The Engineering Design and Innovation Centre of the Cape Coast Technical University has designed a solar tricycle, in a bid to contribute to the global fight against climate change.
The innovation, supported by the Energy Commission, was to boost the university’s quest to transform the automotive sector in the Central Region. The Cape Coast Technical University as part of efforts to become the automotive hub in the Central Region, has embarked on a number of solar-powered projects.
First was the auto-wash, a solar-powered hand washing machine; then a noiseless food trolley, a briquette making plant, among other solar machines developed by the university
The solar tricycle becomes the latest product by CCTU.
The difference between the CCTU tricycle and the ones in town is that, whilst all the parts of the existing ones are imported, the CCTU tricycle was developed with locally manufactured materials and has an in-built seat belt.
The Central Regional Minister, Hon. Mrs. Justina Marigold Assan was assisted by the Management of the Cape Coast Technical University and Mr. Fred Appiah, a representative of the Energy Commission, Ghana to unveil the first-ever Solar Tricycle (Pragya) in Ghana.
The Solar Tricycle was designed and produced by the Engineering Design & Innovation Centre of CCTU with support from the Energy Commission of Ghana.
In his presentation yesterday, Dr. Kwame Anane-Fenin, Director of the Centre revealed that the Solar Tricycle doesn’t only run without an engine but it is also noiseless, has WiFi, and other amazing features.
In her brief remarks, Hon. Justina M. Assan expressed her delight to have had this innovation emerging out of her Region. She pledged her full support to the Management of the University.
