Eltek to provide solar energy for hospitals in Zimbabwe under UNDP programme
by Staff Writers
Drammen, Norway (SPX) Jan 31, 2017


The "solar for health programme" is aimed at health facilities across Africa, the Arab States and Central Asia and addresses several of the main "sustainable development goals" identified by the UN.

Eltek has announced a contract with United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to provide complete photovoltaic solar solutions for 104 hospitals in Zimbabwe.

Eltek will provide full delivery, installation, service and monitoring of the solar systems which use Eltek's breakthrough Rectiverter technology as a key component. The Rectiverter combines the functions of a rectifier and an inverter.

With a modular design, these solar power solutions can easily be adapted to different requirements in the field. Installation of the equipment is expected to be completed during the summer of 2017.

The main purpose of the installation will be to provide safe, reliable and environmentally friendly electricity to hospitals in remote areas that currently have no, or poor, grid access.

A key challenge in these hospitals is to keep medicines refrigerated and to provide other essentials necessary for the hospitals to treat their patients.

"This contract represents a new and exciting area for Eltek and our technology," said Morten Schoyen, Chief Marketing Officer at Eltek.

"It makes us proud to work together with UNDP and to contribute to improved health care and reduced operational cost, by providing pure and reliable renewable energy," Mr. Schoyen added.

UNDP works in nearly 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve the eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. The organization helps countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results.
