History

Early-Days-Magellan-Power.JPG

Magellan Powertronics was founded in 1991 by Masoud Abshar. In Perth Australia. After migrating to Perth as a hands-on practical Power Electronics design engineer, he saw there was a distinct lack of opportunity for engineers interested in creating products and solutions. At the time, much of equipment needed for mining and other industries was imported and there was very little in the way of local manufacturing.

 

Masoud saw the potential to design and manufacture customized, high reliability, long life, Power Electronics equipment to suit Australian customer needs and the harsh operating conditions. 

 

The first product was the SPC DC power systems created in 1991. Along the way, many more advanced power products such as MCRI, MCRII DC power system as well as industrial Inverters and UPS followed. 

 

Around 2009 having developed high quality AC and DC systems, Magellan was one of first companies in the world to enter the Energy Storage field and since then Magellan has developed, Australian made Home Energy Storage, Commercial/Industrial Scale Energy Storage, Utility Scale Energy Storage and Stand Alone Power Systems. 

 

Magellan has grown from a one-person, one-product business to the team it is today, employing Research and Development engineers, Production Engineers, Technicians, Electrician, Production Personnel and site service technicians. Magellan’s guiding principles are `Making products that last for years’ and Steadfast Support of our customers

Brookfield Rail’s Merredin office regularly sources power chargers from Magellan Power, and we always find it an easy process for new purchases and repairs. Their Sales & Repair Manager Shijo is prompt with responses to our queries, and on one occasion travelled to Merredin to meet with us, which we found extremely helpful.
