Kerala State Inland Navigation Corporation (KSINC) has launched Sooryamshu, India’s first solar-powered tourist boat that can produce 27 KW of energy. Along with generators, the boat comes equipped with solar panels that will provide about 75% of its energy needs. The boat was built in Sri Lanka at a cost of Rs. 3.95 crores. KSINC plans to offer two tour packages, including kayaking and sightseeing, with the Sooryamshu. However, the Kadamakkudy package’s launch will be delayed due to low-lying cables from the Kerala State Electricity Board, hindering the boat’s smooth passage on some parts of the route.
