Tembo Next Generation EUV Kit Deliveries Have Commenced

05 Feb 2024

Access Industrial Mining Inc in Canada is the inaugural partner to receive shipment

Founded in 1998, Access is a key distributor and supplier to the Canadian mining and industrial sectors

Previously signed Definitive Agreement for 1,675 EUV conversion kits over five years

Tembo E-LV, a subsidiary of the Nasdaq-listed B Corp, VivoPower, is pleased to announce today that it has begun delivery of its next-generation Electric Utility Vehicle (EUV) powertrain conversion kits.  The first delivery of kit components was made to Access Industrial Mining Inc, Tembo’s exclusive distributor in Canada.

Following the completion of Access’s successful testing program of the Tembo converted 4x4 Landcruiser in Europe in 2023, Access placed an initial order for EUV powertrain conversion kits. Further testing was then conducted across both hardware and software elements of the EUV powertrain conversion kits.  This was pursuant to a definitive agreement for Access to purchase 1,675 Tembo EUV conversion kits over a period of five years.

The Tembo EUV conversion kits will transform new and second-hand diesel-powered 4×4 LandCruiser and Hilux vehicles into ruggedised EUVs that are fit for purpose for mining and other industrial applications. Tembo EUV conversion kits are a key component of VivoPower’s turnkey sustainable energy solutions, designed to help corporate customers accelerate toward their net zero carbon goals and achieve cost savings.

Tembo selected Access as the Company’s distribution partner in Canada because of Access’s long track record and experience supplying, customizing, and servicing Toyota LandCruisers, as well as its extensive and active relationships with mining and other industrial companies.

Martin Paquette, General Manager of Access, said: “We are excited to start the electrification retrofit process on our clients’ LandCruisers using Tembo’s EUV conversion kit, and thus to offer EUVs to our clients across Canada. This is a product which has been in demand for some time in the market given our clients’ broader sustainability objectives and key legislation.”

Kevin Chin, Chairman and CEO of VivoPower, said: “For Tembo, quality and safety are of paramount importance. Following a disciplined testing program over the last 12 months, we are very pleased to have begun delivery of the next-generation EUV conversion kits and look forward to supporting our valued partner, Access as well as our other partners across the globe to electrify their utility vehicle fleets. In doing so, we look forward to helping them meet their commercial objectives, including in relation to sustainability goals.”
