SelfChill Conference & Expo Nairobi 2022

solar cooling solutions for agricultural products

The SelfChill team together with Strathmore Energy Research Centre  Nairobi and SunTransfer Kenya invites to the SelfChill Conference on March 3rd, 2022, 09:30-16:00 EAT

SelfChill is a concept for modular cooling solutions powered by solar. As core components SelfChill Cooling Units are used for the construction of a wide variety of cooling systems. An ice storage stores the energy and compensates fluctuations. The SelfChill concept enables local manufacturers, installers and entrepreneurs to construct cooling systems such as medium-scale cold rooms, milk coolers or ice makers locally and adapt the systems according to the needs of the final end-users.
Several SelfChill systems have been installed in rural Kenya for cooling milk, fish and vegetables leading to reduced post-harvest losses.
