Sunlabob installs 18.2kW grid- connected solar photovoltaic system in Savannakhet, Lao PDR

2018 01 Solar Grid

In December 2017, Sunlabob completed the installation of a 18.2kW grid-connected solar photovoltaic system for a non-governmental organization called Sengsavang located in Savannakhet Province, South of Laos.

Sengsavang contracted Sunlabob for a turn-key package of engineering design, procurement, installation, commission and post-sales maintenance. The grid-connect solar PV system was an ideal solution for Sengsavang with lower upfront cost than a system with battery bank (energy storage). The energy harvested will be consumed by Sengsavang themselves, reducing the monthly electricity bill and overall, reduce its environmental footprint.

“Given the long association that Sunlabob has with Sengsavang, we are proud to have installed a grid-connect solar system that will bring in ongoing cost-savings to this great organization” said Daophet Vongsakhamhoui, Head of Community Development, Sunlabob.

About Sengsavang: It’s a non-governmental organization that provides protection and assistance to victims and girls at risk of human trafficking and sexual exploitation in Laos. Additionally, Sengsavang offers education, job skills development and micro-business starter kits to support a sustainable community reintegration to the victims.

Sunlabob installs solar-powered refrigerators and lighting systems for three health centers in Luang Prabang Province

2017 11 Solar Fridge

Sunlabob recently completed installation of solar-powered refrigerators and lighting system in Lao Sau, Phadeang, and Muang Mouy health centers in Luang Prabang Province, Lao PDR.

Funded by Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and contracted by Save the Children (SCI), the project focused primarily on the provision of reliable energy for lighting and storage of vaccines which in turn improves availability and quality of health care in remote off grid areas. These new systems will allow staff at the health centers to now respond to emergencies faster, and provide aid to patients during the night.

“Access to energy enables better access to health facilities in the remote communities, it is that simple!” said Daophet Vongsakhamhoui, who heads the Community Development of Sunlabob.

117 kWp rooftop solar PV system designed and installed by Sunlabob Renewable Energy

Sunlabob Renewable Energy, Ltd., a venture-backed company specializing in decentralized renewable energy this week recognized the official launch of the 117 kilowatt peak (kWp) solar photovoltaic (PV) system at Junction City, a world-class integrated commercial development in downtown Yangon.

The roof-mounted project, which finished construction in early 2017, is the first-ever grid-connected commercial rooftop PV system in Myanmar. It is projected to produce an average of more than 140,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of emissions-free electricity each year, which will be fully consumed by the retail space of Junction City.

Shwe Taung Group, the lead developer of Junction City, contracted Sunlabob for all services and materials related to the solar project including engineering design, procurement, installation, commissioning and post-sales maintenance.

Funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the project focused on the provision of improved access to clean water in the target communities. Solar-powered water pumps, elevated storage tanks, and distribution systems have been installed in the three villages. Three members of each community have been trained to carry out repair and maintenance of the system. An awareness and education programme was set for the target communities in the proper use and management of new access to a distributed water system. The water accessed through these new taps now allows the entire community to drink, irrigate, wash and cook much more easily than before, bringing a vital change in the quality of life for people living in areas like Attapue Province where clean water is difficult to access.
