Bom Group, a progressive greenhouse builder, climate and screen specialist, will present a completely new greenhouse concept at the Greentech Fair from 14 / to 16 June in Amsterdam, The Netherlands: the Winterlight Greenhouse This concept, in combination with a new type of screen system, Svensson@screen cloth and light-diffusing glass, yields more than 10% light. The Winterlight Greenhouse, with all its installations, systems and products is currently built on the site of Wageningen UR Greenhouse Horticulture in Bleiswijk. In the coming period various crop trials are conducted.
The newly designed greenhouse structure is fully powder coated in white with an increased reflection factor of 90% and is glazed with SmartGlass, a new type of diffuse glass, sized 300 x 167 cm. Even if the glass is wet or condensed, the light transmittance does not decrease. The integrated Iso ++ screen system is installed in a W-shape for optimal light transmission in closed position and is equipped with a new high transparent screen fabric of Ludvig Svensson with an even better light transmission. The new greenhouse concept is also equipped with an Air in Control climate system. Coming winter the greenhouse concept will be tested with a new cultivation method for a cucumber crop, focusing on the winter period.
The Winterlight Greenhouse was developed in collaboration with Wageningen UR, Ludvig Svensson, Bayer CropScience and Glascom Horticulture and the project has been made possible by the program Kas als Energiebron, the innovation and action program of LTO Glaskracht and the Ministry of Economic Affairs. At the Greentech Fair, Bomb Group (stand no. 08 108) will give an impression of the developments within the brand new greenhouse concept.
