SOCIAL HOUSING MOZAMBIQUE

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Eco Terra Invest Ltd (ETI) and FFH - Fundo para o Fomento de Habitação signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the objective to implement 10,000 affordable homes in Mozambique, as part of the Government’s major plan to build 100,000 homes between 2010 and 2014. This housing plan was aimed to reduce the actual demand and provide low-income earners and lower middle class with better living standards and higher quality of life.


The 2013 project, of 10,000 homes, was to be implemented in stages, in different locations, as defined by FFH and shown in Table below. Each site was to  become a complete independent and self-sustainable settlement (Village) which would include houses, apartment blocks, main access road, streets, water supply, sanitation, surface water drainage, renewable power supply, power distribution, street illumination, and provision of areas for community buildings, private industrial and commercial activities.


The power supply, on a Micro Smart Grid type concept of renewable energy, was recommended as a sustainable and low carbon solution for the power generation on each site, and its implementation was to be considered on sites where the national power grid is not available or is not having the capacity for the additional power load required by the village. 


This project was offered taking into consideration all stages of Our Services 


Due to various reasons the project was put on hold and it is being reconsidered presently.

HOTELS MANAGED & SOLD

OWNERSHIP & MANAGEMENT OF HOTELS

The opportunity to own and manage the first Hotel came with a Client that needed accommodation for their staff in a remote part of Portugal where there were no such infrastructures.


Aparthotel do Castro was totally designed and conceived with the objective to give the Staff of the Client amenities that could later, once the exclusive period of rental was finished, be continued to serve the general public as a Tourism destination, therefore with apartments, swimming pool, gymnasium, restaurant, etc.


With courtyards of green plantations and kids playground, this unit was a tremendous success for many years, and it is still being operated after it was sold, back in 2010.


Seeing a niche opportunity in the UK market for 'Small Luxury Hotels', both Chauntry House Hotel and Homewood Park Hotel were acquired and Managed from 1988/9 to 2006 very successfully by Alan Moxon our Managing Director, that has a long history of managing these type of Hotels and Restaurants as well as larger and more complex infrastructures of Hotels and SPA Leisure Amenities.


Our experience in these type of properties is considerable and in line to become again an objective of this company.

220 MW in 7 WIND FARM PARKS | CEARÀ-BRAZIL

PORTFOLIO OF 220MW OF WINDFARMS

In 2005 the HLC Group setup Jantus Limited (“Jantus”), which purchased the shares in a Brazilian wind development company, SIIF Energies do Brazil (“SIIF”) with a total of 207 MW of capacity with granted PPA's from Electrobas and circa 800MW of various other projects not granted PPA's.It also owned another 48 MW-Rosa dos Ventos fully developed with 13MW of granted PPA's from Electrobras, totalling 220MW of fully granted PPA's.


The wind projects had been developed over a 5-year period by SIIF with the close management and support its parent, EDF Energies Nouvelles (EDF EN”), a 50%-owned subsidiary of the Electricité de France (EDF). EDF EN sold SIIF for reasons related to the flotation of EDF shares.


All five SIIF and two Rosa dos Ventos wind farms are located in the northeast of Brazil and benefit from highly favourable wind speeds ranging from 7.7 to 9.4 meters per second, ranking them among the top sites in the world for wind energy production.


The projects had all necessary permits, leases and licenses, and all connection, transmission, and distribution contracts had been signed.


The total investment of the 220MW (7 wind farms) was 400 Million Euros and Equity (20%) and Debt (80%) were raised with a Group of Investors incorporating Citi Bank, Liberty Mutual and BRAM-Black River Asset Management


This Portfolio of Assets was divested after the Financial Crisis of Lehman Brothers.

INTRODUCING A NEW MASTER PLAN FOR A SITE IN PORTUGAL

COMBINING ECO-TOURISM WITH EDUCATION & AGGROTECH

Almada d’Ouro was granted planning permission in 2007 for a 5 star golf, residential and leisure development opportunity on a stunning 240 hectares (600 acres) site, with over 1.5 kilometres of river frontage on the Guadiana River in the Eastern Algarve in Portugal.The whole development site is owned by Noblelink Limiteda UK company, whose sole business interest is the Almada D’ Ouro Land that after a lengthy and complex programme of land assembly, acquired the entire 600 acre site from over 3,500 individual landowners

There have been several attempts to dispose of the land but with the Financial Crisis and subsequently the Portuguese Economy downturn this has not been possible.

There is currently an interested party to take part of the land for the development of an Eco Concept designated ‘Plantation Guadiana’, that has the intention to develop a Hotel with a small Marina and an allotment of Eco Friendly Homes.

QPAM is promoting the integration of this concept but under a bigger ‘vision’ to bring it together with a R&D University Campus, Student Housing Complex, and promotion of Aggrotech Industries attached to the R&D, namely Aquaponics and other AI & Fintech Industries alongside modern but integrated Eco Housing under a principle of ‘carbon neutral’ and ‘circular economy’ principles whereby all power generation is self-sufficient and ability to export exceeding power. 

QPAM is now looking for interested Parties to invest in this exciting and unique project expecting to generate specific projects Grants from the Portuguese Government alongside developers investments.

R&D AGGRO-TECH UNIVERSITY CAMPUS & HYDROPONICS PRODUCTION

image208

R&D AGGROTECH UNIVERSITY

Portugal has in recent years attracted a tremendous attention into the Fintech arena, with annual events promoting start-ups in various sectors of this activity (https://www.portugalfintech.org/portugalfintechreport2018) and with the Government in promoting initiatives that bring employment and innovation into the Country. Algarve has always been and is a destination for holidays, but is thriving for new education and technology advanced start-ups with the young population and visitors every year, ideal for the promotion of a University Campus dedicated to Aggrotech new technologies, and attracting big corporations that are very interested in this sector (Microsoft, Amazon, Elon Musk, Google, etc) not forgetting the big Farm Industries, i.e. Cargill, BASF, etc. this site is ideal for the promotion of this concept.

HYDROPONICS PRODUCTION

Southern Spain and the Algarve are being populated by the growth of ‘fresh produce’ (berries, lettuces, tomato’s, etc.) that are exported every day into Europe and other parts of the World. Combining Hydroponics Technologies with our R&D University Campus alongside with Eco Homes that have their eco-micro farms and vineyard, but are completely self-sufficient in energy and respond to ‘circular economy’ targets, make it ideal developments inserted on a sustainable ‘carbon zero’ economy that blend well into a vision in developing new products and technologies for the growth of Human Population.
