Joar Larsen and Mathias Espeland conducted a field trip to Zimbabwe in October 2016 to install a solar geyzer in Mkoba Hope centre. Their tasks included: 1. Installing two evacuated tube collectors on the roof, and a 300 litre Solar geyser on ground level. 2. Installing necessary piping from the evacuated tube collectors to the geyser, and connect the complete water heating system to the installed hot water pipes in the house. 3. Testing the installed geyser, and teaching key personnel maintenance and use of the system.
The mission is succesfuly accomplished and some follow up work is still being done from Norway by both engineers. You can read more about day to day fieldwork, challenges as well as rewards of humanitarian engineering in the final summery by Joar larsen and Mathias Espeland.
