This official handover ceremony took place on Wednesday for the modern solar power system project to supply electricity to some facilities of Gharian Central Teaching Hospital, the hospital reported.
It stated that it is the first smart (hybrid) system to be installed in North Africa with these specifications, with a storage capacity of 100 kW. This included the system’s batteries’ ability to transfer to the public electricity network if they are weakened.
The hospital said the project comes in the framework of using renewable energies by providing electric current through solar energy and linking it to sensitive departments. These include the operating rooms, the children’s department, childcare, and the analysis department as well as providing lighting.
A cadre from the Faculty of Engineering was trained to operate and maintain the system, sponsored by the Academy of Higher Studies, Gharyan Branch, which gave a full course to the trainees and in coordination with the Municipality of Gharian.
