BUT WHY?


INDUSTRY CHANGES

Overall decrease in LPG consumption

Negative perception of LPG

Known only for ‘old-school’ domestic applications (cooking, BBQ, heating) The vision is to target small engine applications and displace traditional fuel types, increasing the LPG industry overall

Reactive instead of Proactive


Corporate video


THE MARKET ALREADY EXISTS! 12,5 Million Generators

PRODUCED PER YEAR

100 Million Small Engines


WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?


ECO FRIENDLY Environmentally friendly Fuel – less pollution

4 PHILOSOPHIES OF GREENGEAR

POWERFUL Full engine performance

CONVENIENT No messy spillages and easily connected

VERSATILE Cylinder utilisation


CYLINDER UTILISATION


SO HOW DOES IT WORK?


ENERKIT: THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR SMALL ENGINES

The heart of Greengear equipment lies in the ENERKIT technology

Engineered in house with Italian designed high quality Two series depending on Engine size


LPG RETROFIT TRADITIONAL CONVERSION SYSTEMS

VS

+

Dedicated ‘All in One’ solution for small engines

Requires additional brackets and space

No additional components needed

Many additional components needed

ENERKIT replaces the gasoline carburettor

Still requires the gasoline carburettor

Works in liquid or vapour phase

Compromises on performance


IS THERE AN EXISTING MARKET?


Partnership with Calor Gas Great Britain & Calor Ireland - UK’s largest suppliers of propane, currently servicing around 4 million homes and businesses. Largest LPG supplier in GB and Ireland Promoting generators, water pumps and pressure washers through their network Have an online shop and partner largely with the Nationwide Catering Association – who are supporting the catering industry around Great Britain.


One of the leading suppliers of LPG in cylinders and tanks in the Nordic countries Started with lawnmowers and now promoting generators through their network Focussed on environmental drivers and working with local governments and municipalities Promoting mainly the composite cylinder as a user friendly alternative


Agricultural Case Study

Agrofrost in Poland is using our LPG powered engines to run the fan in their frost prevention machines for vineyards and farming areas. Meaning sensitive ground, especially in wine regions such as Bordeaux, is not an issue with LPG. As there is therefore no chance of spillage or pollution, making a healthier crop/harvest. The whole machine is now running on LPG. The engine is powered by LPG and the frost protection burner is also powered by LPG cylinders. Therefore making running costs lower for Agrofrost due to one single fuel source and the overall added convenience.


For night frost protection in orchards for all kind of fruit, in vineyards, in greenhouses and plastic tunnels. To improve the fruit set in low temperature during blossom. To raise the temperature in plastic tunnels, to bring forward the first harvest date in the beginning of the season, or to pick later at the end of the season. Innovative new ideas using LPG Therefore making running costs lower for Agrofrost due to one single fuel source and the overall added convenience. Globally active company
