Boundary Power will provide its Kiosk SAPS, including a solar PV power system with battery storage, to Water Corporation, enabling an improved and future-proofed solution.

Incorporating solar panels, batteries, inverters and a back-up diesel generator, Boundary Power has proven SAPS to be a viable alternative to traditional poles and wires infrastructure. This is particularly evident for remote and isolated customers where Boundary Power’s SAPS are delivering safer, higher quality and more reliable power.

Boundary Power director Rod Henderson said, “The key to Boundary Power’s ability to adapt and re-engineer our designs is what sets our products apart.

“Our team has the expertise to offer complete purpose-built solutions, to design and engineer from our suite of products, and to deliver uniquely designed solutions for our customers.”

Boundary Power’s Kiosk system is an all-purpose, all-climate off-grid power solution capable to deliver larger loads, with a centralised control system to manage power and comes with a Category D wind rating.

Project works have commenced, with design, development, manufacture and installation scheduled to be completed by early 2023.
