Sunlabob installs fridge systems in remote Laos
- Published on Monday, 23 July 2012
Sunlabob has once again been awarded a national tender for rural Laos, this time for an Asian Development Bank (ADB) funded project to improve access to basic health services for people and animals in remote areas in Laos; the project is managed by the Ministry of Agriculture and locally by the Ministry of Health.
Powered by photovoltaic systems, each of the 44 vaccine systems comprises a high European quality refrigerator/freezer. Sunlabob Engineering has implemented complete installation works in 5 Southern Laos provinces: Savannakhet, Champasak, Salavan, Sekong and Attapeu, namely.
Beneficiaries among the 11,000 people who will be directly affected by the project have welcomed the installations in health and veterinary locations close to their villages greatly, as they now have improved access to health services such as safe vaccines.
Installation routine of Sunlabob Engineering was challenged by the weather conditions as the Monsoon raining season complicated access to several villages. With long days of rain, slopes and high river water levels became almost impassable by the installation trucks.
Sunlabob has once again demonstrated greatly its capabilities to perform under the most difficult weather conditions and circumstances to bring electricity and off grid systems to areas in need.
