Kenya has always been an interesting place for Caracal to work. We have continental aspirations so when presented with the opportunity to build things in Africa we relish the challenge. Much the same as with the Seychelles there are logistical challenges as well as sourcing local expertise to assist in the execution of the projects in which we are involved.
Fortunately, working in Kenya, has thus far, been a pleasure. The people of Kenya have always been warm and accommodating of our efforts which makes working there so enjoyable. Additionally, the relative capacity of local resources is good, so the time taken to learn the systems is drastically reduced.
There was some trepidation building a single axis tracker in a remote part of Kenya, given trackers are more complicated to build and commission than a fixed tilt ground mount. Our concerns centred on how we would source labour and getting the product to site.
