Ultra Clima® greenhouse for French research centre CTIFL

KUBO is building an Ultra Clima® greenhouse for the French Centre Technique Interprofessionel des Fruits et Legumes (CTIFL), which has its headquarters near the French City of Nantes. A research centre specialised in fruit and vegetables, the CTIFL provides technical assistance to fruit and vegetable producers mainly in Western and North-western France. The centre will be using its new greenhouse to compare tomatoes grown using the Ultra Clima® system with two other cultivation methods. All aspects of cultivation will be taken into consideration, including technical factors relating to cultivation and to the greenhouse itself. As well as fruit development and production, the research will also monitor energy and CO₂ consumption and climate stability and homogeneity, among other things.

The new greenhouse has been supplied as a 100% turnkey project and is being built in cooperation with KUBO’s French partner, Hortère. KUBO is responsible for the greenhouse and Ultra Clima® system, while Hortère is installing all further systems. Spanning an area of 4,000 m², the new structure will comprise three entirely separate sections. KUBO is also renovating a part of the existing greenhouse. With the foundation completed before the end of the French Summer holidays, KUBO began assembling the new greenhouse in early September. The greenhouse will be taken into operation before Christmas.
