First Aid Africa, the Scottish charity supporting sustainable healthcare, and Renovagen, a UK renewable supplier and manufacturer, have deployed a clean energy portable solar system in Zambia’s Mbereshi Mission Hospital, Luapula province, to speed up Covid-19 testing and reduce wastage of valuable reagents.

The rapid response project is aimed at supporting testing operations in the fight against the pandemic in Zambia.

Renovagen managing director John Hingley said: “The Fast Fold system has proven itself to be an extremely flexible tool for fast response in remote locations where the use of heavy equipment to deploy larger systems may not be practical and specialist electrical skills may not be available.

“Whether the driving factor for urgency is a global pandemic, a natural disaster, or population displacement, there will continue to be many scenarios where self-sustaining power is required at sites that are difficult to access. Often, the provision of that power without reliance on fuel for generators can be life-saving.”
