VivoPower is pleased to announce that the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Tembo e-LV B.V., have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with a Jordanian Organisation to sell, distribute and market 4×4 Toyota vehicles which have been fully electrified by Tembo (Electrified Vehicles) and/or the Tembo electrification conversion kit for Toyota 4×4 vehicles (Conversion Kits).
Under the proposed agreement, the Jordanian Organisation intends to sell 1,000 Tembo e-LV conversion kits from execution of this agreement until 30th September 2027. The parties to the proposed agreement will work to finalise a Definitive Agreement as soon as practicable, and prior to 31st December 2022, unless the parties agree to an extension. All purchase commitments will be subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Definitive Agreement.
In October 2021, VivoPower established itself in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to extend its services to the Middle East and surrounding markets. Today’s announcement is the first significant agreement for the subsidiary and progression of the company’s growth strategy for the region.
Tembo’s conversion kits transform diesel-powered Toyota Land Cruiser and Hilux vehicles into ruggedised electric light vehicles for use in mining and other hard-to-decarbonise sectors. Tembo e-LV products are a key component of VivoPower’s turnkey net-zero solutions for the decarbonisation of corporate and public organisations.
Kevin Chin, Executive Chairman and CEO of VivoPower, said: “We are very pleased to move forward on gaining a new partner for Tembo in the region. This is in line with our strategy to expand our commercial activities and operations in the Middle East, the largest market for Toyota Land Cruisers in the world, and naturally follows the establishment of our local subsidiary for the region in the UAE in October last year. We look forward to cementing this partnership and servicing Jordan with our decarbonisation solutions.”
