Contract Power Group was recently awarded the Murchison Radio Astronomy Observatory by Horizon Power Regional Power Corp for a Design and Construct contract to be followed by a 7 year Operations and Maintenance contract on the remote diesel power supply.

Another significant contract for CPG and and powering an important device that is in the world spotlight as it is powering the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory (MRO) and is the home of the Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP) and the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA). It will shortly also be the home of a significant part of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) itself and South Africa will also host part of the SKA.
