Custom-made design for Indoor Farming
Deliflor Chrysanten opted for an indoor growing solution for part of the breeding activities. This enables them to produce chrysanthemums year round at a specific temperature and humidity. Dave Tork, who is a project leader at Priva and responsible for the indoor growing facility at Deliflor, says these types of indoor solutions are always custom-made. “The conditioned air is brought into the room at low air speed and extracted back to the coolers on the other side of the room. This process is repeated on average 50 times per hour, and results in a constant climate for the crops. Together with out partners, we designed this specifically for Deliflor. For this we use the latest integrated technologies, bringing together Priva’s knowledge and experience in both Horticulture and Building Automation.”
