Hendic joins HortiTechIndia

"Constant water supply is key in greenhouse cultivation and management"

Hendic, a supplier of water storage systems used in agriculture, horticulture, aquaculture, and industry, is joining the HortiTechIndia (HTI) consortium as per October 2018.

Hendic supplies storage systems such as steel tanks, reservoirs, plastic tanks/containers and temporary storage. The water storage silos are suited for the storage of rainwater, drinking water, fish farming or water for irrigation in horticulture. These systems are currently delivered by Hendic globally. Hendic provides storage tanks customised to local requirements and conditions. The Hendic galvanized steel plate water tank has become an asset in worldwide glasshouse horticulture.

The main components of a water storage silo/tank are the 450mu galvanized S350 steel panels, bolts, washers and nuts. To make the water silo waterproof, plastic liner is used. This quality plastic is selected on the type of content to be stored and may be PVC or EPDM. In most situations, Hendic supplies DelafleX, a unique and high quality foil material. The water storage silos and tanks are available in various diameters ranging from 1.86 m up to 40 m and heights from 0.83 m up to 6.10 m with a capacity up to 4,000,000 liter of water. Based on the silo/tank diameter and height, a calculation will be made to determine the thickness of the steel panels needed.

Availability and quality of water is of key importance for horticultural development in India, constant water supply is key in greenhouse cultivation and management. Hendic is supplying its systems in India, and would like to join HTI’s mission to upgrade the Indian horticulture sector.

HortiTechIndia is a consortium of Dutch companies and knowledge institutes operating in the horticulture sector. Together, they have the aim to collaborate with Indian partners to upgrade the quality of the Indian horticulture sector and thereby enhance productivity and profitability.

By combining better inputs, technology and knowledge transfer, their vision is to increase the yield of vegetable crops per square meter and growers income as a consequence; improve product quality and safety in order to increase the domestic sales and export of Indian vegetables; and transfer (mid-tech) technology and knowledge to increase competitiveness.
