- March 2006: Mr. Vazja Racvieshvili spent a week in the Netherlands with Workgroup Solar Cooker Workgroup Sliedrecht NL (WSCS) learning to construct an expanded Dierx-type solar box cooker. The cooker — dubbed the BC.122 — is 122 centimeters wide, making economical use of plywood sheets of the same width. During summer tests, the cooker reached temperatures of 175°C. With tools and funds from WSCS, Mr. Racvieshvili will set up a small workshop in his village of Gurdzhaani. He believes that solar cookers can help reduce the cost of living in Georgia, a country with high unemployment. Contact: Solar Cooker Workgroup Sliedrecht NL
