Installation of solar diesel hybrid systems in the islands of H. A. Atoll in Maldives has begun.
Ministry of Environment and Energy reports that once the project is complete, the H. A. Atoll will have a 2.3 megawatt solar PV system, 17 3.3 megawatt diesel power generators, 2.5 megawatt batteries and cable and automatic synchronizing panel boards in every island.
The Ministry also said that necessary energy management systems will be established using modern technology for management and maintenance, as resources for power generation are developed.
Training will be provided for staff, both in Maldives and abroad, to prepare them to use the new systems, said the Ministry.
The Ministry of Environment said the project will be complete in May, ensuring efficient power services to all.
