SFC Energy AG (F3C:DE), a provider of hybrid power solutions to the stationary and mobile power generation markets, announced that it will partner with Gemeco Marine Accessories in Lake City, S.C., to serve as a marine distributor for the EFOY COMFORT fuel cells in the United States.
GEMECO has been a specialist in marine products since 1980, serving marine electronics dealers, boatbuilders and other marine industry professionals. The company is a wholesale distributor of marine products and will sell the full range of EFOY COMFORT fuel cells and fuel cartridges to customers in the Eastern and Midwest regions of the United States.
“Our appointment of Gemeco Marine Accessories as a U.S. distributor will help introduce and accelerate the adoption of an innovative solution to onboard power generation,” said Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy. “Widely recognized as marine technology experts dedicated to representing high quality manufacturers, Gemeco is an ideal partner to help us grow our brand in the U.S. market.”
SFC Energy’s EFOY fuel cells have been providing off-grid power to leisure applications since 2005. The silent, environmentally friendly fuel cells are connected to the boat’s battery and provide power on demand and fully automatically, without the considerable noise or exhaust of a generator. EFOY COMFORT will be available in several power classes to fulfill different energy needs.
“We pride ourselves on delivering the most innovative products to our marine customers,” said Peter Braffitt, general manager, GEMECO. Braffitt added, “EFOY fuel cells are a major breakthrough technology offering boaters a silent, totally automatic eco-friendly charging solution. We look forward to building the EFOY brand in the U.S. and to a new partnership with SFC Energy, an award-winning manufacturer and worldwide leader of fuel cell technology.”
