Agriculture is an industry in the midst of a huge transformation; radical, sustainable approaches to farming are needed to produce food for a population that is expected to grow to approximately 9 billion by 2050.
Vertical farming is at the forefront of this transformation, offering a way to meet increasing demand for produce whilst simultaneously claiming less ground space, but many variables need to be precisely controlled in order to maximise yield and profitability.
Regulating lighting, humidity, temperature and nutrient levels to ensure the consistent growth of thousands of plants is crucial to a successful operation. Alongside this, minimising energy use as far as possible is key to reducing the costs associated with such intensive methods. Optimising critical systems at a vertical farming facility significantly reduces their environmental impact, which aligns with the overarching goal of building a sustainable future for all.
Our thermal management systems, coupled with intelligent buildings control software, can ensure the precise conditions for optimal plant yield are met, whilst optimising energy use. We can design bespoke systems that take advantage of free-cooling and provide precise airflow to each shelf level, providing the perfect velocity and pressure for plant growth.
Our systems approach and ability to combine hardware and software ensures that our equipment works smarter, not harder, to give your vertical farming more precise atmospehric control for less power and ensure a stable environment and quality yield all year round.
