Support for investments for the transformation and marketing and/or development of agricultural products
Focus Area 3A: Improve the primary producers’ integration into the agri-food chain
through quality standard systems, products’ promotion in local markets,
shorter chains, producers’ associations and interprofessional organisations.
Criteria 2016 – Construction of new warehouse for sparkling wines, automation of the heating plant for the still and sparkling wine cellar, and purchase of new cellar equipment.
Cavit Sc is a second-tier Consortium comprising ten first-tier cooperative wineries in the province of Trentino as well as the Consorzio Cantine Palazzo sc.
The first-tier contributing members oversee the five macro-zones of Trentino’s vineyards via the 4,500 member growers.
The careful nurturing of the land by the Wineries and their 4,500 member growers results in a range of wines that showcases all the variety of Trentino’s historical heritage: from Chardonnay to Pinot Grigio, from Gewürztraminer to Müller Thurgau, from Pinot Nero to Marzemino, and also to the TRENTODOC sparkling wines – to name just a few.
The Rural Development Plan for 2014 – 2020 enacted by the Autonomous Province of Trento, known as “OPERATION 4.2.1 SUPPORT FOR INVESTMENTS FOR THE TRANSFORMATION AND MARKETING AND/OR DEVELOPMENT OF AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS” has provided support to the company in making the investments necessary to improve its production standards in terms of quality and quantity, thus increasing efficiency in each phase of production while respecting the environment in which we live.
Cavit focuses on the need for constant improvement in production standards in order to guarantee the levels of quality demanded by the consumer and certifying institutes such as BRC and IFS, but above all to maintain the company’s high safety standards for its employees and for the environment.
The investments that Cavit intends to make are necessary in order to improve production standards in terms of quality, quantity, technology and economy, by optimizing the production process, and involve numerous areas of the plant.
Over the last few years, the market has maintained its upward trend, especially in the sparkling wines area. The planned investments are intended to match this positive trend, increasing the capacity of the production sectors and their ancillary structures (wine cellars, sparkling wine cellars, improvements in various production areas of the plant and in the technological structures, such as heating plant and water treatment system).
CONSTRUCTION OF AREA FOR AUTOCLAVES
Area designed to accommodate 600 hl horizontal autoclaves constructed in stainless steel and designed for the sparkling wines production and to contain fresh grape must, with the aim of increasing production capacity while complying with all health and safety requirements.
AUTOMATION OF VAPOUR MANIFOLD IN HEATING PLANT
The plant that provides heating for the production areas and the sanitization of the equipment used for the bottling process is to be automated by the installation – in full compliance with current legislation – of devices and equipment for the control and modulation of the production of steam, thus improving efficiency and reducing the consumption of electricity and methane gas.
HYDRAULIC WORKS FOR THE NEW AUTOCLAVES
Installation of a network of pipes to serve the new autoclaves, for heat and cold management and the nitrogen distribution. Installation of software for control and monitoring.
HYDRAULIC WORKS TO IMPROVE THE ENERGY EFFICIENCY OF THE HEATING PLANT FOR THE SPARKLING WINES CELLAR (HEAT EXCHANGER)
Works necessary to allow the use of a single boiler for the steam and heat production, with the aim of significantly improving overall energy efficiency. The use of the heat exchanger helps to reduce the consumption of methane gas.
WEIGHBRIDGE AND THE RELATIVE MASONRY WORKS
In compliance with VGM (Verified Gross Mass).
PALLET ROTATORS FOR TRENTO DOC SPARKLING WINE
Improvement of the various phases of production and ageing of TRENTODOC wines to meet the demands of the market.
AUTOMATIC WASHING SYSTEM (CIP)
Intended to improve productivity by streamlining the washing cycles of the sparkling wine filling unit. The system saves significant quantities of water and increases the efficiency of the detergents used.
INVENT FOR WATER TREATMENT SYSTEM
Introduction of the latest-generation INVENT equipment which further improves the quality of waste water using a low-consumption inverter system.
