From cutting to young plant

Sinn Bio (Organic) young plants is a modern company growing onions, lettuce, cabbage and herbs on a total area of 6 hectares. The company produces approximately 100 million young plants a year.

Reconstruction
The company approached VDH Sustainable Greenhouse Solutions, who had to demolish the old greenhouses and to built both the cutting production facility and the packing area. The conversion had to be completed within a very short time frame in order to avoid delays to the new planting phase. The project involved the F-Clean covered cabrio  greenhouse, the complete system for heating, drainage and water supply . As a result the facility was extended with a modern plant nursery and warehouse of almost 2,5 hectares.

Technical specifications
Greenhouse and warehouse were built by VDH Sustainable Greenhouse Solutions in line with the requirements of the applicable German standard. The foundation, steel- and roof construction were calculated and designed with the aid of local German structural engineers.

Light transmittance up to 94% and translucent to ultraviolet light
In terms of technology, the most striking feature is the F-Clean roof covering which has a light transmittance up to 94% and what is translucent to ultraviolet light.

Climate conditions
The ventilation is an so called Cabrio (open roof) system which enables outdoor conditions inside the greenhouse. Therefor the ventilation mechanism is carried out with Lock Turbo Logic special drives with high-performance frequency converters integrated in the motor for quick speed adjustments. This  ventilation mechanism is suitable for garden centers and greenhouses, especially open roof houses or grouped vent systems.

Sustainability
The greenhouses are heated with a biogas plant.  The waste heat is fed through a long-distance heat line into the existing heating installation. The existing heating installation only covers the peak loads. In order to create an optimal usage of waste heat and to further improve the sustainability of its young plant production in the future, an buffer storage with a volume of 500 m³ was installed.

Reconstruction
The company approached VDH Sustainable Greenhouse Solutions, who had to built the growing facility and the warehouse. The conversion had to be completed within a very short time frame in order to avoid delays to the new planting phase. The project involved the greenhouse, shading-/energy-saving screens, the complete system for heating, drainage and water supply . As a result the facility was extended almost 2,5 hectares.

Technical specifications
Greenhouse and warehouse were built by VDH Sustainable Greenhouse Solutions in line with the requirements of the applicable German standard. The foundation, steel- and roof construction were calculated and designed with the aid of local German structural engineers.

Energy efficiency
In order to save heating costs the whole greenhouse is covered with a double layer permanently inflated PE film. A double poly cover can reduce heat losses by up to 40 percent, in combination with an energy saving screen even more.

Ventilation
The ventilation is an double vent continuous  (butterfly) system with large  vents for perfect air movement and uniform climate.
