Bom Group has been working for a long time on 'new cultivation' and mechanically ventilated greenhouses, for which it was subsequently awarded First Prize at the Hortifair Innovation Awards. Since then, Bom Group has focused on further developing its systems and has implemented more new innovations.
Bom Group has also worked together with Wageningen University Research (WUR) to build the winning project in Bleiswijk in the Greenhouse as Energy Source. This greenhouse is equipped with all possible systems for mechanical ventilation. Researchers at WUR and at Bom Group’s own R&D department spent several years successfully testing the greenhouse with different types of vegetable crops. This has resulted in higher production, better quality and lower power consumption.
Bom Group has combined all of these developments in its ‘Air in Control’ programme:
• Ideal climate conditions
• Optimal horizontal temperature distribution
• Controlled RV
• Low power consumption
• More CO2
• Higher production
• Reduced incidence of illness
The systems developed by Bom Group are characterised by their high efficiency, low noise level and great ease of use.
The system can be implemented with separate air-conditioning units or a fully accessible environment corridor in the front gable, depending on the required airflow.
In mild climates separate air-conditioning units are sufficient, while in warm climates a climate corridor is used in combination with path cooling.
We control the humidity in the greenhouse with an optimised system of fans, a combination of greenhouse and (heated) outdoor air and the use of air hoses for good horizontal distribution of the dehumidified air in the greenhouses.
All of the usual climate computers are perfectly capable of controlling the process and we can design the heating systems in such a way that the Air in Control system makes maximum use of the available low-grade heat.
Our climate specialists can use our own in-house model calculation programme to make a reliable prediction of the potential crop yield and the requisite energy consumption. These figures are also frequently used in feasibility studies.
New website launchedBom Group launched its new website last week. On the website, visitors can find more information about the ‘Air in Control’ programme and about the opportunities provided by Bom Group in the area of climate optimisation.
Bom Group will be present at Green Tech 2014 in RAI Amsterdam from 10 to 12 June 2014 (stand no. 11.608).
