Students from the Faculty of Engineering at the Parthenope University of Naples will create a new sustainable model with the Digital Twin.
Domenico De Rosa, CEO of SMET: “We are proud to contribute to the education of the new generations, transferring to them experience and knowledge about freight mobility, especially in terms of sustainability”
Rome, 3 April 2022 – The SMET Group launches a challenge to tackle the new challenges imposed by the development of sustainable mobility, involving the Parthenope University of Naples in the project.
In fact, it will be the students of the Faculty of Engineering at this university who will create new mobility models with no environmental impact, in line with the new EU regulation that envisages zero emissions in 2035. The new models will be created through the use of the Digital Twin and taking as a reference the performance of selected freight transport routes, where SMET already operates intermodality.
Comments Domenico De Rosa, CEO of the SMET Group and Subject Matter Expert in “Quality Management and Production” at the Faculty of Engineering of the Parthenope University: “We are proud to be able to contribute to the training of the new generations, enthusiastically transferring to them our experience and knowledge gained over many years of commitment to freight mobility. I am referring in particular to the issue of the environmental impact of transport, which today, following the new European regulations, is a very topical subject. We have been working on sustainability for about 30 years, having been pioneers both in the development of intermodality and in the introduction of alternative fuel vehicles’.
The project was presented to students on Wednesday 29 March, starting at 3.30 p.m., in the Aula Magna of the Faculty of Engineering at Parthenope University. The meeting, entitled, ‘New challenges and opportunities of the sustainable mode of the future’, was attended by: Antonio Garofalo-Magnificent Rector of Parthenope University, Marco Ariola-Director of the Department of Engineering, Massimiliano Perri-Director General of IVECO, Antonio Ricci-Vice President of SNAM’s Global Gas Filling Station, Domenico De Rosa-CEO of the SMET Group. It was moderated by Fabio De Felice, Professor of Production and Quality Management at the Parthenope University. The Smet Group has been active in the transport and logistics sector for 75 years. Thanks to a constant growth process under the banner of process innovation, a high level of service, highly qualified resources and targeted investments, today SMET is a European leader in multimedia transport. The Group pays particular attention to environmental protection and the pursuit of sustainable development. It is one of the pioneers in the integration of environmental protection policy and the use of natural gas-powered ECO TRUCK vehicles.
