Floating salad and herbs production

When the grow cups with young plants have been transplanted in the floats automatically, the floats will be placed in the basin by an automatic crane. The design of the tall floats makes for a system that needs little handling, with as few movements as possible.

The cups are being placed in a staggered pattern, which results in a 10% higher occupation per float. The float has been designed in plastic, which makes for easy cleaning. The white plastic also reflects well, which generates a higher light capacity for the plant.

The floats will float on the water, which makes it easy to transport them with minimal effort. Every time a product is harvested, a new product will be placed in the ponds. Because the ponds are thus continuously covered with floats, the pond is protected from the development of algae.
