Project Time: 2019
Installation Site: Djibouti
Project Capital: US$ 1.2 million
Configuration: 60W solar street light with hanging gel battery.
The client awarded a contract for lighting up a road from one city to another city. The road width is about 14m for two-way lanes and 7 meters for a one-way lane. In the beginning, the client was worried about LED lamp resistance of water because he has suffered from aftersales for products purchased and installed from the other supplier. He used their lamps for two years but their lamps were not good in waterproof. Due to the moist air in the rainy season and dust in the dry season, the LED chips had been damaged and some lamps had failed to work. He emphasized the unpleasant experience with the bad performance by other brands, which costs a lot of extra maintenance work and the end-user complained a lot.
Based on his request, we recommended our IP68 waterproof LED model with Lumileds chips efficiency 170lm/watt or more. The factory did a test by submerging the lamp completely in water; in the meantime, we had also tested in the factory lab for LM79. The client was surprised by the quality of our product. Without hesitation, he agreed on this model and signed the contract of solar street lights we had discussed for weeks. As this project is a UN project, he had to deliver under UN contract requirement in time, otherwise, he will be fined and lost his reputation as well. To help him achieve delivery on time, SOKOYO had gathered all team members involved in different departments to discuss what and how to do to make sure stable material quality but also ensure to finish all components of solar lights much earlier. After 20 days of production and 30 days shipping time, the LED road lamp had finally arrived installation site. It took about 15 days for clients to finish all installation. Before that, we suggested clients prepare concrete and install the foundation kits first in order to lift the steel pole directly once the other system parts were ready on site. The UN inspection was very successful and bright among the best clients had ever seen. We received a testimonial from clients: "SOKOYO is the best partner I work with for solar street lights."
