ENERGY ASSISTANCE asbl: Mission in Warang Les Cajoutiers, Senegal (4-15 september 2016)

21-10-2016 - 09:02

 This project, in the proximity of M’Bour, about 90 km South of Dakar, consisted of the installation of a solar panel kit producing 2400 Wp. This installation produces and delivers electricity to a grammar school comprising no less than 650 pupils from the 1st to the 6th grade; with on top three classes for the deaf and mute.

 

21 classes, an administrative building, a kitchen, a sick ward, a library, a toilet block for boys and girls and living quarters for the guard, in other words,  46 light fixtures and various sockets that require power.

 

Also a night/security lighting and an automatic well pump was installed, both powered by the solar panel produced electricity.

Our three volunteers, Freddy Arzée (a Cofely – Fabricom retiree), Dominique Thomas (Ores) and Oriano Vergnanini (ENGIE Electrabel), assisted by Sadio, a local volunteer, needed all their strength and energy to successfully complete this mission, which was quite challenging due to the monsoon season.
