In spring 2017 BBM received the order to support the St. Josephs Hospital in Kitgum (UGANDA) with the installation of a photovoltaic system.
The unsteady electrical power supply and breakdowns handicapped the hospital work enormously.
On November 28th 2017 the PV system was successfully tested and handed over to the hospital. Already on the following day, a Sunday, from 09:00 a.m. on, the hospital was fed entirely by the PV system. On weekdays the feed-in of the PV will be between 25 and 30 %. A first and important step for a smooth, efficient and economic electrical power supply fort the hospital.
