Giant greenhouse complex to be built in Tyumen, Russia

Based on the Dutch technologies, a high-tech greenhouse with total area of 17 hectares is being built in Tyumen region, Russia.

This giant greenhouse will be equipped with advanced systems of drip watering, screening, assimilation lighting; and only modern vegetable growing techniques will be used. The realization of the project will ensure the all-year-round provision of fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, and green grocery. The completed first phase of construction work will result in production of 9 000 tonnes of vegetables per year.

The construction works are performed at the expense of Russian investors with support of Tyumen Government. The total amount of investment is 46 million Euro.

The ground floor is already finished; the glazing is now in progress. By the end of the year the first phase buildings are expected to be commissioned.
The management of LLC Greenhouse TyumenAgro is going to start recruiting shortly. The new giant greenhouse will provide 200 Tyumen residents with job positions, and will turn a profit of 13 million Euro as tax liabilities.

According to the officials from the Ministry of Agriculture in Russia, the greenhouse vegetable growing is very promising and actively developing. During the last two years there has been ‘a greenhouse boom’, i.e. reconstruction and upgrading of existing greenhouse complexes as well as building of new ones.

Tyumen is among the leaders in greenhouse business development in the country, and has the leading position in Ural Federal district.
Siberia is considered to have cheerful prospects on development of the agricultural complex, regardless of its unfavourable weather conditions. However, it is admitted that the agricultural production in Siberia is more expensive and painstaking, that is why it requires the Government support.
