The energy solution for the German Bundeswehr is based on the portable Jenny fuel cell, which SFC Smart Fuel Cell has been selling as a mobile off-grid soldier power source for more than a year. Units have been deployed in a variety of international defense missions worldwide.
In combination with the SFC Power Manager, an intelligent converter which assures optimal operation of available power sources, the Jenny fuel cell system offers a reliable energy network for power supply in the field. The order is worth more than €220,000 (US$270,000), with the systems being delivered through the latter part of 2010.
The portable Jenny direct methanol fuel cell by SFC Smart Fuel Cell is a small, lightweight (less than 2 kg) power generator for soldiers and applications in the field. It can either be worn directly on the body in a belt, or operate unmanned devices in the field.
