Sikubora’s engineers and personnel were excited to partner with an important project in their own neighborhood. The new United Nations Court construction across from Sikubora’s headquarters is expected to bring more activity to the area, but Sikubora initially did not expect a direct collaboration with those constructing the building. In early November, the contractors partnered with Sikubora for the installation of 11 small solar panels, 30 Watts each, in the outdoor garden of the UN Court.
Sikubora engineers had to think creatively to design the systems. Each panel is embedded in a bench, which can still be safely used for sitting, and the energy provided by the panels power lights on the sides of the benches. Furthermore, the systems have an added capability of detecting light levels. Through this feature, the solar benches automatically emit light during nighttime. The completion of the UN Court project speaks to Sikubora’s ability to provide a variety of custom solutions. Sikubora’s engineers have a knack for evaluating a site and constructing a plan to meet all of a customer’s needs.
