African hat-trick for Sunlabob


February was an exciting month for Sunlabob as it took the African market by storm by winning 3 United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) contracts in Sierra Leone, Mozambique and Liberia.

For Sierra Leone, Sunlabob was contracted to supply and install 3 Solar Power Plant Systems (20 KW and 16 KW) to provide electricity supply to Industrial Growth Centres that have been established to promote agric-entrepreneurship development for rural youth, men and women.

Over in Mozambique, Sunlabob is to supply and provide related services for 4 Solar Power Plant Systems (8KW, 6KW and 3KW), communications and computer equipment for remote border posts so as to improve the efficiency of customs operations.

For the Liberian project, Sunlabob was contracted to supply and install 3 Solar Power Plant Systems (20 KW, 10 KW and 5 KW) to provide electricity supply to two different locations in Ganta Town, and the Rubber Science Technology Institute at Harper. The objective of the project is to strengthen the socio-economic resilience of vulnerable communities through the development of productive skills of youths, crucial in gaining access to employment in local commerce sectors.

Sunlabob is no newcomer to the African region. In October 2011, Sunlabob won contracts to supply solar water pump equipment to the Gash Barka region of Eritrea, East Africa and Guinea Bissau, West Africa.

With commitment and determination, Sunlabob has grown from a small Lao company to one of Asia’s fastest growing renewable energy solutions provider. Ranging from the supply of equipment to the provision of technical and operational training, Sunlabob has proven it has the right mix of resources to achieve 100% results. The company has also developed strategic partnerships with respected manufacturers and suppliers to ensure top quality products are passed on to the end user.
