Solar power systems for a hospital & high schools

Hpa Pun hospital

Recently we have completed solar power system installation works in the District Hopital of Hpa Pun, the high school of Naung Ta Pwe and the high school of An Kaun.

The hospital of Hpa Pun is a big district hospital with 100 beds and was equiped with a small gasoline generator, however, the running cost for the generator is high and the power was not enought for all the facilities and it was seldom used.

In An Kaun high school, the school space  was too little to place batteries and often suffering from floods.    So, the parents of the students voluntarily worked to build a hut with a high floor to protect battery systems.

During this rainy season Myanmar suffered from a gigantic floods that caused big damages in many districts and our next work will be able to start from next November, which is also after the genral election of the country.

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.
