Earlier this month, two of our product application engineers from Malaysia and Singapore, visited our friends at Sunlabob’s headquarters in Vientiane, Laos. Our mission was to conduct a two day technical training session focused on off-grid and grid-tie applications. The training covered the technicalities of our hybrid inverters, solar charge controllers, and communications and monitoring devices.
This on-site collaboration equipped Sunlabob’s installers and developers with new expertise and skill sets to help manage this fast growing market. As experts in both community/rural electrification and commercial off-grid throughout Southeast Asia, India, Africa, and the Pacific, technical training delivered an added value to their ongoing achievements. “Hands-on, face-to-face training, like what Schneider has provided, is a valuable element to keeping solar developers and installers like Sunlabob up-to-date with the newest products and skillsets,” said Andy Schroeter, CEO of Sunlabob.
For us, it was also a very valuable experience. Yong-Nee Tay, regional solar sales manager in Singapore, noted “hands-on training like this is a ‘win-win’ situation. On-the-ground practitioners like Sunlabob are familiarized with cutting-edge technology, and Schneider gains valuable insight about important emerging markets such as Laos and Myanmar.”
It was a pleasure collaborating with Sunlabob and we look forward to exchanging and developing further expertise together in the bright future!
