Recently, Suryodaya completed a 500-kg-scale prototype near Bellary and a 2000-kg prototype near Navalgund, Karnataka. With these two prototypes, Suryodaya plans to conduct further product testing and design refinement, to pilot a drying-as-a-service and nursery business model and deploy more A3S pilots in the coming year.
