MINERVA, at the center of your preference
With the premise of producing and offering ecological equipment to the country, the Industrial Company “Ángel Villarreal Bravo”, Minerva, is committed to a sustainable future by marketing equipment that has electric energy as a power source; it is maintaining and increasing its business for tourism investment, the Mariel Special Development Zone, import substitution and the use of electronic commerce, as well as well as the recently created stores in MLC (freely convertible currency).
Minerva is the sales leader in electric commerce and MLC stores in the Higher Organization of Business Management (OSDE) of the Business Group of the Steelworking Industry (GESIME). At the end of September, 2 587 electric bicycles, 973 electric tricycles and spare parts to the value of 210,638.50 USD had been sold through ecommerce and stores in MLC, including lithium and lead gel batteries, chargers, electronic boxes, tires and inner tubes.
It is worth noting that batteries in the equipment already on the market are lead gel and lithium iron phosphate with an electric protection circuit to prevent fires in vehicles. None of the equipment sold has had accidents of this type. AEI VEDCA (International Economic Association for Electric Vehicles of the Caribbean) is currently being set up in Havana, an investment to assemble electric cycles, which will increase the capacity of assembly and multiply their supply. The center is in its final phase and in the fourth quarter of the current year it will receive the technological equipment with a view to starting operations at the end of 2020. They are also working to commercialize batteries, as there are many electric bicycles running on Cuba that do not have spare parts secured.
Meanwhile, the product on the shelf is in high demand due to investments in tourism; especially with the developer Almest, by 2021 the demand will have tripled.
It is a commodity with 100% national integration in its manufacture and substitutes imports. Work is being done to improve technological equipment through small investments in production processes.
