Friss Holding's plans for a greenhouse project have, once again, been granted an extension. This is for the Waddenglas project in Sexbierum, the Netherlands. That is according to an article in the Dutch paper, the Leeuwarder Courant.
The buyer still needs to get an SDE grant. Not getting this is a resolutive condition. Friss Holding has now received an extension until September 1. The province of Friesland, the municipality of Waadhoeke, and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency granted it.
The holding's name became known in the fall of 2020. That was after it became clear that a buyer had eventually been found.
Friss Holding wants to build 'one of the most sustainable greenhouse horticultural companies in the Netherlands' on the 50-hectare piece of land. A closed greenhouse will form its basis.
The closed system means they'll have 100% control over factors like temperature and humidity. It also reduces CO2 and nitrogen emissions. Half of the greenhouses will be covered with solar panels. These will provide power for the climate and energy systems.
Friss Holding has a wide range of partners. These are in the fields of lighting, energy, greenhouse construction, and ICT. Thanks to them, Friss wants to make Waddenglas an innovative success, they said last year. At that time, they said they would've purchased the land no later than May 31, 2021.
