Under the name NERCPA, which stands for National Engineering Research Center of Protected Agriculture, an ultra-modern project was realised on Chongming Island off the coast near Shanghai (China). Several Dutch suppliers were involved in the development of this project. The project was realised in cooperation with our Chinese partner Dushi Green Engineering Co. Ltd. In the greenhouses, which consist of several sections, different types of vegetable are cultivated and also raised. The greenhouse systems were designed and engineered by the Bom Group. Nationally seen, the ambitions are great, and this is a very important project, using modern and sustainable technologies to reduce energy and water consumption, including the first heat and cold storage system in China. The whole thing had to be of superior quality, because the eyes of all China were on it, with the final objective of realising one of the most modern glass horticulture projects in China. NERCPA also serves as a training centre, where it is possible to learn how to make optimal use of modern facilities and the latest products and methods to cultivate energy-efficiently.
