Applications and functions of the
Solid oxide fuel cell
Sunfire-Remote is powered by conventional fuels and supplies power to critical infrastructures around the world. Thanks to simple installation, operation and maintenance, the areas of application are diverse.
Whether as a backup power supply for telecommunications systems in remote regions, a fast and reliable emergency power supply in the event of a power failure, for monitoring pipeline data (SCADA), for mobile power supply for outdoor events such as festivals and concerts or for use as a continuous power supply for weather stations and environmental monitoring equipment.
You can rely on us to provide you with a reliable source of energy in these numerous areas of application.
With numerous systems installed worldwide, Sunfire Fuel Cells is a trusted manufacturer in SOFC (Solid Oxide Fuel Cells) technology. Our stacks, the centrepiece of our solid oxide fuel cell devices, operate at temperatures between 750 °C and 850 °C.
They convert propane and natural gas into electricity and heat.
Are you wondering how you can reliably operate the power supply for your off-grid telecommunications operation?
The challenge of supplying power to a radio or telecommunications station in off-grid areas, such as on a mountain top, is an emotional challenge in many respects.
Imagine working in the midst of breathtaking but remote nature, without access to the public power grid. Every day is accompanied by the certainty that a power cut could interrupt your connection to the outside world.
At such moments, the loneliness of the mountain top becomes particularly palpable, as the power supply is a direct link to communication and safety. This emotional strain emphasises the need for a reliable solution that not only meets the technical requirements, but also offers the reassuring feeling of connection and safety.
Sunfire-Remote fulfils the special requirements and supplies reliable power even in icy regions such as Alaska.
Autonomy for telecommunication operations
Here, you find some projects that we as Sunfire Fuel Cells have already successfully implemented in the telecommunications sector.
Security & Surveillance
Do you want to reliably protect your construction sites, events, wind farms or railway crossings against vandalism and theft?
Imagine your project becoming a victim of vandalism and theft. The frustration and financial losses can be enormous. Reliable power supply systems are indispensable at major events and construction sites.
Whether 360° cameras for anti-theft protection or obstruction lights in the wind power industry - they all require uninterrupted power. This is where Sunfire-Remote comes into play. Our fuel cell generators offer a quiet, remotely controllable, low-maintenance and environmentally friendly alternative to diesel generators. In extreme conditions, our technology is proven to keep your critical systems up and running.
With Sunfire Remote, you get a reliable off-grid power supply without compromising. This allows you to concentrate on what really matters: the smooth running of your project and the security of your investment.

OIL AND GAS
How can you ensure that your SCADA systems have a reliable power supply even in remote areas?
Imagine you are responsible for supplying power to a vast pipeline in a remote, extreme environment. The challenges are immense: vast areas, extreme temperatures ranging from freezing cold to scorching hot and the need to prevent corrosion on gas pipelines. This is no easy endeavour.
But Sunfire Remote provides relief. Our innovative fuel cell generators are designed to bring autonomy to these off-grid pipeline infrastructures to supply your SCADA systems with sufficient power.
With amazing maintenance intervals of 10,000 hours and the option of remote monitoring, we offer innovative solutions. The use of autonomous drone systems also plays a key role in avoiding expensive and environmentally damaging aircraft missions for inspections, for example.

Environment & Meteorology
How can you meet the challenge of operating environmental monitoring and meteorological technology in remote areas, whether for research purposes or environmental protection?
Imagine you are faced with the challenge of conducting environmental monitoring and meteorological engineering in remote areas. Perhaps you are a researcher investigating the secrets of the weather or an environmentalist monitoring nature.
In this remote world, where conventional power supplies often fail, you are entering an unknown landscape. But there is a solution, a reliable technology that provides you with the power you need, whether for LiDAR, solar, radar or the operation of mountain huts and temporary buildings.
The quiet operation of the Sunfire Remote fuel cell allows you to realise your project autonomously over the long term without any negative impact on the environment.

Sunfire Fuel Cells GmbH, based in Neubrandenburg, Germany, is pleased to announce that the Sunfire Remote 400 fuel cell has successfully completed certification for the North American market and received the prestigious CSA certificate. In accordance with the certification standards, the product is now labelled with the CSA seal and the 'C' and 'US' indicators for Canada and the USA. The Sunfire-Remote 400 fuel cell, made in Germany, is a groundbreaking product that demonstrates Sunfire's many years of experience and excellence in terms of quality, safety and performance.
Propane fuel cell running on a mountaintop in the Rocky Mountains at 8,000 feet. Alberta, Western Canada: Sunfire Fuel Cells GmbH and its Canadian partner Ensol Systems Inc. have commissioned a propane-powered Sunfire Remote 400 fuel cell generator on a remote mountaintop 8,000 feet west of Calgary in the winter of 2022/23. This will provide power for a radio station on the mountaintop during the winter months, which can only be reached on foot or by helicopter. While in the summer months sufficient
Fuel cells as the cheapest and cleanest off-grid power supply! Today, off-grid power is usually understood to mean photovoltaic, wind and diesel generators or, under extreme operating conditions, thermoelectric generators (TEG). Photovoltaic and wind power systems are the most cost-effective power generators, as they require no additional fuel and little maintenance during operation. However, their biggest drawback in many cases is the volatility of solar radiation and wind supply, which necessitates the use of additional generators. In addition, power loads of more than 100 W can be generated depending on the available solar energy of the
The award-winning off-grid power generator from Sunfire Fuel Cells mbH is now one of over 1,000 profitable solutions to protect the environment worldwide. Sunfire-Remote was developed to replace diesel generators. This approach in particular convinced the independent experts at the Solar Impulse Foundation: "The use of diesel generators as power generators is widespread today. However, this is not favoured due to their harmful emissions and dependence on fossil fuels. The solution's power generators are a potentially favoured replacement for diesel generators due to their reduced emissions," says
