EcoQuip was established in 2013 by its Founder, Dave Sharp. After several years in the solar installation and battery systems development sectors, Dave identified a global scale transition from diesel powered mobile lighting solutions to solar / battery powered alternatives was building momentum; and a “step change” mobile solar / Li-Ion (LFP) battery powered lighting and communications tower solution was essential to deliver the reliability and safety performance required for critical infrastructure and autonomous mining equipment support systems.
In 2018, after several years of innovation and development, EcoQuip completed the design and initial manufacture of its fourth generation Mobile Solar Lighting / Communications Tower (MSLT / MSCT Gen 4); and selected an advanced LFP battery and related battery management solution that could deliver the safety and reliability requirements for our primary market focus on mining and construction’s critical infrastructure sector.
To achieve EcoQuip’s equipment high quality standards and reliability objectives, the business completed an extensive global partner identification and evaluation process.
The MSLT and MSCT Gen 4 are the most recent outcomes from EcoQuip’s approach to continual innovation. Our Gen 4 solution combines EcoQuip’s solar power system design and installation experience with the world class equipment design durability and functionality experience of a US military equipment and electronics design manufacturer; and a combined LFP battery and battery management system solution that we believe is ideally suited to deliver the durability, safety and reliability requirements for critical infrastructure support systems in the resources and construction sectors.
EcoQuip was 100% owned by its founder Dave Sharp until 2017. In early 2018, Volt Power Group Limited (ASX:VPR) became a 50% shareholder of EcoQuip and provided the funding to directly support a new growth strategy to roll-out EcoQuip’s innovative mobile solar power and battery system solutions to the resources and construction related markets globally.
