Sunlabob ends 2011 on a high with yet another contract won


In Dec 2011, Sunlabob won a national tender for an Asian Development Bank (ADB) funded contract, handled locally by the Ministry of Education and Sports, Department of Higher Education, to supply and install electrical supply material at Champasak University in Southern Laos.

This installation will allow the university to generate more electricity to power equipment and lighting to accommodate its growing number of staff and students.

This is not the first time Sunlabob has been contracted to provide services for an ADB related project.

In April 2011, Sunlabob completed the installation of Solar Water Purification Systems at 5 villages in Khammouane province. The project, funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF), an initiative of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and partner with the ADB, is the result of a joint cooperation between the Lao Institute of Renewable Energy (LIRE) and Sunlabob. The GEF Small Grants Programme promotes sustainable development by channeling financial and technical support directly to NGOs for activities that conserve and restore the environment while enhancing people's well-being and livelihoods.

Sunlabob has also proven its capabilities in implementing local large-scale projects. In 2009, it successfully secured and completed a supply contract worth $1.72 million under the World Bank Rural Electrification Program to install 6,560 Solar Home Systems in Laos.

2011 has been an exceptional year for Sunlabob, having won many tender contracts and sub contracts. Ranging from local projects in Champasak to International projects in Eritrea and Guinea Bissau, Africa, Sunlabob has certainly proven its commitment to providing worldwide development efforts with reliable and advanced products and services.
