Cultivation of Phalaenopsis
During the design and realisation phase, there was continuous consultation between Ter Laak and other suppliers on the one hand and the sales, engineering, and production departments of Bosman Van Zaal on the other. This consultation involved a constant exchange of information on technical specifications and synchronising schedules.
In Phalaenopsis cultivation, the logistical cultivation system is the heart of the company, beating continuously. That is why the hardware and software must work faultlessly day and night, every day of the week. In consultation with the customer, a plan was drawn up for periodic inspection and preventive maintenance. In the unlikely event that anything should occur that require immediate attention, our service technicians are available 24/7.
The fully automated cultivation system based on a Container Transport System is fully compatible with the third-party installations in the new Daylight greenhouse. The system includes container lifts, overhead transporters, container transport robots, overhead stackers and overhead cranes.
Together with sister company Indigo Solutions, which is responsible for the software for the logistical system, our engineers translated the customer's wishes into a 3D design for cultivation, potting, spacing, sticking, sorting and delivery. The challenge lies in a flexible realisation of the beating heart of the project, within the hectic period of project organisation that manages several suppliers.
