SiteManager helps keep remote hospital at full power
Technological expertise is hard to come by in some of the world’s most isolated regions. But a shortfall in local skills is easily overcome if you have the technology to operate remotely. In Myanmar’s Karen State, a newly built teaching hospital operates day and night under the watchful care of experts located 11,000 km away in Canada.
This far-reaching engineering support comes from the team at Global Neighbors, the Canadian charity that built the hospital. Global Neighbors uses Secomea’s SiteManager to remotely monitor the hospital’s power needs and keep the electricity flowing. When the hospital’s array of solar panels is unable to keep up with demand, Global Neighbors feeds in extra power from an onsite diesel generator.
