Business Finland Veturi Challenge
Ponsse, a leading manufacturer of forest machinery, and its technology company Epec, have together launched a project called FORWARD´27 which aims to significantly reduce the emissions and environmental impact of mobile work machinery used in forestry and other heavy industries.
Forestry, agriculture, mining, and construction are critical resources to our society. The newly launched FORWARD´27 project aims to reduce the emissions and environmental impact of mobile work machinery used in forestry and other heavy industries.
How we reached the goals
Spinverse funding experts worked together with Ponsse and Epec in the second phase of project proposal process for Business Finland funding, helping the project team in crystallising the FORWARD’27 mission and objectives. Upon a positive funding decision from Business Finland, Spinverse now supports FORWARD’27 in setting up the project by means of project management, ecosystem leadership and communications.
The project is set to find solutions for this challenge by developing novel technologies focusing on autonomous solutions, sustainable power, digitalisation, sustainable materials, and supply chain.
Impact of the project
The solutions developed in FORWARD’27 aim to reduce the emissions and environmental impact of mobile work machinery in forestry and other heavy industries.
