VivoPower is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary in Australia, Kenshaw Electrical, has been awarded a contract to supply and install electrical generators to a new COVID-19 mass vaccination hub soon to be opened in Belmont, New South Wales.
The generators delivered by Kenshaw will support critical refrigeration of vaccines and air conditioning at the new hub, the second mass vaccination center to be opened in New South Wales. Located just a short distance from Kenshaw’s headquarters in Newcastle, the Belmont hub will utilize both the Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines once opened in mid-July, with the capacity to administer up 20,000 vaccine doses per week to one of the state’s most populated regions.
The project underscores Kenshaw’s long-standing partnership with Hunter New England Health. Kenshaw has been providing critical power services to health facilities in New South Wales for over 15 years, including successful generator upgrade projects at four major hospitals since 2018.
Adam Malcolm, General Manager of Kenshaw, said: “Kenshaw is excited to have the opportunity to deliver yet another essential health infrastructure project to the people of New South Wales and our community in and around Newcastle. We are especially proud to be part of the state’s second mass vaccination hub, a project that will be a vital part of helping New South Wales and Australia bounce back stronger than ever from the COVID-19 pandemic. With just six weeks from announcement of this new hub to its opening, our work here also highlights Kenshaw’s capability to deliver critical, large-scale power projects in a short period of time.”
