Mission MIVAKPO and repairs on 4 different sites

The mission managed by Jean Noel Marchand (Electrabel) and Roland Ronchain (Electrabel) had as target to electrify the day clinic of Mivakpo, situated about a hundred kilometers from the Lomé, the capital of Togo.

 The project lead by Willy Vanderelst (retired from Laborelec) secured and improved the interventions of the medical staff (doctors, nurses) on the spot. 

A full installation of 4 solar panels was put in place.  The electricity produced by these panels, supplies the lighting in the delivery and the waiting room and foresees the sockets in the medical staff’s office of power. Another two panels are dedicated to powering the fridge, where vaccines and medications are kept. 

At the same time, Energy Assistance volunteers, analysed the broken down panels of the orphanage and day clinic at Wli and the day clinic at Meduime.  The team managed to replace the batteries and the faulty regulators.

 During this stay, the efficient help and the lodging provided by Sylvia Roovers from the Joko Togo Association, were crucial to the succeeding of this multifold mission.
