Noteworthy Women in Wireless Infrastructure – 2023

Chelsea Kovacs

Director of Business Development
SFC Energy

“A specific challenge that comes to mind was when we were asked to provide a mobile power solution to an open pit mining client. Maintaining communications at this site was of the utmost importance as unplanned communication downtime would have severe impacts across multiple stakeholders at the mine – not limited to just lost production.

In addition to reliability being a key requirement for the project, we were also tasked with providing a solution that could withstand the mine site’s harsh environmental extremes, all without producing harmful emissions. This was the perfect scenario for our EFOY fuel cell solution. We ended up deploying multiple EFOY fuel cell trailers to power the communication equipment across the mine. The robust design continues to withstand extreme cold temperatures, without producing a single harmful emission.

I am passionate about solving the telecommunication industry’s unique, remote power concerns, and specifically thrive under distinctive challenges. Being able to support customers who have substantial communication issues – and ultimately being able to bring them a solution is one of the things I love about my job!”
