Total VB Greenhouse Concept for Haisheng, Xi’An, China
Tuesday 18 October 2016
VB Greenhouse Projects, member of VB Group, has recently completed a ‘state of the art’ greenhouse project for strawberry production for Haisheng in Xi’An, China. The greenhouse was officially opened during an opening ceremony on September 28, 2016. The project was completed in a record time of only 7 months.
It is a complete project of 5 hectares of greenhouses for the cultivation of strawberries. VB Greenhouse Projects is responsible for the total delivery: the greenhouse- and climate installations, climate control (Priva computer), irrigation, logistics, product upgrading, cold storage rooms, dock shelters etc.
Haisheng Co. Ltd. is one of the largest fruit juice suppliers in the world and specializes in fruit concentrates production. The Haisheng Group has set up a diversified market network. Their products are mainly exported to the US, Canada, Germany, France, Australia, Russia and Japan.
The greenhouse delivered by VB Greenhouse Projects is an 8 meter trellis with a 6 m altitude provided with a special transport system running under the gutter. All materials come from the Netherlands, except the glass. For each roof is a foundation made according wish of the principal. The growing gutter is 10 cm lower than usual, this means an adjustment to local standards. Of course, this has consequences and as a result, also other parts (e.g. height of transport trolleys) have to be adjusted.
The complete project had been realized under the direction of VB Projects Greenhouses in cooperation with Dutch supervisors, Priva staff and a local subcontractor.
