Project description

One of the important pathogens destroying bee colonies is the "Varroa" mite. The project implemented by ABERIT in response to this challenge will create a bee treatment technology and a bee treatment device. The whole system will operate under the brand name "WarmHive". It will be a system based on the proven phenomenon of heating up the hive with the natural light, which will make it possible to destroy existing mites in the hive in a non-invasive way. This will increase the quality of honey production and improve the chances of bee colonies to survive. The "WarmHive" system consists of a device mounted to the hive and a platform for monitoring the hive. The project includes development work related to the elaboration, production and testing of a prototype device, as well as investment activities related to the creation of dedicated software and technical documentation allowing for the commencement of production and commercialisation of the system. In addition, construction works and those related to the implementation of modern heating solutions (RES) in the company will bring about an increase in the energy efficiency of the enterprise by 0,01 GWh in 2023, and a significant decrease in electricity and heating energy consumption, resulting in the yearly CO2 emission lesser by 4424,61 tons
