As the on ground works in the project are close to finished, we thought it a good opportunity to give everyone an update. The following is a brief summary of the very busy last few months. A more detailed explanation and recognition of the suppliers involved in all aspects of the project as well as links and the specifications of equipment will be posted on the project website once up and running.
The last of the project partnerships are being finalised. Graphics and vehicle signage will follow soon after. We would also like to thank everyone involved for their assistance in all aspects of the project. There has been an overwhelming amount of interest generated by the scope of the projects aims and this will now be distributed to the various media sources who have expressed interest.
The conversion of the Mitsubishi Triton is all but complete. The last components have arrived in Australia and will be fitted in the next couple of days. A couple of pictures below are a small glimpse of what has been happening during the retrofit. Some delays were experienced in accessing and shipping of essential components for the Lithium-ion cells. The computer Battery Management System and custom charger have been designed and supplied by Rod Dilkes from EV Power Australia Pty Ltd.
