30% to 50% of India’s perishable agricultural produce gets wasted due to the lack of cold storage facilities at the farm level. The presence of cold storage will avoid this wastage and at the same time ensure a significantly higher quality to the end consumer.
Apart from the capital costs of cold storage the other significant aspect that holds up the introduction of cold storage is the lack of regular power supply. To combat often long power cuts, diesel generators are used which not only significantly increase operating costs but also bring with it a host of problems including:
Tribi's TChill is a comprehensive solution that provides a cost effective, eco-friendly alternative to using diesel generators to run cold rooms. It enables the cold rooms to be operated using power from a battery by controlling the starting current of the equipment during power cuts. It further optimizes the battery bank thus making it more efficient and effective. It also enables the cold rooms to be powered by a clean, renewable source of energy such as solar, fuel cells etc. Tribi's TChill can be retrofitted into single-phase cold rooms used in most locations thus keeping the investment cost to a minimum.
