Bom Group has commenced construction of the Winterlight Greenhouse. A 527m2 pilot project is constructed on the IDC site at Wageningen UR in Bleiswijk, The Netherlands.
This newly developed greenhouse concept integrates various innovative installations, materials and cultivation systems, which together result in a substantial increase in light coming in and a considerable decrease in energy consumption. For more information about the innovations applied, go to our pilot project page.
The new integrated greenhouse design was developed in collaboration with Wageningen UR, Ludvig Svensson, Bayer Cropscience and Glascom Tuinbouw.
The project was in part facilitated by the programme of Kas als Energiebron, the LTO Glaskracht Nederland’s innovation and campaign programme, and the Ministry of Economic Affairs.
