Electric Generator Recovered – Thank Japan Self-Defense Force –

In Juba, the capital city of South Sudan, Electric Public Corporation provides electricity to people. However, black out has frequently happened and the electricity is provided only 2-3hours in a week in recent one year. Thus JEN produces necessary electricity for the office by our own electric generator. Neverthless the electric generator worn out and did not work properly those days.

One day, some members of Japan Self-Defense Force (JSDF) visited JEN office. We just mentioned the unwell generator and a mechanic in JSDF offered check up the generator at that time.

They skillfully took off very small parts. They disassembled parts which had not been broken up when local mechanic had checked up for the failure those days.



The cause of the failure was dirty detailed parts which had not been checked up by local mechanics. JSDF mechanic polished very well the detailed parts exposed to fugitive dust every day.

After the maintenance, the power generator started working very well again.

We highly appreciated JSDF for working under the scorching burning sun. JEN would use this power generator carefully from now on.
