SFC Energy launches new EMILY 3000 for vehicle based defense applications

On the occasion of the annual Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC) SFC Energy AG, technology and market leader for portable, mobile, and off-grid power generation and distribution, has launched the new EMILY 3000 fuel cell generator for vehicle based defense applications.

EMILY 3000 was developed based upon the successful application experience with SFC Energy’s fully fielded EMILY 2200 fuel cell generator. It provides another power increase of 35 percent to a maximum of 125 Watt nominal power, representing a charging capacity of approximately 3,000 Watt hours per day. EMILY 3000 implements user experience and requests and features advanced power management for even more application flexibility. Like its predecessor, EMILY 3000 has been qualified according to Mil Std. and VG97010-2 in official military tests. EMILY 3000 has the same size, form factor and nearly the same weight as EMILY 2200.The new fuel cell generator will replace EMILY 2200 effective end of 2013.

EMILY 3000’s most prominent feature is its new charging flexibility. In addition to conventional batteries, the fully ruggedized fuel cell generator also charges modern lithium ion and lithium polymer batteries. It enables a broad range of important defense and security applications. The silent, fully automatic power source supplies electrical energy for equipment on board of military vehicles, e.g. radio and other communication systems, night vision and navigation devices, or computers. In connection with SFC Energy’s popular SFC Power Manger 3G EMILY 3000 also serves as reliable field charger for up to four batteries simultaneously.

Like all SFC fuel cell generators EMILY 3000 is silent, completely weather-independent and maintenance free, providing ultimate off-grid power reliability and convenience on and off the vehicle. In operation, it produces no harmful emissions, no detectable vibration or heat, which makes it an ideal power solution in covert and tactical power supply scenarios. Use of the fuel cell generator enables long system autonomy away from the grid in any climate or terrain.

“The launch of EMILY 3000 reflects SFC Energy’s application driven development work and marks another technological milestone for our Company”, says Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy. “It integrates the learnings from our fielded EMILY fuel cells in a yet more convenient and more powerful model.”
