"The partnership of SESI and NetCon, a Washdyke-based subsidiary of Alpine Energy, won an $18.6 million Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade contract to build the off-the-grid hybrid solar-and-diesel power facility. It's intended to provide electricity to 2490 households in several suburbs of Bamiyan City. The project is expected to take at least 12 months, and would be completed by a team of about 10 international staff - mostly Kiwis - working with 15 trained Afghan engineers and about 30 tradesmen and labourers from nearby villages"
