German manufacturer SFC Energy AG said it named Gemeco Marine Accessories as a marine distributor for its Efoy Comfort fuel cells in the United States.

Gemeco, of Lake City, S.C., has been a specialist in marine products since 1980, serving marine electronics dealers, boatbuilders and other industry professionals. The company said it will sell the full range of Efoy Comfort fuel cells and fuel cartridges to customers in the East and Midwest.

“Our appointment of Gemeco Marine Accessories as a U.S. distributor will help introduce and accelerate the adoption of an innovative solution to onboard power generation,” SFC Energy CEO Peter Podesser said in a statement.

“Widely recognized as marine technology experts dedicated to representing high-quality manufacturers, Gemeco is an ideal partner to help us grow our brand in the U.S. market.”

SFC Energy said its Efoy fuel cells have been providing reliable off-grid power to leisure applications since 2005. The company said the silent, environmentally friendly fuel cells are connected to a boat’s battery and provide power on demand and fully automatically so users don’t have to worry about power again, without the considerable noise or exhaust of a generator.

Efoy Comfort will be available in several power classes to fulfill different energy needs.

“We pride ourselves on delivering the most innovative products to our marine customers,” said Peter Braffitt, general manager of Gemeco.

“Efoy fuel cells are a major breakthrough technology offering boaters a silent, totally automatic eco-friendly charging solution. We look forward to building the Efoy brand in the U.S. and to a new partnership with SFC Energy, an award-winning manufacturer and worldwide leader of fuel cell technology.”
