For Fresh Forward Breeding in Huissen, Trintech was allowed to technically convert a large cucumber nursery into a strawberry breeding company. From a nursery (4ha) with 4 departments to a nursery with 14 departments. Each department has now been provided with the right technical solution by Trintech, tailored to the different phases in the breeding process.
We started the technical conversion in mid-2020. In collaboration with consultancy firm DLVge, Mr. Teunis Sikma and Mr. Kees van Miltenburg of Fresh Forward Breeding, water-technical, electrical and heating technical adjustments have been made.
Many adjustments and new applications have been made:
For the water-technical installation there is:
- a cloth filter,
- some water treatment units,
- a drip system
- and installed an irrigation water system.
Department panels have been installed with various lighting systems, including assimilation lighting in the cutting department and various LED lighting systems in the test setups.
To adjust the heating, two transport groups with various heating groups are mounted in the sections. Floor heating, pipe rail heating, growth pipe heating and table heating have been installed.
A new CO2 installation has also been installed.
