Kiritimati Island Energy Sector Programme
Infratec has delivered 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 has centralised the power system for Kiritimati, providing a more reliable, efficient and safe electricity supply for the island. The 150kW solar system has reduced 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 was completed in April 2018.
