Rockwell Industries has launched Chillermill, the world’s first chiller/freezer powered by hybrid (solar and wind) renewable energy.
The Hybrid Renewable System comprising Savonius vertical axis wind turbines, along with a solar module enables the refrigerator to run 24/7 on power stored in batteries. SolarMills are also being used in powering critical applications of defence forces, Railways and Telecom domain.
Commending Rockwell for its need of the hour technological innovation, and its new Covid-19 vaccine focussed hybrid renewable energy-driven Chillermill and the WHO certified new Covid-19 Freezer series, Jayesh Ranjan said government’s and immunization programmes rely on a complicated cold chain of freezers and temperature-controlled conditions and Rockwell has developed the much-needed refrigeration technology to address these challenges to preserve vaccine, healthcare products, and other deep-freezing applications.
Rockwell Industries is a pioneering commercial cold chain appliances manufacturer. According to the company, Chillermill will be powered by hybrid (solar and wind) renewable energy, and it will be ideal for storing vaccines including Covid-19 vaccines at the desired temperature.
The company also rolled out their new Covid-19 vaccine freezer series.
Jayesh Ranjan, Principal Secretary, Government of Telangana for the Industries & Commerce (I&C) and Information Technology (IT), formally launched the new range of Covid-19 vaccines chillers, a simple plug and play standalone unit, powered by SolarMill, a hybrid (wind & solar) energy solution, manufactured by WindStream Energy Technologies ideal for remote areas where availability of electricity is not stable.
“There are places especially, many rural hospitals and immunization sites that can’t depend on the unreliable power supply. With our new renewable energy-supported freezers/chillers, we are in a position to help the health sector overcome these challenges. Technologically they meet the strictest biosafety, biomedical needs and solve the pain points in the cold chain,” said Ashok Gupta, Managing Director, Rockwell Industries.
World Health Organization PQS certified freezer series, will be manufactured at Rockwell’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Medchal, Hyderabad
The entire system is certified by the National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education & Research (NIPER) Hyderabad.
Rockwell’s fully operational plants in Medchal, Hyderabad, can produce over 400,000 units per annum. Further, the company has earmarked an investment of Rs 50 crore towards R&D, new capacities and adding a new marketing network to its existing network of over 500 outlets.
