HighTechGreenhouse 2020: Energy savings of 24%
During the international horticultural show GreenTech 2014, the first results of the HighTechGreenhouse 2020 were presented by Peter van Weel, researcher at the WUR (Wageningen University and Research centre).
Energy savings of 24% were achieved in the first months of the production at the tomato grower Fresh Valley in Maasbree, The Netherlands. This result has been achieved by the combination of the Multifan Short Case Fan 35 with the Multifan V-FloFan. The first fan moves the cool, dry air from above the closed screens into the greenhouse; the second fan mixes the warm air in the greenhouse and the heat of the lighting and brings the air at crop level, resulting into lower heating costs.
