St. Jude Hospital, St. Lucia. – January 23rd, 2017 – World Technology Corporation (World Tech), a preferred supplier of capital equipment for commercial and utility-scale solar systems, announced today that it has successfully supplied a custom designed solar mounting system from IronRidge to hold solar panels to the standing seam metal roofs of St. Jude Hospital, in St. Lucia Lucia.

On September 9th, 2009 a fire destroyed the St. Jude Hospital in Vieux Fort, the major medical supply institution in St. Lucia’s south.

We are also proud to take the customer from their initial design to the final delivery and installation and utilization of our 100% Made in USA Products,” notes World Technology Corporation.

It is noted that the system will contribute to over 209,110kW of solar generated electricity for consumption by St. Jude Hospital.
