World-renowned Ladakh-based engineer & education reformist Sonam Wangchuk has built a solar-powered military tent for the Indian Army at the Galway Valley.
Wangchuk built a tent that could accommodate 10 jawans and is fully portable with the weight of the tent being less than 30 kilos.
Wangchuk revealed on Twitter that his tent could sustain even under sub-zero temperatures such as minus 14 degrees Celcius.
In one photograph, he points out that it was carbon neutral, replacing kerosene and tackling pollution.
In another tweet, Wangchuk thanked people for their ‘overwhelming response to Ladakh’s little gift for Indian Army.’
He also said that ‘To answer your Qs about how it works I’m releasing a video at 11am on my YouTube channel.’
