Nanogrid Site Installation Begins in The Philippines
The final tests of the IMPHORAA project nanogrid systems have been completed and the site installation has been initiated in the Philippines.
Jon Defensor of QLM logistics and Ashadul Hoque from TVS have led the installation, making the trip to Port Silanguin in the Philippines. The solar panels and batteries have been delivered along with refrigerating cool box units.
All the components had to be delivered by boats due to the rural location of the installation site. This was a quite laborious activity requiring a lot of planning and effort.
The refrigerator units will allow the local fishermen to keep their catches fresh for longer, which will undoubtedly help them build and grow their businesses.
The locals shared their excitement with the team and are looking forward to using the refrigerators. Furthermore, night lights will be a unique experience for them to socialise after work.
IMPHORAA’s nanogrid systems will provide massive benefits to almost every aspect of these people’s lives.
