Our story

Your experts in solar power

Dulas first developed solar powered refrigerated blood banks and operating theatre lighting thirty years ago in war torn Eritrea, and then went on to develop the first solar powered vaccine refrigerators for use globally. This pioneering development attracted the attention of the World Health Organisation with whom Dulas worked closely to develop solar vaccine refrigerators that could meet stringent performance, quality and safety standards. These standards are still the benchmark for solar refrigeration today.

Wherever our expertise is needed, we are determined to be there and are resolved to reach every last mile. In recent times, our work has seen us respond to the Ebola crisis in West Africa, supply 982 refrigerators to the Ministry of Health in Peru, complete a solar installation at The UN Compound at Kabul Medical College, and re-equip Yemen’s cold chain after the recent violence.

Solar power innovation

Dulas is one of just a handful of providers able to meet the global demand for reliable solar powered refrigeration in medical and healthcare environments. Our solar refrigerators are used for vaccine storage and blood banking in hospitals and clinics, supporting national immunisation programmes around the world.

Our solar refrigeration technology has given us a platform for the development of other solar power solutions to serve off-grid locations and areas without reliable power, including bespoke solar installations and fuel saving PV diesel hybrids.

We are proud to say that using a Dulas designed solar power system means that no school, hospital, clinic or health centre need be without electricity. Even the most isolated location can be provided with equipment that harnesses the natural energy of the sun to deliver a reliable, clean and low-maintenance power solution.

Solar power training for a brighter future

Today, our capabilities also include on-location training to ensure cold chain technicians can make the most of our solar vaccine refrigerators and other solar power systems. Our training programme has taken us from India to Zambia and has opened up solar power’s potential to thousands of people. Our core training programme has repeatedly given cold chain technicians the confidence and capability to install and maintain solar refrigerators.

We supply equipment and follow-up training for remote power solutions across a range of sectors, including laboratories, hospitals and primary healthcare clinics. The courses usually last two weeks and are structured around a mix of classroom based lectures and practical sessions.

Bespoke courses are also available.
