Army uses ‘Made in Nagaland’ hydroger at Indo-Pak border

Dimapur, October 8: The Nagaland Empowerment of People through Energy Development (NEPeD) installed its ‘Made in Nagaland’ product – Hydroger of 3 KW – at an army camp located at a remote place in Jammu & Kashmir’s Leh Ladakh region. The hydroger generates power from running water from any water source.

The hydroger was manufactured at a Dimapur-based Centre of Excellence for Renewable Energy Studies (CERES), an IIT Roorkee’s Alternate Hydro Energy Centre, to light up the army camp in Drass sector near the Tiger Hill, which became famous during the Kargil War, in the Line of Control (LoC) that divides India and Pakistan, as stated in the Nagaland Post.

Indian Army’s 14 Corps (Leh-Ladakh) chief engineer Brigadier SP Yadava sought the help of the NEPeD as transporting diesel for generators was a major logistical burden for the soldiers deployed at the icy and freezing heights from altitudes ranging from 12,000 feet to 20,000 feet in the area, the Nagaland Post further stated.
