Sharing his excitement about the new project, Mr. Jesal Doshi, CEO of B Medical Systems India Pvt Ltd said. “There is a difference between developing the vaccine and administering it effectively and sustainably. This is where solar direct drive vaccine refrigerators play a crucial role. These units store vaccines reliably even during periods of power outages but also rely on green and sustainable solar power.  Green cold chains are the future and we are excited to bring this product and technology to India. I am also happy that our new made-in-India vaccine transport boxes are ready for the country. These will play a critical role in successful outreach campaigns across the country. We continue working towards our vision of making India the vaccine cold chain capital of the world and the installation of these solar direct drive refrigerators across the country is a significant step towards achieving this goal and making India self-reliant when it comes to robust medical cold chain infrastructure. I would like to specially thank the Govt of India and the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare for all the support’’
