Efficiency is the key to sustainable and profitable indoor farming. Our automated hydroponic NFT growing systems have been designed with space, labor, energy and water efficiency in mind to achieve maximal yield while using less resources.
The green house area can be used to full extent = maximized production/m²
Automatic gutter movement and distance adjustment ensures maximal usage of your greenhouse
A fully automated greenhouse operation minimizes labor needs
You are taking a “hands-offf approach” with the green automation system. From seeding to harvesting no human labor is needed.
Water and energy efficiency
The cornerstone of sustainable indoor farming – 95% less water consumption and most efficient energy source
The closed and controlled hydroponic NFT system circulates the irrigation water, reducing the water consumption by 95% compared to conventional farming. In the greenhouse your plants will be soaking up the sunlight, using the most efficient and cost effective energy source there is.
Green Automation has introduced two growing systems: one optimized for baby leaf production and one for living lettuce production.
Baby Leaf Lettuce – Fully Automated System
This system is designed for baby leaf production and feature a fully automated process from seeding to harvest that does not require any direct manual interaction with plants or gutters. The system offers an optional mixing system.
The individual steps of the systems can be reviewed below in the Tab “Fully Automatic”.
Living Lettuce – Automated System
This system is optimized for head lettuce production and utilizes a highly efficient plant tray-table, a single transplanting process and a 75mm wide growing gutter that allows for the use of multiple types of growing media.
The individual steps of the systems can be reviewd below in the Tab “Automatic”
The Green Automation solutions are developed to face the extreme conditions in the greenhouse environment. All the construction components are manufactured from the highest quality stainless and hot dip galvanized steel and anodized aluminum with excellent corrosion resistance.
The automated systems are controlled by industrial programmable logic controllers (PLC’s), which represents the latest technology available. The use of PLC’s enables our accomplished engineers the opportunity to design and customize the growing system based the needs and visions the grower may have.
