Growing Phase on deep water

Harvest in the packhouse: Fully automated systems

When the grow cups with young plants have been transplanted in the floats automatically, the floats will be placed in the basin by an automatic crane. The design of the tall floats makes for a system that needs little handling, with as little movements as necessary.

The cups are being placed in a staggered pattern, which results in a 10% higher occupation per float. The float is being designed in plastic, which makes it easy for cleaning. This white plastic reflects well, which generates a higher light capacity for the plant.

The floats will float on the water, which makes it very easy to transport them with a minimal effort. Every time a product is automatically harvested, new products will be placed in the ponds. The ponds are continuously covered with floats, which protects the pond from the development of algae.

Harvest in the packhouse: Semi-automated systems

When the grow cups with young plants have been transplanted in the floats manually, the floats will be placed in the basin by hand. Again, due to the tall design of floats little handling is required, while cups will also have a 10% higher occupation per float. The floats’ plastic is easy to clean and yields higher light capacities for the plant.

The floats will float on the water, which makes it very easy to transport them with a minimal effort. A push-up mechanism is automated, yet manual operation is required when a product is harvested. New products can then be manually placed in the ponds.
