VivoPower International PLC’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Tembo E-LV, has secured an order for its electric vehicle (EV) conversion kits from Atlas Iron, an iron ore mining company based in Western Australia.
A subsidiary of Hancock Prospecting Pty Ltd, Atlas Iron operates the Mt Webber, Sanjiv Ridge and Miralga mines.
Kevin Chin, VivoPower’s Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are delighted to be assisting Atlas Iron in their journey towards electrification and energy efficiency. With the opening of borders across Australia and Southeast Asia, we have been increasing our engagement with other groups and expect to be announcing additional orders in due course.”
The Tembo kits are able to transform diesel-powered Toyota Land Cruiser and Hilux vehicles into ruggedised e-LVs for use in mining and other hard-to-decarbonise sectors, including construction and defence.
