Webinar 9 | Dec-16 | Solar powered agro processing machinery

  1. 1. PROJECT SUPPORT SERVICES
  2. 2. WHO ARE WE? • Project Support Services (PSS) established in Papua New Guinea in 2001 • Traditionally diesel agricultural machines and renewable energy – solar and biofuels • Began working on concept to “solarise” micro-mills in 2014 • Based in Papua New Guinea and China
  3. 3. WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT? • The people living off-the-grid generally depend on agriculture for their livelihood – food and income • For most, their best chance to earn money is to add value to their agricultural produce • Their current options are limited: • Manual food processing – labour intensive, low output • Small diesel powered machines – expensive, failure prone • Pay per use at larger diesel mills – high ongoing cost
  4. 4. WHAT WE DO Manufacture a range of solar powered micro-mills for processing staple foods • Powered by 24V DC motors • Low maintenance • Easy to use • 2-4 year payback • Meaningful electricity
  5. 5. SOLAR MILLS IN ACTION https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWgevfqIvdU
  6. 6. WHERE ARE WE, WHAT’S NEXT? • 1st generation machines – rice, corn, cassava, coconut, kava, coffee • 280 machines sold in 2016, mostly PNG, Indonesia and Vanuatu • 500 machine sales expected in 2017 • 2nd generation machines – 2017 field trials for rice, corn, cassava • Custom designed for solar – i.e. efficiency a premium • Smarter – PAYG ready • Re-brand company 2017 • Establish East Africa base 2018
