EFOY partner: Fuel Cell Systems
Client: Wireless CCTV Ltd., Rochdale (UK)
WCCTV is a manufacturer and supplier of rapid deployment CCTV towers which provide complete site security for remote sites and compounds. These projects are typically short to medium term construction projects.
What were the energy problems or challenges ?
Remote sites typically do not have mains powering, meaning WCCTV´s systems could only be powered by generators and / or long run batteries. By utilising EFOY Pro, they are able to offer longer term autonomous deployments meaning our systems were both more flexible and ecologically friendly.
How is the EFOY Pro integrated at the installation?
The EFOY Pro fuel cells are used in hybrid operation with batteries.
The solution: EFOY Pro fuel cells
EFOY Pro fuel cells are available in various power classes, from 40 W output power for small power systems to a 500 W module for UPS solutions.
How many EFOYs are used and are other other alternative power sources used in combination?
There are 13 systems that contain two EFOY units (Dual fuel cell) and 40+ that contain a single EFOY Pro. They are able to use solar powering on the systems, however they have only deployed these units in the US and ME.
What are the benefits of using the EFOY in the application?
Utilizing a single EFOY unit in a tower means they are able to offer autonomous power on the systems for up to 8 weeks. This means reduced site visits for engineers to refuel, and more around the clock security for the clients. It also broadens the spectrum of the business opportunities available to us as we are able to provide security to the most remote locations regardless of infrastructure.
EFOY Pro allows WCCTV to be more flexible in the way it provides its complete site security solutions. They are able to install our Rapid Deployment CCTV Towers into the most remote locations regardless of existing infrastructure, meaning that more people are able to benefit from the peace of mind and cost savings that our systems deliver. EFOY pro has helped us change the way we do business.
