Working with our local partners Beta Engineering, the solar systems were installed in the Somali, Afar, Benishangul, Gembella Regions of Ethiopia.
4 teams were deployed, 1 for each region. Some of the locations were very remote and had difficult access; the teams also had to work around the rainy season which affected the infrastructure networks in the area. During the installation programme there were also some security issues so the team was temporarily removed and then redeployed when conflict had ended.
By using our local partners Beta Engineering we were able to overcome any logistical issues due to their local knowledge and expertise. Following an extensive installation programme the 134 refrigerators were successfully installed at the designated health centres.
