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.

Automatic Hitching for theTotal Safety of the Farmers when Coupling machinery
Company Name SIWI MASKINER APS
Funded By 38
Country Denmark , Western Europe
Project Value 2 Million
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

Project Detail

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.

Project Detail

Commercial banking is all about assessing and pricing risk. The agricultural sector, which is prone to asymmetric shocks such as weather related events, pests and diseases, has traditionally been a risky area for bank financing. Add to that the relatively immaturity of the Myanmar banking sector, including the prevailing caps on interest rates enforced by the regulatory authorities, and it becomes evident why many players in the agricultural sector are deprived of formal access to finance. Yoma Bank and LIFT have teamed up to bridge this cap. The Agribusiness Finance Programme, which went live in January 2016, has three objectives: i) Increase mechanisation in the agricultural sector ii) stimulate savings in rural communities iii) improve agricultural productivity through access to finance The first objective is being realised by lowering the down payment farmers have to make when taking out a loan for a tractor. Instead of paying down 30% on the first day, which is customary in the market, farmers pay down as little as 10%. This allows them to buy larger equipment which generate more income. Yoma Bank use their own funds to finance these loans, while the increased risks are shared with LIFT. Moreover, LIFT pay for technical expertise to set up and manage the programme. Please click here for an illustrative video that showcases the impact the programme has had in the Delta region. Financial products for the second and third objective are still on the drawing table. Stimulating savings will likely take place via a mobile channel. With respect to the third pillar, Yoma Bank is currently analysing a number of value chains in order to determine where it is most opportune to inject finance. Access to finance will enhance productivity in the sector, thereby contributing to rural development and raise overall standards of living.
