VB Greenhouses and Hydroponic Green Valley Mexico ready for Phase IV
Thursday 9 February 2017
VB Greenhouses, a VB Group member, started the delivery of the fourth greenhouse phase for Hydroponic Green Valley in North Mexico. The project is a complete greenhouse project, delivered with Dutch input and knowledge and contains a total surface of 49.200 m². The new phase will be connected to the existing greenhouses. The total surface of all buildings realized by VB will be all together more than 200.000 m2, exclusive the operation room of amply 3.000 m2, which is executed in sandwich. With this project VB Greenhouses delivers a total solution for the production of vegetables.
The advanced plastic greenhouse is executed with a BOAL aluminum gutter with several innovations for the integration of harmonica insect-netting and the prevention of dripping condensation. The greenhouse is equipped with a hot-dip galvanized trellis construction of 9.60 m. Two connected steel arches make the span for the plastic from gutter to gutter, which made it possible to build quickly. The greenhouse roof provided with continuous air inlets with harmonica insect-netting, which in this climate limits the pressure of insects considerably.
Currently the local constructors are working hard on the greenhouse drains. As soon as the materials of the greenhouse will be delivered, which are expected End of February, the other construction activities will continue. The foundation has been realized already in late 2016. Completion of the fourth phase of this project is expected to take place mid-June.
