Putin's blockades encourage new greenhouse development in Crimea
Berko informed us about a new project they are currently working on in Crimea. "During the summer many Russian tourists visit the Crimea to enjoy the nice climate in the Black Sea region. The local retailers, markets and restaurants are in need of high quality fresh produce, hence greenhouses are needed to supply them with locally grown foods. We are now realizing the first 3 hectare high tech greenhouse project for the production of tomatoes in Crimea."
Berko's company is realizing the turn key project for a Russian investor. They are now preparing the paperwork to establish the supply of natural gas and electricity at the building site. "Once everything is available, we will start with the construction of the first phase of 1.5 hectares in 2016. The second phase is slated for 2018. We have not yet decided which greenhouse builder will provide the structure and technology, so we are still open to further discussing this with potential suppliers."
Now that Russia has banned imports of fresh produce, the country is doing its upmost best to create a good investment climate for new farming projects. "Also for this project we received full support from the Russian government. There are subsidies available for seeds, supplies and technology. As well as this, the banks are willing to cooperate, all in all it's promising."
In regards to the tension in Crimea, Berko furthermore told us that the situation has stabilized significantly recently. "It's a safe, friendly and nice place to go right now. Many Russians will visit the area in the summer. Hopefully we can provide them with fresh locally grown tomatoes from the first phase then."
