Delta's Subsidiary Eltek to Provide Renewable Energy Solutions to 104 Hospitals in Zimbabwe under the UNDP's "Solar for Health" Program
Taipei, Taiwan, January 23, 2017 – Delta, a global leader in power and thermal management solutions, announced today its Norway-based subsidiary, Eltek, has reached an agreement with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) for the supply, installation, service and monitoring of complete solar photovoltaic (PV) systems for 104 hospitals in Zimbabwe. These modular solar PV solutions, adaptable to different requirements in the field and in which Eltek's Rectiverter, the world's first bidirectional power module, is a key component, will help provide reliable and green electricity to hospitals in remote areas where a critical challenge is to keep medicines refrigerated. Installations are expected to be completed during the summer of 2017.
Mr. Ping Cheng, Delta's chief executive officer, indicated, "We congratulate Eltek for realizing our corporate mission, ‘To provide innovative, clean and energy-efficient solutions for a better tomorrow', by committing to the supply of state-of-the-art renewable energy solutions capable of improving the living standards of people in Zimbabwe under the UNDP's "Solar for Health" initiative. Corporate social responsibility is embedded into Delta's business model, thus, we leverage our core competence in high-efficiency power electronics and energy-saving solutions to promote the Green Building concept as well as sustainable development, just as we did in a series of side events during the 2015 UN Climate Change Conference (COP21) in Paris." Mr. Morten Schoyen, Eltek's chief marketing officer, said, "This contract represents a new and exciting area for Eltek and our technology. It makes us proud to work together with UNDP and to contribute to improve health care and reduce operational costs by providing pure and reliable renewable energy." Eltek's comprehensive solar PV solution will help provide safe, reliable and environmentally friendly electricity to hospitals in remote areas with no or poor electricity. A key challenge in these hospitals is to preserve medicines through the proper temperature conditions and to provide other essentials necessary for the hospitals to treat their patients. UNDP works in nearly 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve the eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. It helps countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results. The Solar for Health program is aimed at health facilities across Africa, the Arab States and Central Asia and addresses several of the main "Sustainable Development Goals" identified by the UN.
