Power and control systems manufacturer Ampcontrol and Western Australian utility Horizon Power have joined forces to market standalone power systems for remote communities and mining sites.
The companies, who have installed 17 systems in WA, will market a range of SPS systems including Ampcontrol’s renewably-powered and relocatable SPS Gen 2 Solar Cube (pictured) revealed by @AuManufacturing earlier this month.
The partners launched their venture, Boundary Power, a joint venture with Ampcontrol offshoot CPS National.
Boundary Power Director, Rod Henderson said the launch was the next strategic step in leveraging the two business’s accumulated and substantial SPS expertise.
Henderson said: “(The) deployment of 17 SPS systems on customer properties east of Esperance…enabled Horizon Power to be the first utility in Australia to remove 64 kilometres of poles and wire permanently.
“We have proven SPS to be a commercially viable renewable power solution that is fully off-grid and tailored to service a broad range of purposes and industries.”
SPS uses solar and battery technology to generate and store electricity, providing safer, higher quality and more reliable power, 24 hours a day.
Henderson said: “The advanced modularity design makes Boundary Power’s SPS units easier to transport, quicker to install and more affordable to maintain.
“An SPS Gen 2 can be deployed off the truck and ready for energy export in just 90 minutes, with onsite maintenance, servicing needs and costs reduced thanks to easily swappable module components.”
