Solar power for Lassa Fever laboratory in Sierra Leone

Client - Local Health Authority

Bespoke Solar Power System

Dulas provided a specification for a solar power and battery back up system for electrifying a lassa fever lab within a larger clinic in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

The Solution

The system was made up of an 8.5Kw solar array with battery bank and inverter. Dulas provided an electrical distribution board which was pre-assembled beforehand so that upon installation it worked as a plug-and-play system thus making it user friendly. Our technical consultants specified use of our preferred brands including Kyocera modules, a Studer inverter, Steca controllers and BAE batteries; all chosen for their high quality and proven use and longevity in high ambient temperatures.


Ten cases were shipped via sea freight and we have received regular updates on the successful functioning of the system. As part of this project, a Dulas VC150 solar vaccine refrigerator system was also installed. Dulas has almost 30 years experience exporting solar vaccine refrigerators into the cold chain in over 50 countries worldwide.

"Dulas power systems ensure that no hospital, clinic, health centre or remote medical station need be without electricity."
