We are proud to announce that QuantoTech was selected for the BC Fast Pilot Program to showcase our enclosed grow system at two sites in the Mackenzie B.C. region.

NRC IRAP and Innovate BC invest in British Columbia businesses through B.C. Fast Pilot Program


Federal and provincial funding will help 22 B.C. companies pilot technology at customer sites and create new jobs across the province.

September 17, 2020 – Vancouver, B.C – National Research Council of Canada The National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP) and Innovate BC, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to invest more than $2M in research and development funding for 22 new projects through the B.C. Fast Pilot Program.

This is the second MOU NRC IRAP and Innovate BC have signed, and marks the second round of B.C. Fast Pilot funding. The B.C. Fast Pilot Program helps SMEs design, build, and operate a pilot plant or small demonstration of their technology in real-world conditions. The program allows B.C. technology companies to demonstrate the impact of their product, measure the value of their solution, and encourage customer adoption. For customers, the program offers a way to minimize some of the risk that traditional industries encounter when adopting new technologies.”

This program not only allows us to showcase our systems, but helps increase food security and job promotion to the region as we implement our pilot.

“Today’s partnership between NRC IRAP and Innovate BC will help small and medium-sized businesses grow and compete in the global marketplace. By supporting these tech companies, our government is helping to create more jobs across B.C. while getting new, innovative ideas off the ground.” The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry.

“We are very thankful to have been selected for the BC Fast Pilot Program along with many other innovative companies. Increasing food security to remote and northern communities has been a long-term goal for us as we’ve developed our technology. This pilot allows us to take a huge step forward towards that goal through a real-world pilot. We couldn’t have received this funding without the support of our amazing partners: The College of New Caledonia, Ace Victory Building Center, and Tsay Keh Dene Nation,” Alycia van der Gracht, Founder.

We are excited to get our pilot up and running and begin proving the value of our technology in improving food security, and food quality, for communities Canada-wide.

QuantoTech Solutions Ltd. is an engineering service company that supplies energy-efficient and environment-friendly LED lighting and grow systems to commercial growers.

QuantoTech deployed an LED lighting system to prove the success of winter enclosed growing in Prince George, B.C. with temperatures dipping as low as -30 Celsius.

“We can utilize both existing and new spaces to implement LED and hydroponic grow technology for winter crops. By using multi-level growing we can maximize the available growing space with a small footprint. Using a grow system that can be implemented in a wide variety of spaces opens the doors to any community with underutilized, climate controllable space, and access to electrical and water, to begin growing. This is a great way to increase food security year-round,” said Alycia van der Gracht, Founder.

QuantoTech Solutions has signed an LOI with a health food company in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan.

The QuantoTech team recently traveled to Kazakhstan to meet partners and further promote vertical farming and smart grow technology.

“QuantoTech is branching out to Kazakhstan due to great interest from the Kazakhstan government in Canadian technology as well as an interest in becoming more self-reliant. We’ve teamed up with a strong partner in Nur-Sultan to run a vertical grow system aimed at providing microgreens to local restaurants. This could not have been accomplished without the tremendous support from the Canadian embassy and the trade commissioners based out of Nur-Sultan,” said Alycia van der Gracht, Founder.
