Ausplow operations manager at Naval Base, Gary Andrews, checks out the recently-installed solar panels on the roof of the main factory.

Our Naval Base factory in Leath Road, has a new look with the addition of 200 solar panels, installed on the main factory roof.
It is a 75Kw system to provide complementary power to the main power grid and will help to offset power costs associated with production.
At peak time, there can be as many as 18 welders working full-time every day to meet our factory build schedule of DBS precision seeding bars and Multistream ‘multi-delivery’ air seeders.
The installation of the solar panels is in line with the company’s ethos of contributing to environmental management and taking advantage of renewable energy technology.
So far production for the 2018 season is on schedule and we will soon be welcoming many more new DBS and Multistream owners into the Ausplow ‘family’.
According to Ausplow managing director John Ryan, the company has started 2018 on a positive note with the upgrade at the Naval Base factory and he expects to have a lot of positive news to tell owners as the year progresses.
“We’re already gearing up for what might possibly be a record year of research and development through trial work to be established throughout our Australian market,” he said.
“As we have already said last year, a lot of trials will be held in partnership with Primaries CRT and the University of WA, via its Future Farm at Pingelly.
“Our partnerships with industry provides a unique opportunity for all parties to develop more cost- effective production strategies for farmers, which has always been a priority for our research and development team.
“I extend New Year greetings to all our owners and wish them the best of luck for the coming season.”
