SOLAR STREET ILLUMINATION PROJECT
In 2015 Kash lead a project team in Maun, a remote area in Northern Botswana. Based on the client’s requirements, the outdoor solar illumination project included the supply and installation of Solar LED street lights on a cattle farm.
The overall project aim was to improve visibility on the farm, thus aiding in the protection of livestock from wild animals and cattle rustlers. The lighting which centred on the cattle pens, farm residence and loading bay areas, provided improved overall visibility on the farm.
Tasked by clients with Ostrich farms in Central Africa. Kash was able to procure and ship ostrich eggs for breeding from Oudtshoorn, a province in the Western Cape of South Africa. Supply of the eggs from the world’s ostrich capital began in 2017, lasting over 2 breeding seasons which typically run from June (winter) to February (summer).
In addition to supply of the eggs, Kash’s consulting company provided support services in the form of Farm Managers and Technicians to service the hatching equipment, prior to the commencement of the breeding season.
Due to the water shortages in Zimbabwe, this presented the opportunity in 2017 to supply and install standalone water storage systems for private residences in the capital city, Harare. Systems installed were complete with storage tanks, piping, water pumps and motors. Depending on client specifications, above ground or immiscible borehole pumps were installed. With the option of solar powered or electric pumps.
As part of a RFI by a client looking to invest and open a retail clothing chain, aimed at low income consumers in the DRC, Kash travelled to the Congo in 2018. Purpose of the trip was to conduct research and assess the feasibility of setting up a clothing retail chain in the DRC. Recommendations were made based on the research findings, the project is still ongoing.
