Sunil Dissanayake, Director/Chief Executive, BMICH accepted the E- trikes on behalf of BMICH.

A fleet of four electric three wheelers powered by solar energy was deployed for the use of the visitors to BMICH recently. These electric three wheelers, named as E- trikes are part of a Korean Energy Agency’s assistance to Sri Lanka through the Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority of the Ministry of Power & Energy.

The project was designed to utilize the existing solar PV installation at BMICH to operate an electric vehicle charging station. The four E- trikes will be initially used to provide in- compound transport to visitors, as BMICH is a facility which spans a large extent of land.
