Golchha Group is helping a team of students named 'Shireto' from Thapathali Engineering Campus who are building an electric vehicle (EV) from scratch.
They are building the EV not for transportation purposes but to submit to an international competition that is scheduled for September.
Till date, the team has only constructed the chassis. According to the Shireto team, due to the internal college examinations, construction of the outer frame of the EV has been postponed.
The name 'Shireto' that the team has chosen for itself might amuse a few people. According to the team, the name is derived from the Nepali word for cold wind that appeared due to the change in weather when the team initiated their work.
That means their work is dedicated metaphorically upgrading the speed of the vehicle with the change of weather that ran only a few kilometres per unit of electricity.
Cell Energy organises marathons in American, European and Asian countries, where vehicles that run on electricity, petroleum and hydrogen fuel compete against each other.
The vehicle that provides more mileage using the least amount of energy wins the top position in the competition.
Shireto team consists of 10 students from 3rd year of Bachelors in Electrical, Automobiles and Electricals majors. They are being guided by faculty advisor Subodh Kumar Ghimire.
Following advice and suggestions Mechanicals student Saugat Pandey, Dhan Prasad Pradhan and Ojashwi Sharma, Mechanicals student Anil Khadka, Aman Shrestha, Yugen Maharjan, Bhuvaneshwar Dahal and Vivek Poudel along with Electronics and Communication student Swarnim Shrestha have been working their best on the production of the EV.
Golchha Group has been contributing necessary help for this project under their corporate social responsibility initiative. Golchha Group has always appreciated and supported in the pursuit of newer advancements in human society.
