Indian Agritech Startups To Watch Out For In 2018
Owned and operated by Thermal Energy Service Solutions Pvt. Ltd, Tessol was founded by Rajat Gupta, an alumnus of IIT Delhi and Harvard, in 2013. Rajat founded Tessol in 2013 with a vision of creating a farm to fork cold supply chain.
Rajat felt,“There was a lot of focus on energy generation, with solar and wind, but nothing was being done on the energy storage side.” He decided to dig deeper and realised that while the technology exists for thermal energy storage, it hadn’t really caught on.
Tessol’s breakthrough, as per him , is the design of a heat exchange unit that can be charged at any power outlet in about six hours. Once charged, the unit will keep the refrigerator on the reefer truck within the optimal temperature for a full-day’s operation.
