Developing a demonstration model of a harvesting machine for wetlands

Supporting the development of a demonstration model of a new harvesting machine adapted to the environment of Danish wetlands. 

Project summary: 

Meadows and river valleys need grazing from animals or to harvest the grass that grows there since delicate flowers, such as orchids, only stand a chance of survival if the high grass around them is removed.

The project supported the development and construction of a demonstration model of a completely new harvesting machine adapted to the environment of Danish wetlands.

Project results: 
  • Created 4 new jobs in the micro company, as well as corresponding number of workplaces with local subcontractors.
  • Helped establish a network of local actors specialised in design, strength calculation, surface treatment, and mechanical innovation, which is expected to last in the future due to the expected commercial success.
  • Promoted the production of biogas.
