Sol-Chip

Sol-Chip is an Israel technology company dedicated to the development of agricultural IoT systems. Based on the company’s proprietary light chip, the company has developed its own integrated solutions to power sustainable IoT platforms and provide efficient bi-directional data communication and management services to maximize the potential of IoT systems. The solutions have been widely used in greenhouses, fields, orchards, and weather stations around the world. Sol-Chip’s vision is to maximize IoT’s potential to create a more sustainable world, by using the force of digitalization to make farming cycles more efficient – reducing water and fertilizer consumption while improving yields.

With the introduction and assistance of SHENG Enterprises, Zhejiang Garden-Bee Horticultural Technology Co., Ltd. has tapped the potential of Sol-Chip in landscaping, and applied it in the future community stereo greening ecosystem in Zhejiang, complementing for the shortcomings of traditional irrigation equipment and sensors in power, data transmission and management systems. The status of the whole community’s green humidity, irrigation, equipment power and so on are displayed in the cloud-base management platform, which can be viewed and adjusted anytime and anywhere by logging in from a remote location.

In 2019, the Zhejiang government listed “Future Communities” as part of the tasks in the Government Work Report, and became the first province in China to propose the construction of “Future Communities”. In order to maintain the evergreen of the future community, it requires the integration of new technologies of landscaping. In the future community construction of Shibanqiao Future Community in Shangcheng District, Hangzhou, Israeli technology made a significant contribution towards achieving these targets.

The Sol-Chip system named “Soltag”, installed on the roof of a residential building, connects sensors for greenery in various locations of the building, wirelessly transmitting information on soil moisture conditions to a cloud-based control platform in real time, and when the humidity drops beyond a preset value, a command is automatically issued to open the water valve connected to the Soltag to water the green landscape of the entire building. At the same time, the Soltag is leveraging an innovative solar panel on the chip that can power the connected sensors, valves, etc., providing everlasting energy 24/7/365 even when it keeps raining for days. The whole process does not require manual intervention and daily maintenance, which is truly fully automatic and intelligent water-saving irrigation.

SHENG Welcoming Chinese New Year of the Ox

Last week we celebrated the Chinese New Year of the Ox, and the firecrackers which color the skies of Shanghai, Beijing and other cities of China are chasing away the demons of the ending year, and especially the COVID19 demon, and welcoming a new and (hopefully) much better year…

The Chinese economy showed its resilience and strength in the past year, with fast recovery from the COVID19 crisis, achieving GDP growth of 2.3% (6.5% in Q4/2020) with major growth factors being the industrial production, which was strongly supported by the government; the global demand which drove export increase, and the rice in private consumption (with growth rates reaching +7.3%;  +18.1%; +4.6% in December 2020). Foreign direct investments into China rose 4.5% in 2020 and reached 11 billion USD. 

The growth trend is expected to continue and enhance in 2021, with GDP growth expected to climb to 7.1% (Credit Swiss prediction)  

The economic and business cooperation between Israel and China showed its strength as well in the past year with bilateral trade achieving mild growth (6%) and reaching close to 12 billion USD. The main growth was in the import to Israel which grew to 7.7 billion USD while the Israeli export slightly decreased to 4.2 billion USD.   

Although the past year have been a challenging one, with no international traveling and limited movement across China, SHENG’s also managed to pull through. SHENG’s teams in Israel and China showed their strength and capability and deficiently proved we have got what it takes to achieve success, even in challenging times…

SHENG’s reputation, network, and proven experience, helped us in closing deals between Israeli and Chinese companies – even between companies who never met each other. Among others SHENG closed 3 investment banking deals in the fields of advanced manufacturing, pharma, and consumer electronics…

SHENG’s team members across Tel Aviv, Shanghai, Wuxi and Changzhou and a strong network of friends and associates proved their commitment, capabilities, and skills, putting their heart and soul into making things happen.
