A technological novelty in solar photovoltaic generation: Potiporã, the largest shrimp farm in Brazil, part of Grupo Samaria, controlled by businessman Cristiano Maia, of Ceará, has installed and is already using the “track”.
It is a system that tracks the movement of the sun. The photovoltaic array is allowed to move as the sun moves. That is, from dawn to dusk, the panels always face the sunlight, making full use of it. This information was conveyed yesterday by Cristiano Maya himself during a meeting of industrial and agricultural businessmen.
It was also revealed that the world’s largest solar PV companies are finalizing research that will create a system that “sells solar energy 24 hours a day,” Raimundo Delfino Neto, partner and director of Santana Textiles, who dreams of using, said on Ultra-short term, solar power to drive central irrigation pivots installed on the cotton and soybean production farm in Chapada do Abode, in East Ceará.
Cristiano Maia, the country’s largest shrimp farmer, has installed and operated a massive solar photovoltaic park in Potipura, in neighboring Rio Grande do Norte, which ensures that its shrimp processing unit operates 24 hours a day, its cold rooms and cold rooms. laboratories. Putipura is a farm of approximately 2,000 hectares.
Also at the same meeting, Delfino Neto told what he saw, heard and felt at the recent Agrishow, the world’s largest agricultural fair, which took place in Ribeiro Preto (SP) last week.
He was impressed by the technology of agricultural machinery and implements produced by the Brazilian industry that was exhibited at the exhibition, whose turnover amounted to 11.2 billion R$.
Major manufacturers, such as New Holland Brazil, joined the start-ups, integrating their new technologies.
“What impressed me most was the level of accuracy of these giant and very expensive machines, which monitor crops with 100% accuracy, using satellites and drones,” he said.
Delfino Netto also explained that the high accuracy of the new spray machines displayed and sold at Agrishow, including the drones, also score at 100% accuracy, and “everything is computer controlled.”
Cristiano Maia took advantage of the meeting to inform that, from the end of this month, he will start selling Girolando bulls (a cross between the Gyr and Holstein breeds) being fattened at Fazenda 3 Irmãos, in Jaguaribe.
He declares: “There will be 300 heads at a price of 300 Brazilian riyals per Arab.”
Here comes the giga complex
Almost silently, Giga Mall is being built in the Mesjana district, a popular mall targeting the wholesale fashion sector. The project is scheduled to open in May next year.
Giga Mall is already ready 95% of its precast concrete structure. The remaining 5% will be ready by the end of this month, when a third of the entire work will be completed.
The new mall will have 70,000 square meters of built-up area.
In gross leasable area (GLA) l, not yet known, Giga Mall will have more than 1,200 operations (you can call me stores or chests), and it is estimated that it will create about 5,000 direct and indirect jobs, reports its director, Regis Tavares.
Twitter after ELON MUSK
A week after he bought Twitter for $44 billion, American billionaire Elon Musk is laughing from ear to ear.
Note: Under Musk’s leadership, her Twitter brand value has increased 85%, to $5.7 billion, according to Brand Finance, a global consultancy that has released research on the value of media brands.
In conjunction with this good news, the balance sheet for the first quarter of 2022 on Twitter, last Thursday, April 28, showed profits seven times higher than those recorded in the first quarter of last year 2021.
Google remains the leader in brand rankings, which is currently worth $263.4 billion. Twitter is only ranked 26th, but with an upward slope.
Green hydrogen in the Middle East
This week, Egypt and the UAE signed two memoranda of understanding for cooperation in the field of green hydrogen. Egyptian Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly participated in the signing of agreements providing for cooperation in the development of green hydrogen production plants in the Suez Canal Economic Zone and on the Mediterranean coast of Egypt.
One of the agreements was signed on the Egyptian side by the Suez Canal Authority, the Egyptian Sovereign Fund, the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company, the New and Renewable Energy Authority and the Hossam Allam Utilities Company. United Arab Emirates, by the energy company Masdar. The other agreement concluded by all of them except for the Suez Canal.
Through the agreements, Masdar and Hassan Allam formed a strategic partnership to advance green hydrogen production and operation at existing sites. The project should be implemented in various stages by 2030, with the goal of an annual production of 480,000 tons of green hydrogen and a generation capacity of 4 gigawatts of power.
The two countries are preparing to host two upcoming editions of the United Nations Conference on Climate Change, COP 27, in Egypt later this year, and COP 28, in 2023, in the UAE.
