India's First Solar Powered Ferry - Aditya

First Solar Powered Ferry Aditya

Sandith Thandasherry is the man behind India's first solar powered ferry, Aditya. His company Navalt has manufactured Aditya in India right from scratch! This 75 seater ferry was launched on 12th January, 2017.

Aditya can travel at a maximum speed of 7.5 knots (10 KM/HR) while causing zero air, water or noise pollution. It also has zero fuel costs while conventional ferries have fuel costs of up to 30.37 lakh per annum.

Kerala will soon deploy many more of these solar boats and we hope other states will follow.
