Portable inflated solar power cold storage house technology as a supporting facility to increase the production and marketing of fishery fishermen.Indonesia is a maritime country and fourth largest fish exporter in the world. Currently Indonesia exported fish worth around 35,4 billion US dollars in 2012 and continue to rise. The post -catching is the most important aspect of the process to ensure the fish quality will be meeting the standard export. Most of the post-catching process is a home industry based and fridge/freezer had been used to store the fish before sending them to the exporter for further process. Therefore, paper presents the design and development of the Solar Power Cold Storage House for the fishermen. The general purpose is to support production facilities for cheaper alternative which increasing the fishermen profitable for the mass production. The research purpose is to developed a prototype Portable Inflated Solar Power Cold Storage House as a production support facility and fishery marketing that meets aspects of strength, speed, effectiveness, convenience, so that Portable Inflated Solar Power Cold Storage House products also increase the absorption of National Fish. The paper will describe the design process, testing process such as material strength, rapid deployment of the cold storage, environment test and mechanical test.
