Netherlands: Construction at T. & T. van Leeuwen in full swing

Currently some hard work is being done on Dutch Nursery T&T van Leeuwen. The front wall, water supply and drain have already been installed. In mid-November, the first cherry tomatoes are expected to be planted in the new greenhouse, says Thomas van Leeuwen. An additional 3 hectares is being constructed. 

Expanding may seem a bit strange in this economy, but cherry nursery T. & T. van Leeuwen could really do with an update. "Only the greenhouse is new,” says Thomas van Leeuwen, who along with his brother Jordan runs the business. In time, geothermal energy will undoubtedly become available at the location, but no additional facilities need to be installed for that. 

The cherry tomatoes by Van Leeuwen are sold under the label Sweet Lions. "To be recognizable in the chain," says Van Leeuwen.

The new greenhouse, built by Havecon and installed by Cogas Zuid, features low-iron, tempered glass. The façade contains double plates with a strong insulating effect. As a result, a facade screen is not necessary. The greenhouse has a channel length of 180.57 meters and a column height of 6 meters. Only one screen is installed. "Just like in the old greenhouse," continues Van Leeuwen. "But in the old greenhouse we still worked the soil. In the new greenhouse we use gutters. "
