Other projects were involved in the spheres of waste management, environmental preservation and training.
On the 1 July 2009 the prize-giving ceremony of the SUD Cooperation Prize took place, which in this first edition represented €7,500, of which €5,500 came from SUD, and €2,000 from Ona Capital Privat, constituted by Bon Preu and Fundició Dúctil Benito.
The ceremony took place in the Sala Sert of the ‘El Sucre’ building in Vic, with the presentation of the prize, a talk about ‘Applications of Renewable Energies in countries with limited resources’ by the engineer Pere Badia, the presentation of the projects entered and the awarding of the SUD Cooperation prize to the winning project. Also cooperating were Gramona and the Osona delegation of the Barcelona Chamber of Commerce.
The prize was for the NGO Global Humanitaria, for the project to supply drinking water to the town of Kork (Cambodia) by means of pumping water from a well with a photovoltaic solar installation. Under evaluation in the project was the work with a local organisation and the fact that with a ‘small’ action, consisting of the installation of some photovoltaic modules to pump water from an already-existing well, they managed to cover a need as basic as the supply of drinking water, and also with a big impact, since it supplies to both the hospital and the neighbouring villages.
SUD Energies Renovables offered Global Humanitaria the assessment and technical support necessary to ensure to the maximum the correct functioning of the installation, and from this dialogue and teamwork, the photovoltaic installation was completed, which has been in operation very successfully since February 2010, supplying both the health centre and the local population.
