There are serveral large water basins around the greenhouses. Rainwater is collected in these basins and we use the water to irrigate the pepper plants.
These water basins will be fitted with solar panels in 2023, with the aim of generating electricity for our own business flow. For example for our sorting lines, packaging stations and the various installations in the greenhouses.
Solar panels are also placed on the roofs of the buildings. In total, 18MW of electricity will be generated on a sunny summer day.
