A VC150SDD Solar Direct Drive combined vaccine refrigerator and water pack freezer was installed on the boat by our in-country partner SunInTown.
The refrigerator was fitted into a compact space and due to the activity of the boat, an innovative way to install the
solar system was required.
To capture the maximum amount of sunlight, the solar panels were mounted on the roof of the boat at a nominal
angle to best utilise the solar array regardless of the direction that the boat was travelling.
Outcomes and Benefits
The VC150SDD provides a secure cold chain, keeping vaccines cool, preventing them from being spoiled and
ensuring that life-saving medicines can now be distributed to the communities along the Brahmaputra river.
