In remote places, the consistent supply of electricity from the grid is an almost daily challenge for residents and businesses alike. Following disasters, the only sources of power are usually diesel gensets. Fuel supply then becomes an issue, as does noise and pollution.
For the ANGAU Memorial Hospital at Lae in Papua New Guinea, the lack of consistent power can play havoc with the day-to-day running of the hospital. A solution was needed while the hospital mortuary was rebuilt.
Working with the Lae Hospital redevelopment team, comprising hospital personnel and Johnstaff Project Management, Black Stump has produced a solar-powered deployable mortuary with customised tray system, giving great comfort and dignity not only to hospital staff but to relatives of the deceased.
In Papua New Guinea, the consistent supply of electricity from the grid is an almost daily challenge for residents and businesses alike. For the ANGAU Memorial Hospital at Lae the lack of consistent power plays havoc with the day to day running of the hospital.
Without such consistency patient care becomes difficult and the lack of a properly supported cold storage system means that operational areas such as the Hospital mortuary and vaccine storage are placed at risk.
Working with the Lae Hospital redevelopment team comprising of Hospital personnel and Johnstaff Project Management, Black Stump has produced an innovative solution to the problem faced by the hospital. A solar powered deployable mortuary with customised tray system has now been placed at the hospital, giving great comfort and dignity not only to hospital staff but to relatives of the deceased.
Black Stump continues to work with the hospital to provide further solutions to the challenges presented by unreliable mains power.
