EcoQuip was established in 2013 by its Founder, Dave Sharp. After several years in the resources and rooftop solar installation sectors, Dave identified the global scale potential for a zero-emission solar / battery powered mobile light tower with the required reliability and illumination performance to displace diesel powered mobile lighting solutions.

Over 5-years, Dave designed and manufactured EcoQuip’s initial mobile solar light towers in his home garage. Thereafter, working with suppliers and sub-contractor partners to create 2 further solar light tower solutions with incrementally enhanced illumination performance and reliability.

In 2018, Dave partnered with ASX listed Volt Power Group Limited (Volt) to advance the design and development of a fourth generation Mobile Solar Lighting / Communications Tower solution. The Volt Board supported Dave’s vision that a bespoke step-change power management, telemetry, illumination and storage technology platform was possible and required to achieve the reliability, illumination performance and charge efficiency necessary to displace traditional diesel-fuelled lighting solutions.

Our combined “moon-shot” aspiration was to also deliver end user customers with a significant reduction in related operating costs and improved employee safety to compel a transition from diesel fuelled to solar powered mobile lighting in the resources, infrastructure construction and civil sectors.


In late 2021, after 4-years of new technology development, trialling and testing with our US partners we had achieved and exceeded our “moon-shot” aspiration.

Today, EcoQuip enables customers to advance ESG objectives & operational cost reduction targets by offering our emissions-free solutions to displace diesel-fuelled equipment alternatives, improve solution reliability and reduce equipment scheduled maintenance. We are a customer focussed business, capable of supplying mobile solar power equipment solutions anywhere across the globe.


As an OEM equipment solution developer, EcoQuip maintains a committed focus on continuous technology development and performance improvement.

We share the philosophy and perspective that if EcoQuip is not actively moving forward with new product initiatives through technology development we are going backwards. We are dedicated to transparency and competitive advantage to deliver a compelling customer value proposition.
