PFT’s active involvement in the development of agricultural production in St Petersburg and the Leningrad region continues to attract the attention of more interested parties. To date, the most attractive format for large customers is the construction of modern year-round greenhouse ecosystems. One such project is the Eglizi project, which is a modern automated greenhouse complex based on aeroponic tiered cultivation technology.
The contract between Syndicate LLC and PFT was signed in February 2021. A land area of 4.5 hectares in the village of Eglizi in the Leningrad Region was chosen as a pilot site. According to the approved concept, the first stage of the project involves the construction of 2 year-round greenhouses of 600 and 480 m2 respectively, a primary product processing facility, a storage area, and all service and support infrastructure. The estimated growing area in the first phase will be approximately 2,000 m2. The final capacity of the project, according to the approved concept, is estimated at 1.45 hectares of usable area. The target format of the finished product is green crops, salad onions, and various primary processing products (salad mixes and blends).
The facility is currently under construction. The estimated delivery date for the first phase is July 2021.
