New Holland, the official sponsor of the Giro d’Italia 2022, will display a T6 Methane Power tractor along the route of the sporting event, providing a platform for the message of sustainable agriculture.
When powered by biomethane, produced from liquid manure, the tractor is capable of a negative carbon footprint while offering the same performance as the diesel equivalent.
It will be on display in a special ‘Leader’s Jersey’ livery at the Giro d’Italia.
“The T6 Methane Power tractor is the culmination of New Holland’s pioneering work in the development of methane technology and one of the many tangible outcomes of our Clean Energy Leader strategy,” stated Carlo Lambro, New Holland Brand President.
“At New Holland, we are passionate about enabling and promoting sustainable, efficient and profitable farming through advanced technologies, extended connectivity and reliable powertrain technology. The T6 Methane Power tractor, now in production and available to our customers, is a vital link in our Energy Independent Farm’s virtual cycle that delivers carbon neutral production.”
The company will take part in the Giro-E 2022, the pedal-powered Giro d’Italia built on technology, ecology and sustainable mobility. Members of the New Holland team will take part and the event is said to be the only one dedicated to pedal-assisted bicycles. It takes place at the same as the Giro d’Italia and covers the final sections of its 18 stages a few hours before the professional riders.
“The Giro-E provides us with the opportunity of involving directly our employees, dealers and customers in our efforts to spread the message about sustainable agriculture,” said Sean Lennon, vice president Europe, New Holland Agriculture. “And this with the excitement of what will be a
truly unforgettable experience for cycling enthusiasts among our New Holland community.”
