Netune Atlantic Agri-Tech Project



Optimisation for Commercialisation of off-grid Mobile Solar Cooling System for the NIGERIAN Agri-food Market – ‘SolTech2’

  • Netune Atlantic has been actively involved in the local and international Agricultural sector over the past seven years.
  • We have invested significantly in this sector through our Agri-Commodities trading and have worked with International Partners to deploy our first Solar powered Soltech Mobile Cold Chain Cooling Facility in a local community inAbuja, Nigeria.
  • The Soltech Cold Chain Solar Facility is making a difference in preserving fresh fruits and vegetables produced by smallholder farmers in rural communities. We have focused on the storage and preservation value-chain for the first-mile and last-mile distribution for enhanced food security.
  • Our goal is to enhance food security, extend the shelf-life of agricultural produce and enable the last-mile delivery of food to remotes areas and markets through our Mobile Solar-powered Soltech Cold Storage Technology.
  • We are currently in the MVP and Pilot Testing stage – Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 7 and the business model is viable. This system when commercialised will guarantee more income for market women through a self-sustaining business model with the barest minimum cost in healthy storage and produces preservation.
  • We are working with a team of young men and women professionals to make a difference in Clean and Renewable Energy space for Agricultural purposes with the active collaboration and support of our Technical Partners – the Centre for Sustainable Energy Use in Food Chains (CSEF) and the Institute of Energy Futures at Brunel University, London.
  • The Soletech2 Project is being funded by Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN – UK) on behalf of the UK Govt through the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Africa Innovation Awards towards the optimisation of our solar-powered Soltech Mobile Food Storage Technology for the benefit of smallholder horticulture farmers, fresh food traders and market women to trade profitably and with ease, as well as increase their incomes and livelihoods, and thus, sustainably improve the agri-food market across the country and ensuring food security in the broader Nigerian spectrum.
