Installing the new arrays
It is exciting to be finally upgrading the Bwiam Hospital solar power system from its original 12kW solar system commissioned in 2009. For this project, we selected the Gambian company Greenlink ( http://www.greenlink.solar/ ) to serve as our contractor. Critically, all three of the Bwiam Hospital’s electrical maintenance staff – Saikou, Sarjo and Omar – worked with Greenlink on every step of the process so that they could understand each part of the system and be able to keep the system running over time.
This upgrade was funded in part by a Global Environmental Facilities grant administered through UNIDO, with the remaining funding provided by generous donors including the Robertson Interfund Gifts, the Nana Fund of the Triskeles Foundation, and many additional individual donors.
