LIFE ATENA PROJECT

Sustainably feeding the world is one of the greatest challenges of our time, and the first step towards reducing emissions from agriculture is to change our farming practices.

The LifeAtena Project aims to encourage a change of mentality in this sector in moving towards the electrification of agricultural machinery by introducing a new game-changing modular platform for the electrification of isodiametric compact tractors that meet the needs of specialized farmers for vineyards and orchards.

LifeAtena’s objective is to present a new technology to achieve agricultural machinery and vehicles with a zero or near-to-zero carbon footprint and consequent reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, dispersion of lubricants on the farming soil, noise pollution, protection, restoration and improvement of the quality of the environment.The real challenge is achieving all the set environmental benefits while maintaining the agricultural machines’ high technical performance, aesthetics and dimensions. LifeAtena prototypes will be built as an outcome of this project: the first electrified environment-friendly machines for heroic and specialized farming.

THE PLANT FEATURES

System features: Peak power: 432.40 kwp / Number of panels: 1880
In the image below, the values reflect the ecological footprint of photovoltaics, in particular:
-The production of total energy from the installation to date – expressed in KWh
-The total avoided carbon dioxide emission – expressed in kilograms of CO₂
-The total saved oil barrels – expressed in number of barrels
-The total number of saved trees.
MONITORING:
In support of the monitoring, two graphs indicate the performance. The 1st graph compares the theoretical and actual performance expressed in Kw . The 2nd graph indicates the "Performance Ratio", a parameter that allows to measure the efficiency and quality of the plant: it points out the actual available energy percentage.

PLASTIC FREE

Since January 2021, the company has adopted some measures from a Plastic-free perspective:
STOP plastic cups.
STOP to plastic packaging in the canteen.
STOP PET water bottles.
