World’s first Solar Heated Tent was built by Sonam Wanchuk, an Indian engineer, innovator, environmentalist and education reformist. In his video on YouTube, Sonam Wanchuk introduced his new invention of Solar Heated Tent For Indian army at galwan valley. Let’s know some important details and innovative ideas which he has used for building his amazing Solar Heated Tent.
As we know it’s hard to survive on mountains but hats off to those soldiers who spend most of their time on borders, no matter how harsh climatic conditions they have to face, they are ready to serve their country at any cost, even the cost of their lives.
In his interview, Sonam Wanchuk described how hard conditions army soldiers face during their duties on cold climatic mountain regions, they have to live there in typical tents which hardly saves them from extreme cold or they live in iron containers which are costly and non portable.
This inspired Mr. Sonam Wanchuk to invent a solar heated portable tent which is his 15 years old invention, he first made this Solar Heated shelter for nomadics of Kashmir. He saw that Indian army soldiers who are posted in Galwan valley in winters are facing so much trouble as the temperature of this place remains low. Thus he decided to do something to address this problem of soldiers, he started working on a passive solar heated tent project, so that soldiers could stay comfortably in harsh climatic conditions and they don’t need to use fuel for heating which harms the environment.
Let’s Look Inside The Passive Solar Heated Tent
This Solar Heated Tent is divided into two parts, first is the greenhouse part which absorbs solar heat from the sun and second is the sleeping chamber, where people could sleep at night. The part of the sleeping chamber is highly insulated and waterproof. In the daytime Greenhouse part remains warm as it obtains solar heat. The wall dividing two chambers works as a heat bank. This wall stores heat and it enables the sleeping chamber to remain warmer at night when temperature gets lower.
The walls of sleeping chamber are highly insulated that means they trap heat and resists the cold at night. Sleeping chamber section is heated by a heat bank wall, which stores maximum solar heat from the greenhouse part at day time. That’s how this amazing solar heated tent works. The cost price of this solar heated tent is around Rs. 5 lakhs or 6,891.39 us dollars.
