SFC Energy: Canadian subsidiary Simark Controls partners with KNS Communications for powering high performance wireless networks
- KNS Communications employs EFOY Pro fuel cells in their mining, oil and gas, agriculture, public safety, utilities, higher education and government applications.
- Fuel cells deliver reliable off-grid hybrid power in trailer, mobile and stationary solutions.
Brunnthal/Munich, Germany, June 19, 2017 - Simark Controls Ltd., a subsidiary of SFC Energy, leading provider of hybrid power solutions to the stationary and mobile power generation markets, partners with KNS Communications, Denver, CO, USA for the distribution of SFC Energy's EFOY Pro fuel cells in critical off grid applications.
KNS Communications use the EFOY Pro fuel cells as an off-grid power source for engineered, high performance, outdoor wireless networks in the most demanding mining, oil and gas, agriculture, public safety, utilities, higher education and government communication environments. The fuel cells are hybridized with solar to ensure ultimate reliability: When solar is unable to deliver enough power, the fuel cell automatically switches on and compensates for the shortfall in energy ensuring the battery bank always remains sufficiently charged to provide power for the off-grid equipment. Large oversized solar arrays and battery banks are avoided and the reliability of the system is increased significantly with years of fuel autonomy versus the traditional few days of battery autonomy.
"With their green footprint, minimal fuel consumption, fully autonomous operation and extreme weather capabilities EFOY Pro fuel cells are the best remote power solutions on the market", says Don Leyn, Director of Business Development at KNS Communications. "We offer them in customized trailer based and stationary communication system solutions."
"We are excited to partner with KNS Communications", says Derek L'Hirondelle, VP Instrumentation, Automation & Energy at Simark Controls. "Our combined offer of KNS Communications' high performance wireless network expertise and the EFOY Pro fuel cells' ultimate power reliability brings optimum efficiency, flexibility and convenience to users of off-grid communication systems all over Canada and the U.S."
