SFC Energy announced the deployment of the 1,000th EFOY Pro fuel cell as reliable off-grid power supply for public health and safety infrastructures in Singapore on 25 March.
The 1,000th EFOY Pro is part of a large batch of fuel cells and cartridges purchased by SFC Partner Oneberry Technologies. In order to fulfill Singapore’s increasing demand in public health infrastructure, an order for an additional €1.4 million in fuel cells and cartridges was placed and delivered in the first quarter.
Oneberry Technologies is an established security and surveillance solutions provider and has been SFC Energy’s partner since 2010. The company, a leader in remote surveillance solutions in Singapore, has deployed over 1,500 virtual guards in the city. EFOY Pro fuel cells are used in Oneberry solutions in Singapore, amongst them mobile (robot-based) and off-grid surveillance, flood monitoring systems and other applications in which power reliability is critical for public health and safety infrastructure. Oneberry’s MobiCam, a rapid deployment mobile surveillance solution enabled with intelligent cameras, uses the fuel cell for very long, unattended off-grid operations.
“We are currently seeing a rapidly growing demand for all our public safety and health systems,” says Ken Pereira, CEO of Oneberry Technologies. “We have now marked the deployment of the 1,000th EFOY Pro fuel cell and we expect demand in [the] autonomous systems segment with EFOY Pro fuel cell to grow by another 30% in 2020.”
“We are pleased to see that our fuel cells are contributing to combat and control of COVID-19. SFC and Oneberry are jointly exploring deployment of such effective ‘Contactless Situation Awareness’ robot systems in Europe,” adds Dr Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy.
