New agricultural complex from multi-tiered year-round aeroponic greenhouses, St. Petersburg24.03.2021
As part of the development of agriculture in St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region, Plant Factory LLC has embarked on a large-scale project for the construction of an agricultural complex from multi-tiered year-round aeroponic greenhouses. The initiator of the project was a company with outstanding experience in the field of traditional agriculture - AGROSINDIKAT LLC. At the end of 2020, based on the results of a series of preliminary consultations, the company's management decided to transform production in order to introduce advanced technologies for plants growing.
The signing of the contract took place in February 2021. A land plot with an area of 6 hectares on the territory of the village of Eglizi was chosen as a pilot site. According to the approved concept, the project involves the construction of a modern greenhouse cluster, which includes year-round greenhouses with an area of 500 m2 each, a primary product processing workshop, the construction of a storage area and entire service and support infrastructure. The estimated cultivation area within the approved concept of the facility will be about 1.33 hectares. Based on the results of the project assessment, Plant Factory chose the technology of intensive cultivation of green crops using aeroponic power systems and CCO (LED lighting system) as the optimal production technology.
The target product format is green, spicy and vegetable crops of the "super fresh" format, as well as various primary processing products (salad mixes and mixtures).
The facility is currently at the design stage. It is assumed that the zero-cycle work will begin in April 2021. The approximate completion date of the object is the end of 2021.
