Infratec is delivering European Development Fund contract to design, supply and install a HV network, two power stations and a 150kW solar PV system on Kiritimati Island in the Republic of Kiribati.
The project will centralise the power system for Kirimati, providing a more reliable, efficient and safe electricity supply for the island. The 150kW solar system will reduce the islands demand on expensive diesel.
Kiritimati Island, in Kiribati’s Line Islands group, is the world’s largest coral atoll and the largest of the 33 islands in the Republic of Kiribati. The island is approximately 3,300 km east of Kiribati’s capital, Tarawa.
The project is expected to be completed in March 2018.
