What is SelfChill?
SelfChill is an approach to locally building modular cooling solutions using sustainable, high-quality components. Our approach also includes providing training and engineering support.
How does SelfChill work?
SelfChill works with solar power to generate electricity, which is then used to run a cooling system that generates ice. The cooling energy stored in ice is delivered to different cooling solutions e.g. cold rooms to maintain a desired air temperature. The system can be customized to meet specific needs of different value chains.
Is SelfChill easy to install?
Yes, SelfChill is designed to be easy to install and maintain. Our team works exclusively with highly qualified local partners to ensure that the system is installed correctly addressing final user needs.
How much does SelfChill cost?
The cost of SelfChill can vary depending on the specific needs of each user and the size of the different cooling solution. Due to the adaptation of the technology to the local context and local added value involved, we strive to keep costs as low as possible to make our solution accessible to everyone.
Can SelfChill be used in areas without access to electricity?
Yes, SelfChill is specifically designed to work in areas without access to electricity. Our solution utilizes solar energy to power the system, making it an ideal option for regions with limited or no access to electricity.
