New UK partner ZeroAlpha Solutions successfully trials SFC Energy’s fuel cells with UK Ministry of Defence
Brunnthal/Munich, Germany, May 4, 2017 – SFC Energy, a leading provider of hybrid power solutions to the stationary and mobile power generation markets, announces an exclusive new defense industry sales partnership with ZeroAlpha Solutions Ltd., Cardiff, UK, a leading supplier of networking hardware, software and sustainable power solutions to the UK and European defense and security markets.
With their excellent track record as a communications and power systems integrator for the UK defense and security industry, ZeroAlpha Solutions will sell and customize SFC Energy’s portfolio of defence and security power products to meet the specific off-grid power requirements of UK customers in those industries. In partnership with ZeroAlpha Solutions, SFC’s range of defense products were selected to undergo extensive field trials by the UK MoD under both the Army Warfighting Experiment and Information Warrior exercises. With an objective of providing sustainable and tactical power at the tactical edge the fuel cells successfully provided extended silent watch capability and enhanced mission endurance to both vehicle and dismounted applications.
“SFC Energy’s fuel cells have successfully demonstrated a true game changing capability to the UK MoD during arduous testing by the Army, Royal Navy and Royal Marine”, says Stewart Burton, Managing Director of ZeroAlpha Solutions. “This technology has clearly shown that it is more than fit for purpose in extending the operational duration of complex vehicle mission systems and dismounted soldiers to equal measures, providing them with a key tactical advantage in the field while reducing their dependency on less efficient legacy power options that fall short of meeting the increasing power demand of our Armed Forces.”
“Our partnership with ZeroAlpha Solutions brings our award-winning technology and our proven defense and security portfolio now also to customers in the UK”, says Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy AG. “We see a growing need for reliable off-grid and back-up power for mobile, stationary, and vehicle based applications alike. ZeroAlpha’s excellent industry network will help us leverage that demand in the UK.”
