Su-Kam is making rapid strides in installing solar power projects in foreign markets. The company has recently bagged a turnkey solar project covering 35 schools in Rwanda, Africa through the Ministry of external affairs, Govt. of India.
Rwanda, officially the Republic of Rwanda, is a sovereign state in central and east Africa. Located a few degrees south of the Equator, Rwanda is bordered by Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Su-Kam shall supply, install and commission Solar Photo Voltaic equipment and associated items for 35 schools in remote areas of Rwanda. The company shall also be responsible for pre-installation survey of the site and drawing out a detailed engineering plan. Su-Kam shall also provide a warranty of 1 year post the completion of the project. The Su-kam officials shall also provide onsite training on operation & maintenance (O&M) to the personnel/staff/technicians of Rwanda.
Speaking on the same, Mr Dhananjay Sharma, GM-Solar Business-Domestic & International, said, “Su-Kam has embarked on a mission to provide solar solutions to various institutions like schools, colleges, hospitals, petrol pumps, Govt. buildings etc. both in India and overseas. The company provides customized solar solutions to meet the requirements of these institutions.”
“In Africa, many countries do not have the basic infrastructure to set up power plants for energy generation. At such places, solar solutions are the apt and most lucrative ways for meeting power needs. The continent has abundant solar energy that can be tapped and utilized accordingly. Our team of experts at Su-Kam visits these sites, draws out a detailed engineering plan and executes the project using our best in class solar products.” He added.
With a wide presence in over 70 countries overseas, Su-Kam is now undertaking a large number of solar projects abroad. The company has already made its solar presence felt in countries like Nigeria, Malawi, Afghanistan, Gabon etc. The team has successfully installed electricity powered by wind and solar energy for the first time for the inhabitants of five remote villages: Chigundu, Mdayaka, Eluyumi, Kumbande and Kadzuwa in Malawi. In each village, Su-Kam has installed 3 wind generators of 4.2 kW each, along with solar photovoltaic modules of 24 V / 150 W, generating 7.5 kW. All told, the systems are generating 20.1 kW for around 150 households in each village.
In Gabon, Su-Kam has installed street lights in rural areas like Kango, Mouila and Bitam. The inhabitants of these villages had never seen electricity before the street lights were installed.
