Off-Grid PV Training in Eritrea
The large-scale project for the electrification of 314 local governments in Eritrea financed by the EU is advancing. 36 local technicians, installers and technical advisors of the Ministry of Justice, that is the project owner, were trained for the installation of Off-Grid solar systems in January. The team of Phaesun Memmingen and Phaesun Asmara carried out an intensive three days’ training course including both elements of theory and practice in a training centre in the Eritrean capital of Asmara.
In 2014, Phaesun had supplied the components for the solar systems which will provide electricity for the computers, illumination and other office equipment of local governments in rural areas of Eritrea. Up to now, in many cases diesel generators are used which, however, cause problems due to a lack of feeding and emissions. The installation of these solar systems is supposed to be completed by the end of 2015. Find more pictures of the training on our Facebook page here.
