Smart Use of Climate
Everything starts with knowing exactly what you want to do with, and what your environment and climate is like around your indoor farm. All principals must be clear before making your final design. For example, if your facility is located in a climate where you can use a way of free cooling, you can save up to 80% of your energy consumption on your cooling and drying capacity, instead of doing the whole load with mechanical cooling.
On the other side, your crop principals must be clear, so you can also save energy when you optimise your growing conditions for your crop. A good design of airflow around your crop can easily result in a better yield and growth and uniformity. Another advantage of realising a better airflow around your crop is that your crop can allow a higher temperature and humidity. For your refrigeration installation, this can result in using more free cooling and a lower energy consumption of your refrigeration installation. So, there is no one-size-fits-all solution, but a good design always start with clear principals!
Climate computers, sensors and software steer processes that create and control an ideal climate and measure the relevant parameters. There are many possibilities, from models with buttons controlling the ventilation to models with LCD screens controlling several complex installations and sections. We are the official supplier of various brands of climate computers, including Hoogendoorn, SERCOM and Ridder.
Making the operation of horticultural businesses child's play - that is what software should do. There are various software systems that collect, analyse, and predict. This gives growers effective insight at all times. With powerful computers and extensions, you have a complete, yet flexible and user-friendly system that keeps you in perfect control of your plant production.
From Vision to Solution
Based on intensive customer contact, we work on integrated solutions. Solutions that utilise labour, time, raw materials, and space as efficiently as possible. At Bosman Van Zaal, product development and realisation are performed in-house by our own multi-disciplinary teams. Our step-by-step approach starts with your vision and ends with our technical solution with lifelong service.
What are your wishes and challenges, and what do you define as optimal cultivation and maximum yields? Our multidisciplinary solution team starts by listening and will propose technical installations.
The final proposal is then translated into smart, inventive, and practical designs by our own team of engineers. We base this on our many years of experience and use the latest technology and insights.
The technical solutions are manufactured in our automated machine park by our qualified production team. We ship worldwide and work with our own staff or in collaboration with (local) partners.
After delivery, we stay in contact with your company. We provide employee training, and we offer 24/7 service online and on location, guaranteeing a long and efficient service life of the technical installations.
Our team consists of experienced engineers, technicians, and programmers in areas of expertise such as data, cultivation, vertical farming, and internal logistics. We design and manufacture everything in-house at our head office and modern factory.
This ensures a high level of flexibility and accessibility. Characteristics of which we are very proud!Read more
