Azimut360 to install 501,3 kWp of Solar Panels at the Medical Research Centre of The Gambia
Azimut360 is glad to announce that, partnering with Fandema (Mbolo Association) and financed by Unido & MRC, is installing a 501kWp Solar PV installation for the Medical Research Centre of The Gambia (MRGC) in two of their compounds: Fajara and Keneba. The PV System will reduce the use of grid power as well as the back-up generators’ consumption (saving on power and fuel bills), and thus will pave a critical step in support of the environmental objectives of the MRC by reducing the carbon footprint in Africa. Work on site will take 3 months and the system ais expected to be generating solar electricity by July 2019. The project aims to:
- Provide clean energy, improving the energy supply of MRCG and giving further stability on its energetic mix
- Train local women installers on the design, installation, maintenance and operation of a Solar PV system. This knowledge transfer that will allow to replicate similar projects locally.
- On-line lessons via webinars including basic and advanced training about concepts of Solar PV design, sizing, H&S and regulations.
- On-site lessons, with a practical training to learn the installation of the mounting structure for PV modules, wiring, electrical protection and O&M
