Boundary Power, a joint venture between West Australian utility, Horizon Power, and Australian electrical, electronic and control solutions provider, Ampcontrol, has been recognised for ‘Energy Innovation of the Year’ for its diverse range of stand-alone power system (SAPS) solutions at the Australian Institute of Energy’s (AIE) 2021 WA Energy Awards.

Held to recognise the importance of sharing innovation, best practice and continuous improvement within the energy sector, the WA Energy Awards are facilitated by the Perth branch of the Australian Institute of Energy.

Speaking following Wednesday nights’ acceptance, Boundary Power Director, Rod Henderson, commented,

“Our range of stand-alone power systems represent a truly unique energy innovation, allowing beneficiaries to live and work wherever they require, without the need for fixed poles and wires infrastructure.”

“From the ground-mounted R-series SAPS designed to power large loads, to the Solar Qube® SAPS, a rapidly deployable power generation source capable of energy export within 90 minutes of deployment, our diverse range of SAPS solutions provide a reliable, off-grid and clean energy alternative to the market.

“The Solar Qube®’s unique combination of innovative design and manufacturing principles and swappable sub-components have resulted in a rapidly deployable SAPS solution capable of significantly benefiting rural and remote customers, particularly in the midst of, and subsequent recovery from, a natural disaster event,” Henderson added.

Recognition of ‘Energy Innovation of the Year’ represents the third award bestowed upon Boundary Power’s range of SAPS solutions in the last week, closely following last week’s reception of a Good Design Award for ‘Engineering Design and a Hunter Manufacturing Award for ‘Excellence in Product Design’, both for the Solar Qube® solution.

“It’s great to see that an innovative solution such as the Solar Qube® SAPS is receiving such positive recognition within industry. We look forward to continuing our SAPS journey and are focussed on the manufacture and deployment of up to 50 SAPS units over the remainder of this financial year as part of the Western Australian Government’s ‘WA Recovery Plan,’” Henderson concluded.
