“Given the essentiality of power in every sphere of society, and its pertinent need in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, KAPSCO was able to play a key role in supporting the efforts of the Kaduna State Government in curbing the spread of the virus in the state.
Through collaborative efforts with Arnergy Power Solutions, All-on and Rotary club of Kaduna, we were able to provide two 5kVA solar systems to the Infectious Disease Control center (IDCC) in Kakuri. In doing this, we were able to help provide constant power to the facility for critical medical equipment such as the Ventilators.
Also, the IDCC had not been connected to the National grid prior to March 2020. However, we were able to secure a donation of a 100kVA transformer from our Partners – skipper Nigeria Ltd to connect the IDCC to the National grid.
We also worked with the Ministry of Health and the Kaduna State Facility Management Agency to secure and install a bigger generator at the IDCC to serve as back up source of power. We left no stone unturned in ensuring that power was provided to the center.
KAPSCO worked with Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company to reconnect the isolation center at Hamdala motel. The motel had been disconnected by Kaduna Electric, but upon its usage as an isolation centre for those infected by the virus, we ensured that they would not be without power.
