The refugee camp Mam Rashan is located in 75 kilometres distance from the city Mosul in northern Iraq. About 8.500 people have found shelter in Mam Rashan from the violent conflicts which keeps haunting the region. Donations made it possible to erect important structures such as living containers, schools, a hospital, a football field and a trauma centre. However, the camp can only be provided with electricity during night time. Thus, during the day there is no electricity for cooling systems, cooking or electronic devices.

Through the initiative of the non-profit organization atmosfair gGmbH, Mam Rashan is now to be provided with a 300 kWp PV-plant in combination with an energy storage solution. The major financing comes from the foundation for development cooperation “Stiftung Entwicklungs-Zusammenarbeit Baden-Württemberg (SEZ)” which is attached to the federal state of Baden-Württemberg, Germany. Additionally, several expert firms from the PV-industry support the initiative through services and know-how transfer on a donation basis. The PV-plant is to be commissioned end of June 2018.

As an experienced PV-specialist, greentech contributes to this project with supporting the operation & maintenance of the plant. As a part of this greentech provides special trainings to the local electricians in the field of monitoring and maintenance. The trainings include the following aspects:

  • General introduction into PV-systems
  • Health & Safety
  • Monitoring & data analysis
  • Preventive maintenance
  • Reactive and corrective maintenance

Furthermore, greentech will support the monitoring and assist in solving technical issues for one year. This includes the integration of the PV-plant into the monitoring portal, daily active monitoring, issue analysis and inspections as well as maintenance.

„We are proud to support this great project with our know-how“ says Jörn Carstensen, Managing Partner at greentech. “Especially in the beginning of PV-projects many challenges regarding the correct setup and a stable operation occur. We look forward to support the local staff with our knowledge and advice.”

 „The support for this initiative through the PV-industry is truly remarkable. We are pleased by the fact that greentech supports the operation and maintenance of the PV-plant in the camp. Thus, we can provide the people in Mam Rashan with a stable and clean energy supply and at the same time build important technical knowledge in the region.
