Generator for children’s ward


THE Institute of Engineers PNG (IEPNG) has bought a standby generator for the Port Moresby General Hospital children’s ward.
The 110 kVA generator from Energy Power System (PNG) will be installed as a backup for the ward.
IEPNG chief executive officer Benedict Mick said they wanted to invest in children.
“We are happy to invest into the lives of the future generation,” Mick said.
“In Port Moresby, we know that the children’s ward is always crowded and there’s a lot of need and demand for medical attention, but we always have power issues.”
Mick said they hoped that the contribution would enhance the quality of the life of children and improve service at the hospital.
IEPNG Port Moresby branch president Tony Morisause said they believed in investing into the future.
Morisause appealed to all the engineers in Port Moresby to help out in the project.
Board member and chairman of Women in Engineering Finkewe Zurenuoc said they had been working on the project for three years so it was good to finish it.
“Getting the generator is part of it and the next part is to install it, so we are expecting all the engineers to support it,” Zurenuoc said.
The institution is looking forward to doing the same for the entire hospital.
