SafePower 1 (SP1) was established to bring renewable energy at an industrial scale to a world in need of clean, sustainable energy. This led to work in the Middle East and Africa. In 2017, the company was re-purposed to bring about change in the transportation and shipping infrastructure sectors. This led us to pursue companies for investments and partnerships who were currently in possession of "game-changing" technology. The first in our que is a remarkable and innovative company based in Italy. In 2017, SP1 entered into a licensing agreement to bring their green, smart rail cross-ties (sleepers) to the US.
Built from a pre-stressed, concrete inner-structure, and an outer-shell made from recycled plastics and end-of-life (ELT) tires, this system meshes safety, sustainability and unparalleled durability, with sound and vibration dampening, as well as tech advances for a railroad industry that after 186 with limited change, is on the brink of great advancement. SP1 is also engaged in an aggressive R&D effort aimed at new product development and deployment, as well as, acquisition/licensing opportunities.
So, our introduction product (The One), outperforms all competitors with a 50+ year lifespan - substantially reducing replacement and maintenance costs. The One recycles approximately 49 tons of recycled plastics and EoL (End of Life) tires per mile and moderates rail vibrations by 30+% thus, increasing safety and providing noise reduction for rolling stock. It utilizes standard concrete tie manufacturing systems with SP1 modifications and “know-how”.
