Boundary Power, a joint venture between West Australian utility, Horizon Power, and Australian owned and operated engineering industry leader, Ampcontrol, has been awarded a 2021 Good Design Award in Engineering Design for its Solar Qube® stand-alone power system (SAPS).

Boundary Power’s Director, Rod Henderson, said this was an outstanding achievement for the joint venture which had only launched in late 2020.

“The Solar Qube® is the only SAPS of its kind in Australia that can be deployed and ready to export energy in under 90 minutes,” Henderson said.

“Its innovative modular design means the Solar Qube® can be factory pre-assembled to fit standardised shipping container specifications for easy transportation.

“With no site works required, deployment can occur immediately, making the Solar Qube® well suited to support emergency services in their rapid response and recovery from major disasters such as fires, floods and storms.”

The Good Design Awards judging panel said the Solar Qube® was a great example of an innovation-led solution to support the increase in deployment of renewable energy into the Australian energy network.

The panel added that the Solar Qube® brings important enhancements like its rapid deployment, and has immediate application for remote locations, delivering a valuable power source to those who need it.

The Solar Qube® offers power utilities an innovative utility-grade solution for remote or hard to reach communities where the cost to maintain and upgrade traditional poles and wires infrastructure can be significantly higher. The Solar Qube®’s stand-alone power capabilities can provide continuous, high quality, reliable power quickly.

The Australian Good Design Awards is the country’s oldest and most prestigious international awards for design and innovation. The Awards celebrate the best new products and services on the Australian and international market, and this year attracted a record number of submissions with 933 design projects.
