We have provided a 60 sq mtr collector area solar dryer for fish drying. In India, all the fish drying is carried out in the open sun – this takes a long time, causes contamination by dust and other pollutants and is unhygienic.

NRG has provided this dryer as an demonstration project, again with University of Mumbai, in a seaside locale with a large fishermen population, so that they can actively take free trials on the dryer. A lot of fishermen took trials of various types of fish, prawns etc in the dryer. Many of them were really impressed by the fact that the drying took only 6-7 hours instead of the usual 4-5 days in the open sun! A few of them have already approached us to help them set up similar plants for them.
