Over 50 % of this year’s Minitransat boats use EFOY COMFORT fuel cell

The EFOY COMFORT fuel cell of SFC Energy AG, a leading provider of hybrid power solutions to the stationary and mobile power generation markets, is made for winners. In this year’s Minitransat regatta over 50 % of the registered boats have a fuel cell on board: 45 of the 84 registered boats use the popular power generator for providing environmentally friendly power to critical communication and navigation equipment and other devices on board, on demand and without any user intervention.

“In single-handed sailing, any device the skipper does not have to operate and every kg less means a competitive edge”, says Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy. “Our fuel cell is connected to the battery that supplies power to the devices. The fuel cell continuously monitors the battery’s charge state and recharges it on demand, fully automatically. The skipper does not have to do a thing, and yet he can always be sure that his devices will be reliably powered at any time.”

EFOY COMFORT on board of a World Record

Congratulations to Mikael Ryking and his co-skipper Irina Gracheva for their great achievement. The two monohull sailors sailed within 13 days, 5 hours and 19 minutes from Bermuda to Plymouth (2870 miles) with the EFOY COMFORT on board. World record!

"We are very pleased with the EFOY fuel cell. It simply runs smooth and silently and we didn't need to charge our batteries at any time with the diesel engine during the 2870 nautical miles passage that took us 13 days to complete. We had some seriously challenging weather with 45 knots of wind on average for three days in a row. The sea grows wild and we were knocked down with mast and sails in the sea at two occasions. But the EFOY fuel cell continued as before to deliver power to the onboard electronics. Amazing! This is part of the future.” Mikael Ryking, skipper of Talanta
