. The new demonstrator prototype significantly increases energy flexibility and autonomy with an external tank and improved communication functions. The total order amount is EUR 160,000.

With 100 W continuous power the new power supply features four times the performance of SFC Energy’s MKEV 25, which the Federal Army already uses in their missions. As in all fully integrated SFC power solutions, the integrated hybrid battery covers peak power demands.

The new functional demonstrator comes with two portable JENNY fuel cells and SFC Energy’s innovative Power Management. Depending on their individual power demands, users can chose between JENNY 1200 and JENNY 600S fuel cell.

MKEV 100 is housed in a weatherproof case and can also be used underground in undercover missions. Different fuel cartridge sizes can be used with an additional external cartridge connector. This set-up ensures autonomous power availability up to several weeks in a wide variety of mission scenarios.

Users can monitor and control their energy source by means of a further improved data interface.

“This new development order builds on the MKEV 25 system’s positive track record in use at the Federal Army, and has further developed a first MKEV 100 prototype. The growing interest in our mobile energy supply solutions proves the benefits of our direct methanol fuel cell technology in mobile, stationary and vehicle based defense applications”, says Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy AG. “From many years of cooperation with defense organizations and from interaction with their energy experts we know exactly what they need in the field. Building on that expertise we are consistently increasing the performance and user flexibility of our systems as reliable off-grid power sources for new applications, higher power requirements and longer missions.“

Numerous international defense organizations use SFC Energy fuel cell products. SFC fuel cell and accessory products carry a NATO stock number.
