Solar system in Libya operating in Abu Salim Accidents Hospital
After three months of installing the solar panels, the administration of the Abu Salim Accidents Hospital, Tripoli, has started operating the solar power generators.
The project was conducted by the engineers of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Libya as part of its project to install solar systems (for emergency use) in several hospitals in Libya.
“This is the first time a Libyan hospital would be operating using solar power.” Abu Salim municipal council’s Facebook posted, adding that the UNDP in Libya will set up nine solar systems in nine hospitals across Libya in coordination with the municipalities.
The Abu Salim municipal council explained that this step is going to make the best use of the solar power to cover the current failures of the main electricity network in the hospital, adding that, according to the engineers, the solar system has proved effective when put to test in the last two days.
