New Installation of Solar Power Systems continue

As the rainy season is starting in Myanmar we are accelerating our solar power installation works.   The construction of roads and bridges are going on at surprising speed in the Karen State, there still are many rivers without bridges and ,when the river is wide and deep, we have to use boat to carry equipment & materials.

After the completion of the solar systems ,their ownerships are transfered to the owner of the premises(school or hospital).    As the maintenance work is quite important for the longer life of the systems, as well as to save the cost for maintenance.    Hence ,we are conducting maintenance training, choosing people to take responsibility for the maintenance works.

Currently we are working to install solar power systems to the District Hospital with 100 beds in the township of Hpa Pun, which is expected to be finished by the middle of July.

The hospital in Syan Ywar Thit sub-township is located in the village not accessible during the rainy season. Waiting for the completion of the hospital construction work, BHN installed solar electric systems in Feb. 2015.

The road condition to the sub-township has been improved substantiaqlly since 2013 when we first visited there,however, there still remain many small rivers without bridges to reach the sub-township.  Tha hospital is composed of many buildings;main building,doctors' houses,employees' houses,etc. and all of these buildings and houses are now equipped with solar electricity.  BHN also installed LED lamps and a radio telephone set there.

Doctors of the hospital will move around for diagnosis to small villages without any telephone connection.  Hence, BHN installed special radio telephone sets in such 7 villages to get connected with the hospital and make consultation with doctors.

Succeeding to the hospital, BHN installed another solar electricity systems in the high school of Hpa Pya village located far in the south of Kayin(Karen) state.

By October. ~November  the rainy season is over in Myanmar and the visits to our expected construction sites became possible by land.  We made several visits to the hospital under construction in Shan Ywar Thit sub-township to make final designing for the solar power systems and to fix the budget.  

The complex of the hospital buildings are confirmed to be completed soon by the end of January and our works for the solar power system will start in the middle of February.

Also, in the southern part of Kayin State, there are still many schools without electricity and we have conducted researches and visits to schools for consideration in our next work.   

However, the recent clashes between the government forces and minority ethnic forces making our visits to the locations very difficult as most of our target points are located in the delicate areas.
