Russia: Greenhouse arises in permafrost region

A leading Russian metal construction producer, Agrisovgas company, takes part in constructing a unique greenhouse complex in the permafrost region, in Anadyr.

Greenhouses by Agrisovgas are suitable for any climatic conditions and can be exploited at a temperature range from -50 to +50 C.

“Our company has provided a unique production greenhouse with an acreage of 1152 square meters to Anadyr in Chukotka”, shares Mr. Maksim Yakibchuk, the general director of Agrisovgas. “The project has been worked out specifically for the extreme permafrost conditions. As a result of its completion, over 15 thousand city dwellers will get access to fresh vegetables in volume of 100 tons per year, which will cover over 50% of the consumption norm.”

The project presupposes the construction of the vegetable, nursing, and technological departments under one roof. The main specific feature of the construction is that the metal constructions and greenhouse equipment will be placed on a monolith reinforced concrete slab. This will help prevent loss of temperature to the soil. The construction will preserve the soil permafrost state, thus adhering to the eco parameters of the construction zone.

The greenhouse will boast contemporary equipment and production technologies, enabling the projected vegetable output. The vegetables will be grown in accordance with hydroponic technology.

As of today, the greenhouse has been assembled; the equipment and engineering networks are being montaged. It is planned that the construction works will be completed in 2021.
