PAPUA NEW GUINEA HEALTH CENTRE
LIFE SAVING RENEWABLE ENERGY
SOLAR AND BATTERY STORAGE SOLUTION
The Health Centre is situated in the remote area of Mougulu in Papua New Guinea. The centre's initial power supply consisted of a heavy reliance on diesel generators supplemented by a 12 volt solar system.
The remote location of the centre, inaccessible by road or boat, meant diesel fuel required delivery by air leading to high transportation costs. This setup provided unreliable and limited power supply inadequate to meet the centre's needs. Faced with regular power outages life saving oxygen concentrators were inoperable and refrigeration used to store vaccinations and anti-venom solutions unavailable leading to significant wastage.
Unlimited Energy Australia worked with our installation partner Lukas Schadegg at CRMF Solar Services providing consultation and design services for the project.
The renewable energy solution consists of a 10kWp solar array coupled with a 34kWh Tesvolt battery storage energy system. The energy solution runs the off-grid facility independently from the diesel generator providing, reliable, sustainable and low maintenance energy.
The result - a solution that ensures vital health services are available to meet the needs of the people of Mougulu and the surrounding communities.
