New fuel tank size MT60 for even longer autonomy

SFC Energy has added a new 60 l tank to their EFOY fuel cartridge portfolio. The new tank features SFC Energy’s proprietary security valve. The tank was specifically developed for off-grid and back-up industry applications.

“We created this fuel tank specifically for customers who require even longer autonomy for their off-grid systems”, says Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy. “Many applications in the oil & gas, off-shore, wind industry and many security and surveillance systems have to work reliably over 6 to 12 months without a single user intervention. The MT60 is an important prerequisite for this.”
