In 2008, the Vendor designed and developed an electrical safety device, the Circuit Breaker Racking Unit (CBRU), which was created to mitigate the risks associated with manual 'racking' or engaging medium to high-voltage circuit breakers. The CBRU removes the arc flash risks that service personnel encounter. (See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hpE5LYj-CY for controlled demonstration of an arc flash explosion).
Since 2008, the CBRU has experienced significant commercial interest, having achieved partial-commercialisation success. The Vendor’s core business activities consist of other engineering projects, with the CBRU developed as a supplementary product. During the past eight years, the CBRU products have had significant ongoing development, testing and product improvements, however, the Vendor has indicated the CBRU products have remained as orphan products compared to their core business activities. For this reason, there hasn’t been significant marketing, sales and distribution focus on this business line.
The opportunity has now become available for a company or individual to take over the CBRU’s business assets and associated intellectual property to lead the operation through the next stage of development (growth stage). This opportunity would ideally suit a business with product distribution, marketing and sales capability in maintenance, electrical, electrical safety, mining, fabrication, engineering, energy or related industries.
