The world's largest solar cooker

ADIT, avril
The Indian holy town of Shirdi boasts the world's largest solar cooker. CNN's Mallika Kapur reports.

"Gadhia Solar develops worlds first 100 tonne solar AC"
     "After installing world's largest solar steam cooking systems at Shri Saibaba Sansthan at Shirdi and creating solar crematorium, South Gujarat-based Gadhia Solar Energy Systems Pvt Ltd has developed world's first and largest solar air conditioning (AC) system. The 100 tonne AC has already been installed and soon it will be made operational..."


     Gadhia Solar, the pioneer and market leader in solar thermal energy systems, has broken its on record again by manufacturing and commissioning the Worlds largest Solar Parabolic Concentrated Technology Systems at Shri Saibaba Sansthan Trust, Shirdi. The newly upgraded system now installed at Saibaba Sansthan would cook 50,000 meals per day. It took the company 7 months to install and commission the system, which would have 25 years of life and expected payback period is 3 to 4 years.
     Mr. Badal Shah, MD, Gadhia Solar said "Honorable Cabinet Minister for New and Renewable Energy Mr. Farooq Abdullah would be inaugurating the World's largest solar cooking system   on Thursday at Saibaba Sansthan, Shirdi. Gadhia Solar is thankful to Shri Saibaba Sansthan Trust for providing the second opportunity to create the world's largest systems. We emphasize the need for interest subsidy to clients in the policy so as to encourage many more industries and institutions so that they can opt for this solar systems. Gadhia Solar Concentrated Thermal Systems have become very popular as they give fastest payback on investment."
     Gadhia Solar is an innovative solar thermal energy company, focused on providing energy solutions by using parabolic concentrated technologies, backed by technical support from HTT GmbH of Germany. The company  has the world's largest number of installed Solar Parabolic Concentrated Systems and has 20 years of experience in the field.
     Gadhia Solar provides different applications like Concentrated Solar Thermal Power Packs from 1KW to 100MW, Concentrated Solar Air Conditioning and Heating Systems, Concentrated Solar Process Heat for Systems for Various Industrial Applications, Concentrated Solar Waste Water Evaporation Systems, Concentrated Solar Desalination Systems, Concentrated Solar Space Heating Systems and Concentrated Solar Drying Systems to cater to industrial needs.

     "We would like to encourage companies in the country to go for clean Concentrated Solar Energy instead of conventional energy. Industries like IT, Pharmaceuticals, Universities etc can benefit largely by use of Concentrated Solar Energy. IT and Pharmaceutical industry can fulfill their respective Air Conditioning, back up power generation and Steam needs through Concentrated Solar Energy" Mr Badal emphasized.
     "For example, IT major like IBM office in Bangalore is satisfactorily using Concentrated Gadhia Solar Technology, installed by Gadhia Solar recently on 5th June, the World Environment Day. Dayalbagh University has also gone with Solar Parabolic Concentrated Technology just like Shri Saibaba Sansthan Trust. There is huge opportunity for IT, Pharmaceutical companies, Universities and other educational institutions to adopt the cheaper, non-polluting and yet effective Solar Parabolic Concentrated Technology" he added.
     Badal Shah further said, "We have plans for setting up a 100 MW Solar Concentrated Thermal Power Plant in Kutch, Gujarat. Also, we are very enthusiastic about the 100 ton Solar Concentrated Air Conditioning System project, which is in the final stage of commissioning for a Cancer Hospital in Gujarat."
     Remarkably, Gadhia Solar has manufactured and installed Solar Parabolic Concentrated Systems at world's highest place in Ladakh for Indian Army, breaking the myth that climate temperature needs to be higher for the solar systems to work efficiently. "The system would work more efficiently even in -40°C temperature with high altitudes and clear sky (which is the case is Ladakh) than in areas like Kerala, which is at low altitude where the direct radiation of the solar energy is not sharp." said Badal Shah.
     Since its inception, Gadhia Solar has been technologically, solution focused company driven by strong passion for environmental and social contribution combined with high creativity and integrity. Using the power of sun as source of energy, Gadhia Solar has implemented some of the worlds largest solar thermal systems in last two decades. Be it industrial, agricultural, institute or domestic.
