CORRIDORS MANAGEMENT PLAN FOR THE RING OF GROWTH IN WEST AFRICA (WAGRI-CACAO) 1. TITLE OF THE PROJECT: Agricultural Mechanization and Hydraulic Sector Support Development Project 2. COUNTRIES OF INTERVENTION: Burkina Faso 3. AREA OF INTERVENTION: National Territory 4. AREAS OF INTERVENTION: Agriculture 5. Strategic focus of the master plan: Button A: Promote and encourage market-oriented economic sectors in the sub-region by harnessing the potential of economic sectors and targeting sub-regional markets 6.JUSTIFICATION OF THE PROJECT: Based on the Governments stated desire to promote family farms and agropoles, taking into account the needs and aspirations of water development, access to land, agricultural equipment and inputs, the Government intends to breathe new life into the mechanization process in the next five years. Agricultural machinery has revolutionized agriculture and continues to do so today. Some of the largest increases in total factor productivity ever observed in the agricultural sector have been achieved only through the introduction of agricultural machinery. Agricultural mechanization is a central and indispensable pillar for improving the efficiency and productivity of all other elements used for cultivation, such as seeds, fertilizers, water, labor and time. In view of the low rate of agricultural mechanization in Burkina Faso, the question of the modernization of farms by setting up assembly units and performing maintenance workshops for tractors is one of the departments priorities. To this end, the National Company of Land and Rural Equipment Development (SONATER) has started the development of a new project called Agricultural Mechanization Development and Support Project Phase 2 (PDMA). -SSH, PHASE 2). 7. MAJOR STAKEHOLDERS Project Manager: STATE, Private Sector Project management: SONATER Beneficiaries: Agricultural producers, agricultural service providers Other stakeholders: - maintenance and repair workshops; - workshops manufacturing spare parts; - Technical and Financial Partners (TFPs); - Professional Agricultural Organizations (OPA); - the private sector and NGOs; - the other ministerial departments (in charge of industry and commerce, in charge of scientific research and innovation, in charge of youth and vocational training). Coordination and monitoring-evaluation The follow-up of the project will be ensured both by the Project Management Unit and by the external structures involved in the implementation of the project. Joint supervision, monitoring and mid-term review missions will be organized during project implementation. A monitoring-evaluation manual will be developed to identify relevant indicators and define monitoring procedures. In this manual, two types of monitoring will be advocated: internal monitoring and external monitoring. Internal monitoring will be carried out by the project management unit using the dashboards developed for this purpose. Periodic activity reports (quarterly and annual) will be produced. External monitoring will be done in collaboration with the development management and coordination systems available at the national level and will also take into account the specific concerns of the technical and financial partner. Information collected through monitoring and evaluation will inform knowledge management activities, identify and share good practices, identify problems and constraints, and promote continuous improvement of the projects contribution. implementation of national policies. 8.

This webpage provides general information about the project as well as current information on construction activity and related impacts on local traffic. EXPAND ALL | COLLAPSE ALL Overview and Schedule NEED for the project: The Feeder Line 122 Capacity Enhancement Project project is necessary to keep pace with increased demand for natural gas due to customer growth. It will also enhance our ability to continue providing safe, reliable natural gas service by making our system easier to monitor and maintain. LOCATION: The section of FL122 slated for replacement is located in West Bountiful, Centerville, Farmington, Kaysville and Layton. It runs from Porters Lane in West Bountiful north to Gentile Street in Layton. Some of this section was completed last year. (See map for exact route.) CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULE: To expedite construction, multiple crews will be working simultaneously at various locations during the project. Crews may also work at night and on weekends. Allowing for weather and other demands, construction is scheduled to begin in January 2019 and continue through 2019. To provide room for crews and equipment, some temporary lane restrictions and road closures can be expected in work zones. Every effort will be made to maintain access to businesses and driveways in construction zones at all times. No interruption to residents natural gas service is anticipated during this project. QUESTIONS: For questions, concerns, additional information, or to sign up to receive weekly construction updates, call the Feeder Line 122 information line at 801-324-5521.

To accomplish this, some work may be performed at night and on weekends. This will reduce impacts on morning and evening commutes. We will adhere to all county noise-reduction ordinances. Canyon Pipeline has more than 40 years experience in 39 states building pipelines in urban settings. Construction Zones For pipe buried beneath streets or highways, construction may require intermittent closures of one or more lanes of traffic. Driveways also may be occasionally blocked by excavation work, otherwise they will be plated to maintain access during business hours and at night and on weekends. Before construction starts in front of any home or business, a representative will contact the owner or resident to discuss options for maintaining driveway access. Signs notifying the public that businesses remain open during construction are available. To finish construction on schedule and as quickly as possible, the project is divided into sections, or "spreads." This allows multiple crews to work simultaneously at different locations. Work zones can range from a single intersection to several blocks long. At any one location the amount of time to cut pavement, install new pipe and replace asphalt can range from several days to several weeks. The public can do its part to ensure construction proceeds safely and on time by finding alternative routes, driving carefully in construction zones and keeping children away from construction sites. Dominion Energy works closely with city and state transportation officials to ensure safety and minimize inconvenience to drivers and pedestrians. However, for public safety it may be necessary to temporarily close streets and sidewalks or restrict vehicle and pedestrian traffic. As mentioned, driveways may occasionally be blocked by excavation work. We will make every effort to keep these inconveniences as brief as possible. Your patience is appreciated. If you have questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact us. Steps During Construction Following are brief descriptions of the steps involved in pipeline removal and construction: Locate buried utilities - The area below city streets can be a maze of underground utilities. To avoid damaging these facilities, a procedure known as potholing is used prior to trenching to identify the exact vertical and horizontal location of existing infrastructure, including the pipeline to be replaced.. Move existing utilities - Before trenching (see next step), all water and natural gas service lines that cross the existing pipe will be moved to a lower depth. This will minimize the risk of interrupting water- or gas-service to individual homes or businesses once actual construction begins. Dig trench - After the pipe has been located and purged of gas and service lines in the trench zone moved, the pavement above the existing pipe is cut and removed. Then equipment is brought in to dig the trench. The depth of the natural gas pipeline trench will be determined by the location of the existing pipe and other utilities. As the trench is dug, the soil is loaded into trucks and hauled away for disposal in a designated landfill. Remove old pipe - Sections of pipe to be removed are cut into lengths, lifted from the trench, loaded onto trucks and hauled away for proper disposal. Deliver and "string" new pipe - New pipe is manufactured and inspected to ensure it meets industry and federal safety standards. Pipe sections are then delivered by truck to the construction site where they are placed end-to-end (or "strung") on skids adjacent to the trench. If necessary, a hydraulic machine bends pipe sections to fit around obstacles or conform to the direction of the trench. Weld new pipe together and coat - Welding crews join the sections of pipe together into a continuous length. Each welded joint is visually inspected, x-rayed and then coated for protection. Lower pipe into trench - Using one or more tractors, crews lift and then carefully lower the welded sections of pipe into the trench. Final welds are made to "tie-in" any unconnected sections. Backfill trench - Under streets, in place of the removed soil, a mixture known as "flowable fill" is used to backfill the trench. In other areas, the original soil is replaced. Pressure test new pipe - After its buried and before its put into service, the entire length of new pipe is hydrostatically tested to ensure the integrity of the system. This is done by filling the pipe with water, pressurizing the system above its maximum operating conditions and holding the pressure for a specified time. The pipe is drained, cleaned and dried before put into service. Clean-up and restore ROW - The final step is to repair the surface over the trench. If necessary, fences or sod may also be replaced. Directional bore - At some busy intersections, most water crossings and under major roads, instead of trenching, crews will install pipe by boring horizontally underneath the road, stream or canal. The boring machine drills a hole from one side of the road or stream. Pipe is strung on the other side and then pulled back through hole. Pipeline Safety We take safety seriously. Since its founding in 1929, our company and its affiliates have engaged in every phase of natural gas service, from production and gathering to transportation and distribution. During that time, while delivering the clean and efficient natural gas our customers rely on daily for their comfort and livelihood, we have earned an enviable record for safety and reliability.

At the time of soil management for cultivation, herbicides have become one of the most significant advancements. Despite its useful side, herbicides are well known at the present to be enormously pollutant for soils and watercourses as well as crops. Nowadays, innovation on the field of undesired weeds removal is based on the search of less harmful methods as mechanical rotary herbicides or rotary cultivators that, at the same time, present some disadvantages: due to the discs shape they provoke compaction of the soil underneath causing floods and dewatering of lowers layers, as well as present a lot of resistance when moving due to their disc shape and materials, moved thanks to the engine power transmission shaft in a very slow and inefficiently way, provoking a big waste of fuel and associated GHG emissions. CAVALLERETTI, and Italian company from Ferrara, has invented a revolutionary system based on a patented and long-lasting cultivator discs, rollers cut and general design performing an efficient cultivation of the soil for planting bedding. LICE cultivator allows a fast work increasing the speed four times (from 5 kmts. to 20) saving the 30% of fuel, therefore decreasing the level of GHG emissions and saving money, preventing floods and avoiding the use of chemical herbicides and fertilisers as it turns the removed and chopped weeds in organic compost. LICE is expected to bring to the company in the 5 ys. after full commercialization a total accumulated turnover of €28M, with a profit of €8,7M, a R.O.I. of 4,8 and a positive impact regarding employment with 26 job creation. It has to be said that global tractor machinery market sales figure is forecast to reach 2,8 thousand tractor units by 2023 growing at a CAGR of around 5% accompanied with a big demand and exigence of a growing sector that needs more sustainable and efficient tools.

Project Detail

Hydrogen is an energy carrier with great potential for clean, efficient power in transport applications. Hydrogen can be obtained from different sources, which in combination with fuel cells it can improve energy efficiency especially when hydrogen is produced by renewable energy sources. The action proposed tries to introduce hydrogen as an alternative fuel in the port industry. The H2Ports project is an Action aligned with the needs and objectives of the European Commission and the port industry. The aim is to provide efficient solutions to facilitate a fast evolution from a fossil fuel based industry towards a low carbon and zero-emission sector. Hydrogen has been proved in other logistics and transportation sectors as a solution to power machinery and vehicles, therefore the action proposes different pilots to bridge the gap between prototypes and pre-commercial products: • The first prototype will comprise a reach stacker powered with hydrogen and tested under a real life trial, in a Port Container Terminal. • The second prototype will comprise a yard tractor equipped with a set of fuel cells. The design will enable the tractor to perform different operations like container horizontal transport or ro-ro loading/unloading operations. • The third prototype will comprise a mobile Hydrogen supply station, which will provide the needed fuel under the appropriate thermodynamic conditions for guaranteeing the continuous working cycles of the abovementioned equipment. The H2Ports project would also have a transversal objective that consists on developing a sustainable hydrogen supply chain at the port, coordinating all actors involved: customers, hydrogen producers, suppliers, etc. The expected results of the project are to test and validate hydrogen-powered solutions in the port-maritime industry, with the aim of having applicable and real solutions without affecting to port operations while producing zero local emissions.

Project Detail

The penetration of automation in the agricultural industry is forging ahead. Yet, the process of changing and hitching trailed implements, a key operation that every farmer performs many times per day, remains manually operated, as it was 50 years ago. Due to this, 40% of farmers deaths in farms are the result of being crushed by machinery such as tractors or implements, with fatal farms accidents costing to the EU society €923 million/year. The need for an automated, strong and reliable hitch system has never been greater. Listening intently to the needs of our customers, we invested 3 years of R&D to develop industry’s first fully automated hitch system. Our game-changing technology is 10x times better than closest substitutes and allows farmers to hitch their heaviest implements from tractor’s cabin, in less than 30sec. This redefines farm operations, enabling farmers to use only 1 tractor instead of 4 which is the current way of working, and brings huge cost savings enabling farmers to recoup their investment in our product in less than 258 working hours. Currently, our patent protected technology is at TRL6, with the system being optimised in our Danish facilities. With a feasibility plan developed under a Ph1 grant, we now seek a Ph2 grant to fine-tune our industrial-grade high pressure connection system and optimise our Machine Module to certify it for transport on public roads as per TÜV. Also, we will patent our new Machine Module and fully certify our systems for strength, reliability and safety. To speed-up market launch, we will showcase our products to key customers who have already expressed their interest. This will allow us to launch our products in Europe, Japan, Australia, Canada and the US, growing our business by €24 million in cumulative net profits by 2025. This cash-flow is vital to build our new facilities to meet market demand and continue improving our products, ultimately generating 18 new jobs in SIWI production and sales activities

The pace of innovation has never been greater in Precision Agriculture. Yet, a key operation that all farmers perform as it is the process of lifting Ag-machines through the use of a jack, still remains manually operated. Manual jack operation is a big contributor to agriculture’s high fatal injury rate, i.e. 12 fatal injuries/100,000 workers. With the total annual cost of fatal injuries estimated €962 million/per year for EU’s economy, the need of farmers for an automated solution that increases their safety has never been greater. Hence, our customers, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) of Ag-machinery, in their effort to upgrade their product offering to farmers, urgently need a fully automated agricultural jack with enhanced safety features. More so, they require the new jack solution to be fully compatible with the ISOBUS protocol, the communication protocol for tractors and Ag-machines. We at SIMOL, after years of R&D, developed Novel Jack the first fully automated jack in the market. Novel Jack is equipped with an innovative safety monitoring system, supported by active and passive safety procedures optimised for fast response. Novel Jack spots a dedicated ISOBUS module that will enable OEMs to easily integrate Novel Jack with their Ag-implements; hence ensuring wide market adoption. Novel Jack is at TRL-6, with the system being optimised in our facilities. With a feasibility plan developed under a Ph-1 grant, we now seek a Ph-2 grant of €1 million to advance Novel Jack to TRL-9. The final outcome of this project will be a fully automated jack certified for its’ mechanical performance and ISOBUS compatibility to industrial standards. To speed-up commercialisation, we will showcase our product to world’s biggest OEMs that have shown great interest in our technology. Through Novel Jack commercialisation in Europe and USA, we will grow our business by €14.5 million in gross revenues and €5.1 million net profits generating a total of 23 jobs, by 2025.

Improving resource efficiency through a protective film for hose reel irrigation
Company Name IRRILAND SRL
Funded By European Union
Country Italy , Western Europe
Project Value 2 Million
Project Detail

Hose reel irrigation systems are a type of sprinkler irrigation that is portable and adapts to fields irregularly shaped or with obstacles. Farmers are increasingly demanding hose reel irrigators with long hoses (up to 1,000 m) but the high friction between the hose and the ground is troublesome and make it necessary to use heavy tractors and thick hoses. The energy for pumping water (and hence operation costs, fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions) directly depends on the thickness of the hose. Breakdowns and lifespan are also related to friction because it is the responsible for traction efforts on the hose and wear and tear. Irriland has over 24 years of experience in automatic hose reel irrigators, being one of the world leaders in the sector. In 2013, and based on the client’s feedback, Irriland started developing PROTECTOR. This is a disruptive and robust technology which, neither adding difficulties nor delaying the process, reduces 90% of friction between the hose and the ground. The energy consumption is therefore reduced (around 22% for pumping water and 40% for deploying and removing the hose) as well as greenhouse gas emission (around 20%). Half the plastic is used in hoses, which turn more manageable and double their lifespan (20 years instead of 10). At the same time, all breakdowns caused by tractor efforts are avoided and irrigation is possible in more conditions (rainy times, muddy grounds, etc.). We have patented our technology in our main target markets and 22 irrigation systems sellers or farmer have explicitly shown their interest in the project. With PROTECTOR we forecast an accumulated sales revenue of € 10 million by 2024 with net profits of € 3.5 million by that same year. Our headcount will increase with 26 new direct jobs and we will consolidate our position in irrigation and will lead the way towards more efficient and sustainable hose reel irrigation.
